Selected Research Highlights


Case Study: Moran Towing Corporation

Introduction

This case study of Moran Towing Corporation is based on a August 2015 survey of Turbonomic customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We constantly struggle with the amount of resources allocated to each server. Vendor and App teams always want to over allocate for resources. This is a way for the server team to reclaim resources that are not needed on each server. It also can speed up a server if the CPU is over or under utilized. Turbonomic has been extremely reliable and the customer support/training has been outstanding. I am very happy with the product.”

Case Study: Large Enterprise Construction Company

Introduction

This case study of a large enterprise construction company is based on a August 2013 survey of Turbonomic customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

Challenges

  • Solved the following challenges with Turbonomic:
    • Difficulty completing labor-intensive operational tasks
    • An inconsistent Quality of Service (QoS) for/or disruption of virtualized workloads
    • An inability to plan for the future

Use Case

  • Has 500 to 999 virtual machines in their environment.
  • Currently has > 80% of their production systems virtualized in their environment.

Results

  • Realized value within 1 to 3 months after deploying Turbonomic.
  • Rates the following Turbonomic features as they compare to the competition:
    • Time to value: differentiated
    • Comprehensive what-if planning: highly differentiated
    • Centralized cross-domain mgmt: highly differentiated
    • Automated control: highly differentiated
    • Customer engagement: differentiated
  • Rated the percent increase in the following areas since deploying Turbonomic:
    • IT staff productivity: 20% to 39%
    • Resource utilization: 40% to 59%
  • Rated the likelihood of recommending Turbonomic products to a friend or colleague as 8 out of 10.

It shows us that we are not consuming all our resources and that we have provisioned enough capacity for the demand required. In fact, what we learned is that a lot of systems were over-provisioned and we have used Turbonomic’s data to reclaim resources from business applications.
