Allow Turbo to recognize VMs agnostic to vCenter

We have vCenters broken out by availability zone, purpose, and data centers. We have regular movement between vcenters, as well as data centers for DC migrations. In these situations, we cannot use Turbo and the VMs lose all VM history when it's m...

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...

Nightly Plans Cluster Resize (By Host)

A customer is looking for additional information to be made available from our Nightly Plans run. They would like to include a Cluster RightSize calculation or, be provided with the number of hosts can be suspended. They calculate on a daily basis...

Allow moving of VM's on a datastore not in a Storage Cluster to a datastore in a Storage Cluster and vice-versa

Allow moving of VM's on a datastore not in a Storage Cluster to a datastore in a Storage Cluster and vice-versa. Currently this type of action is blocked due to a Turbo limitation not a VMware limitation. This is needed when customers have to migr...

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...

Integrate with SolidFire | Direct VM iSCSI

My customer JPMC has been greatly expanding their use of Solidfire/direct connect iSCSI storage. As we can't see that, the environment is not anything we can manage, and leaves us out of a major opportunity area. For the customer, the use of Solid...

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.

Customer requests that the networking portion of the Turbonomic supply chain show some data in the supply chain

Austin from TravelClick has a request that has some merit to it. The only way a person can see some real networking throughput numbers is to drill down to the VM level. We must be gathering the throughput numbers, yet when you click on networking ...

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...

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)
