Amazing features have been introduced in version 5.9. Processing has been improved and it is now 100 up to 400x faster. The table below shows some examples of the time needed to analyze the environment based on VMs number.
Lower Cloud Costs
Turbonomic now displays real-time costs of your workloads placed in AWS and Azure environments. You can see breakdown by different views to better analyze costs vs performance.
Cloud Account – you can see the breakdown by Cloud Account.

Budget Management – you can specify a fixed monthly budget to spend providing best placement with available cloud targets.
Cloud migration planning

From the Global Environment tab, click on PLAN button.
Select Migrate to Public Cloud as plan type.
Select VMs to migrate.
You can choose on which provider you want to move to (AWS, Azure or both) and the available regions. Select desired Provider and Regions.
Turbonomic displays the costs with or without Turbonomic for the selected plan showing the difference in terms of saving.
Designated HA workloads are spread across multiple cloud regions and availability zones or data center, cluster and hosts on-premises complying with risk management specifications for mission critical applications.
Applications workloads can get the resources they need, when they need them, for the lowest cost, continuously in real-time.
Costs can be controlled with Turbonomic due to its capability to automatically scaled down or suspend instances when they are not needed without impacting performance.
