Hear Mike Campbell (mike.campbell), from ACI explain the value they derive from using VMTurbo to run their hosted financial solutions (payment processing) business.

 

He talks about how using VMTurbo helps him meet his specific business goal of delivering Performance, Stability and Security & Compliance to customers while managing their own growth and maintaining "infrastructure efficiency"

 

His challenges:

    • Managing overall growth and consolidation of M&A acquired environments
    • Taming increased opex pressure, especially in software licensing cost
    • Assuring performance and stability of core payment applications
    • Managing infrastructure sprawl and complexity

 

He talks specifically about the ROI they have experienced through gaining control of their infrastructure.

Here's what Mike had to say:

Southern Waste Systems (SWS) is the largest recycler of construction debris in the Southeast US, specializing in the collection and processing of commercial, industrial, municipal, and residential waste. Through ongoing R&D and process upgrades, they are the industry leader in the collection and recycling of yard waste, bulk residential waste and construction and demolition materials. VMTurbo helps them with virtualization management for their 24/7/365 environment. As their Director of IT says, “There’s no one else that does what VMTurbo does”:

 

 

Their system manages waste throughout the supply cycle from pickup to processing the materials for recycling and reuse to managing the sale of those materials on the commodity market to maximize the price they command. Their goal is zero waste, and they rely on complex backend systems to manage to that goal.

As a 24/7 operation dependent on the whim of commodity markets, SWS relies on the agility of their systems. Managing mobile apps on their infrastructure was a particular challenge for SWS, as performance issues in apps cascaded into delays throughout their environment.

 

nick.casagrande, IT Director for SWS, uses VMTurbo for Virtualization Management to ensure the quickest return of information to their employees. VMTurbo provides Casagrande’s staff a single-pane-of-glass view into all their operations from VDI to hypervisors for a complete, holistic picture of their environment to assure application and VM performance while maximizing utilization.

VMTurbo Overview Demo

Posted by eric.senunas Jun 4, 2014

This overview demo of VMTurbo takes you through each of the views (or "tabs") in the VMTurbo interface at a high level:

 

Are you using Microsoft System Center as your  principal operations dashboard? Now you can integrate it with VMTurbo Operations Manager’s intelligent workload management recommendations to gain a new aspect of operational control that is accessible through a single pane of glass. VMTurbo leverages capabilities in Microsoft System Center to notify you when Operations Manager recommends new control operations and resource allocations.

This video details how VMTurbo Operations Manager decisions can be integrated into your existing Systems Center implementation.

VMTurbo Storage Control

Posted by eric.senunas May 22, 2014

The Storage Control Module extends Operations Manager to provide visibility and control of storage resources. With Storage Control, VMTurbo automatically corrects performance issues that stem from storage-related constraints.

 

The VMTurbo 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.

VMTurbo enables risk-free V2V migration, as it accurately maps the end-to-end relationships, physical and logical resource utilization and capacity for all hypervisor flavors – including Hyper-V and VMware vSphere and their application services, VMs, hosts and storage in a single unified approach.  VMTurbo also understands resource and capacity demands across hypervisors, and the placement and resource allocation decisions necessary to keep the environment healthy and efficient – throughout the migration and beyond.

 

This unified approach across hypervisor flavors enables “what-if” planning – including the creation of actionable work plans to understand every possible aspect of migration to Hyper-V, as well as for growth in existing and new applications, guiding accurate infrastructure capacity requirements to assure performance while driving greater efficiency:

 

VMTurbo approaches capacity planning in a fundamentally different way. It uses efficient market principles to balance the supply and demand in your infrastructure, and applies these principles both now and into the future, producing accurate and actionable plans to ensure current and projected application needs are met without over spending on new hardware.

VMTurbo uses information from your living, breathing VMs and hardware not only to control your environment in a perpetual state of health, but also to simulate the changes you need to plan for, like:

  • Can we support that Exchange project?
  • How much hardware do we need to budget for?
  • Do we scale up or scale out to handle memory congestion?

In this segment from the recent VirtualizationSoftware.com Hyper-V readiness series webinar, VMTurbo’s Jon Reeve showed the audience how VMTurbo can help organizations plan for safe migration of vSphere workloads to Hyper-V, as well as plan for growth in a diverse environment:
