Capacity Planner

VMTurbo Operations Manager planning functionality enables you to plan for short-, medium- and long-term fluctuations based on organic growth and environment changes. It can run “What if” planning simulations, allowing you to project the impact of changes to your environment, such as:

  • Datacenter consolidations
  • Hardware refreshes
  • New workload deployments
  • P2V and V2V migrations
  • Cluster flattening, and more

    Cloud Control Module

    VMTurbo’s Cloud Control Module extends Operations Manager to provide control and visibility into common Cloud Management Platforms – ensuring service delivery assurance while enabling efficient usage of the underlying infrastructure.

    The Cloud Control Module supports common Cloud Management Platforms including:

    • Virtual Cloud Director (vCD)
    • CloudStack
    • System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM)
    • OpenStack

    Application Control Module

    With the Application Control Module, VMTurbo can provide resource allocation decisions based on guest OS and application health. It also enables integration with Application Delivery Control (ADCs) including load balancing appliances that front end application farms:

    • Discover and manage applications as a single entity
    • Implement policy-based prioritization for tiers of service to ensure QoS for critical workloads if resources are over-utilized
    • Monitor real-time performance characteristics at the application layer (response times and latency) to make resourcing decisions that assure workload performance

      Storage Control Module

      The Storage Control Module extends Operations Manager to provide control and visibility of the underlying storage infrastructure. With the storage resource management software, VMTurbo automatically corrects and prevents performance issues that stem from storage contention and bottlenecks. The Storage Control Module supports:

      • NetApp including advanced storage features and packages such as NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP (cluster mode) and FlexPod
      • EMC VNX Series Arrays and related Vblocks

      Fabric Control Module

      The Fabric Control Module extends Operations Manager into the converged fabric. Fabric Control connects with Cisco UCS Manager and enables VMTurbo to map end-to-end relationships between virtual workloads, chassis, domains, blade servers, IO modules and fabric interconnects:

      • Gain visibility into fabric compute and bandwidth demands to maximize the utilization of Cisco UCS infrastructure
      • Break management silos and align storage, network, and server teams
      • Assure performance of workloads by aligning compute and network resources with workload demand
      • Optimize ongoing investment in Fabric Interconnect ports, and minimize port licensing costs by rightsizing required ports based on workload demand
