Resizing workloads based on their resources utilization is beneficial for performance and/or efficiency. Some management platforms require a reboot of the VM in order for the reconfigurations to take affect. Many organizations may not wish to power down their workloads during production/business hours, so creating a restriction window or maintenance window for Turbonomic to perform actions is crucial when automatically rightsizing virtual environments - unless you enjoy coming into work on the weekends/off hours.
These action restriction windows can be made for workload sizes that range from small groups of only a few VMs to whole clusters to entire datacenters. Watch the video to see how easy it is to implement an action restriction window in your environment.
