Automated 2500 VMs and 250 datastores and saw improvements in the environment.
Achieved on-demand capacity management with Turbonomic.
Automatically assures compliance with Turbonomic intelligent workload placement.
“Within just a few days, we saw improvements in our environment and are now automating over 2,500 VMs and 250 datastores. The largest impact on my day-to-day by far has been being able to get time back to work on other projects.”
Taking Control with Fully Automated Resourcing Actions
“We were looking for greater control over our environment and during our search we came across Turbonomic,” said Simon. “In less than an hour it had discovered my entire environment and was already making recommendations.” Within days of the quick and easy deployment, Simon was seeing dramatic improvements, specifically in the test environment. “I fully automated and never looked back,” said Simon. “We were able instead to utilize what we already had much more efficiently.”
Not only has Simon been able to avoid additional hardware costs, but he and his team have seen incredible returns in the time saved by not having to consistently combat performance issues within their environment “The largest impact on my day-to-day by far has been being able to get time back to work on other projects,” said Simon. “Every day, I seem to find new ways it can help make my job easier.”
“In an environment as complex as ours, we found that monitoring and manually taking vMotions alone were not enough. Since we automated, Turbonomic has enabled us to scale with confidence and become more proactive. It’s eliminated alerts and the break-fix loop from our operations, helping us to work smarter.”
Managing Capacity on Demand, Maintaining Compliance Automatically
Since deploying Turbonomic in his environment, Simon has seen incredibly positive feedback from his users on the performance of virtualized servers, further reinforcing the decision to purchase the platform. “When large requests come in, Turbonomic’s capacity planning tool helps us to ensure we are able to accommodate the resources being requested.”
Being a large health care organization, Houston Methodist has numerous compliance and privacy rules they must abide by, including but not limited to HIPAA, PCI and SOX regulations. Turbonomic automatically accounts for security and compliance policies or restraints which have been placed on a workload, leaving one less thing for Simon to spend valuable time worrying about. “We use the cluster merge with group policies to define disaster recovery datastores and ensure compliance of all workloads,” said Simon. “We know what we need not only to be appropriately prepared for the future but to be in accordance with compliance regulations all the time.”
