About Turbonomic

Turbonomic 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. Turbonomic automates decision-making (and the recommended actions, if enabled), reducing capital and operational costs, and the risk of service interruptions.
