Sheds light on how an application functions and how it could be more efficient
We would go quarter-to-quarter and say, "Okay, go optimize our application environments." We could use Azure Monitor or a couple of other tools that aren't nearly as robust, and without knowing the impact, other than what Azure Monitor gives you. But Azure Monitor, which doesn't do memory metrics, would tell you, "You can reduce size by doing this," but maybe memory was the problem. Turbonomic is much more robust. Before using it, we were doing things in a very manual way. The way I got Turbonomic through the door was by saying, "You want to have your entire staff clean up the cloud every quarter?"

Easy to patch, except for the toleration issue and good dashboard
It seems pretty good so far. I have a meeting with the security team to review the results we're getting from it. I'm still early in the journey; I need feedback from the security team. I'm just the engineer deploying it. We have multiple Kubernetes clusters in different environments: Dev, QA, UAT, etc., and we go through to production. I've been getting it running on our Kubernetes clusters. I have a review with the security team who are the main users. Compared to Microsoft Defender for Containers and Sentinel, it seems comparable. I'm considering using Defender for Containers on the AKS cluster and feeding that into Rapid7 since it's used across our entire estate.

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice

"Licensing is per socket, so load up on the cores rather than a lot of lower core CPUs."
"You should understand the cost of your physical servers and how much time and money you are spending year over year on expanding your virtual farm."
"The pricing and licensing are fair. We purchase based on benchmark pricing, which we have been able to get. There are no surprise charges nor hidden fees."
"I don't know the current prices, but I like how the licensing is based on the number of instances instead of sockets, clusters, or cores. We have some VMs that are so heavy I can only fit four on one server. It's not cost-effective if we have to pay more for those. When I move around a VM SQL box with 30 cores and a half-terabyte of RAM, I'm not paying for an entire socket and cores where people assume you have at least 10 or 20 VMs on that socket for that pricing."
"It is an endpoint type license, which is fine. It is not overly expensive."
"Everybody tells me the pricing is high. But the ROIs are great."
"Contact the Turbonomic sales team, explain your needs and what you're looking to monitor. They will get a pre-sales SE on the phone and together work up a very accurate quote."
"The pricing is in line with the other solutions that we have. It's not a bargain software, nor is it overly expensive."

"We're doing an annual subscription. There are additional expenses, but not within the confines of this platform."
"Companies generally buy this tool because the pricing is not that high."
