Turbonomic 6.1Our Workload Automation for Hybrid Cloud Transforms IT
Turbonomic enables your teams with a single platform for hybrid cloud environments. The software continuously analyzes real-time workload demand and matches it to compute, storage and network resources in a hybrid cloud, public cloud, private cloud or virtualized on-prem environment. With the release of Turbonomic 6.1, our next generation, AI-powered decision engine extends the power of workload automation in the cloud, the datacenter, and for container platforms.
Assure Application Performance
Turbonomic enables workload self-management providing placement, scaling, and provisioning actions across hosts, clusters, datastores, data centers and cloud provider regions and zones. The platform delivers the quality of service users expect and prevents queuing, latency, and I/O contention — no chasing alerts!
Execute actions manually, automate on a schedule, or automate 24/7. Turbonomic improves application performance by 30% or more.

Any Workload, Any Infrastructure
Turbonomic understands the full stack; operating across multiple hypervisors, applications, cloud orchestration, public cloud providers and change management systems as well as storage, compute fabric, converged and hyper converged infrastructure. It controls the full scope and scale of the environment through APIs, no agents required. The platform maps and visualizes end-to-end relationships and resource consumption from application to virtual machines, compute, storage, storage controller, network, fabric interconnects and more.
Turbonomic is available in three editions, providing additional capabilities to meet your specific requirements and use cases. Each edition can be run on-premises, in a public cloud or across a hybrid environment. These editions make it easy to get started and see more value as you extend Turbonomic’s autonomic platform into all layers of the stack.

Deliver Application QoS
With Turbonomic, operators and application teams are able to define quality of service levels – response time or transaction throughput – for any application. The platform then continuously controls the environment to deliver the specified QoS levels while taking cost and business policies into consideration.
Turbonomic deploys as a single virtual machine. Within 30 minutes of deployment, the platform discovers the environment, identifies performance issues and presents the actions to remedy them. It then continuously evaluates the changing demands of applications against infrastructure supply and makes decisions that assure performance. You can take the actions manually or automate them like most of our customers do.
Lower Cloud Costs
Turbonomic lowers public cloud bills and maximizes infrastructure utilization by precisely matching real-time application workload demand to available shared resources. It continuously places and scales workloads, storage and databases, preventing resource contention while making the most efficient use of the infrastructure. The platform enables you to extend cluster and data center scope to exploit underutilized pools of resources. Most customers increase utilization by over 40%.
A traditional approach to managing contention is “shared peak provisioning”: resources are allocated based on the sum of the peak demands. This approach leads to dramatic over provisioning of resources, even on virtualized infrastructure.
Get the Most Productive Team Around
Turbonomic drives hybrid cloud environments to their Desired State – continuously assuring performance and lowering costs while ensuring compliance – and keeps them there. It frees teams from alerts and firefighting. When teams have control of their environment, they can focus on the projects that make a difference. With the Turbonomic platform IT operators are freed from reactive firefighting; architects and planners are able to effectively plan for new applications, additional users and hardware upgrades; and application owners and users experience improved performance.
Simple to Customize and Align
The platform works in harmony with existing operational policies (e.g. high availability, affinity, anti-affinity) while providing the ability to define service priorities, cost and placement policies. Dashboards and reports are simple to customize and share across your entire organization.
Turbonomic easily integrates with service orchestration and process management (e.g. Microsoft System Center, ServiceNow) further facilitating automation and scheduling change where approval is required.
Turbonomic seamlessly imports existing polices such as HA, affinity or anti-affinity and enables you to define new policies for operational or business requirements. The purpose built policy engine enables dynamic group creation (e.g. all hosts with 8 vCPUs, all SQL VMs) and rule assignment ensures VMs only run on those hosts that have been licensed. Business policies are easily defined. For example, sanctioned cloud provider regions or data centers for data sovereignty or compliance with HIPAA or PCI. Turbonomic ensure continuous compliance without sacrificing performance or increasing costs.
Scale with Confidence
Turbonomic provides initial placement decisions based on the demand characteristics of existing and new workloads. New workloads are matched to existing shared resources and future workloads are held as reservations avoiding resource contention and accelerating cloud initiatives.
Self-service provisioning: Turbonomic integrates with cloud management tools including vRealize Automation, OpenStack, CloudStack, ServiceNow, System Center Orchestrator and VMM to correctly place new VMs directly on the right host, cluster and datastore or public cloud region and zone depending on the anticipated load.
New workloads get the best initial placement and existing workloads are not impacted. New VMs can be based on custom or pre-defined templates
Workload reservations: Turbonomic will reserve space in the infrastructure for upcoming application deployments. If the infrastructure can no longer support the anticipated load, the software will notify operators. Upon deployment, the software will identify on which targets (hosts, clusters, and datastores or public cloud regions and zones) each new VM should be deployed.
Effectively Manage Capacity
Turbonomic determines when allocation of resources is not aligned with workload demand, driving decisions to provision more or suspend capacity. It enables you to simulate changes across the environment for new application workloads, public cloud migration, hardware refresh, data center or cluster consolidation, and more.
With Turbonomic you can develop before-and-after pictures of potential scaling, capacity and placement strategies for your data center or a public cloud migration.
