About VMTurbo Operations Manager

VMTurbo Operations Manager is a control system that ensures application performance while maximizing resource utilization in virtualized and cloud infrastructures. Rather than simply collecting metrics about the environment and alerting IT Operations when something goes awry, it continually tunes workload placement and resource configuration to achieve a perpetually healthy or “desired” state. Operations Manager automates decision-making (and the recommended actions, if enabled), reducing capital and operational costs, and the risk of service interruptions.
