Extend Turbo's parking/suspending capabilities to on-premises VMs

Extend Turbo's parking/suspending functionality to VMs in vmware/hyper-v enviornments. For all the same reasons Turbo supports parking VMs in the cloud, Turbo should extend this functionality to on-prem workloads. By turning off idle resources, Tu...

Allow to delete wasted files from Turbonomic UI

Turbonomic recommends actions to delete wasted storage files on datastores. I want the ability to manually accept these and have the files be deleted on the vCenter datastore.

Allow for managing VM-to-VM anti/affinity rules directly in Turbonomic

As a user I would like the ability to create/modify/delete VM-to-VM affinity/anti-affinity placement policies, so that I do not have to create/modify/delete these rules in vCenter.

Allow for scaling actions that do not block move actions

As a user I would like the ability to configure Turbonomic to ignore scaling actions when consumers shop for providers in the Market, so that I can enable WPA/Move automation before I enable automated scaling actions and not impact any move actions.

Allow CPUs to be resized based on core count (vs MHz) for Consistent Resize

Currently, consistent resize for HA pairs only recommends adjustment based on MHz. We have vms that are on different hardware, resulting in different recommendations for core count. We have internal requirements for our vms in the same HA group to...

VDI - GPU support/improvement

Improve on-prem placement and sizing analysis with additional GPU constraints: - Adding GPU related metrics - Placement actions to take GPU utilization & constraints into consideration - Scaling actions to update GPU profile (GPU size)

To be able to change Scaling Target VMEM Utilization for On-Premises

Currently, almost all of my SQL Servers are considered to not have enough memory according to Turbonomic as it appears to want 70% free memory. This was told to me by support. This threshold is way above what VMware and Microsoft consider to be be...

VMware Horizon Instant Clone Enhancement

IU health has 18k Horizon Users spread across 14 desktop pools at peak and typically see 10-11k users in steadystate. The environment is designed to have large pools with little segmentation to unlock as much capacity as needed. The global entitle...

Ability to set utilization and other constraints on group or cluster level

IBM Turbonomic is currently importing admission control settings which are part on a VMware HA policy as utilization constraint affecting all host in a cluster individually. For a stretched cluster this means that a 50% maximum utilization constra...

Pure Storage Data Reduction Ratios not being picked up by Turbo. Using the manual Over-provisioning %. Therefore Turbo makes unnecessary Provision Disk Array Recommendations

The customer says Turbo's AI should be picking up data that is available in the PURE Storage system - and should not be requiring that the Storage Capacity Planners be adjusting the Storage Overprovisioned Percentage in the Disk Array Policy. I wi...
