By continuously analyzing resource utilization at every layer of the stack, Turbonomic software identifies inefficiencies and generates actions to optimize resource allocation. This proactive approach helps teams accurately, and automatically, provision their environments, reducing unnecessary expenses associated with idle or underutilized resources.

Ensured application performance

Turbonomic software identifies potential bottlenecks and resource constraints in real time by analyzing the performance of an application and its underlying resources. The platform ensures that applications have the necessary compute, storage and network resources to operate at peak performance by generating actions to allocate resources dynamically. This allows organizations to streamline user experience and maximize productivity.

Reclaimed time

The Turbonomic platform’s proactive approach to application resource management, which identifies and addresses potential issues before they impact performance, improves workflow by reducing the time teams spend on reactive troubleshooting and problem solving. Turbonomic software’s automation capabilities also significantly reduce time spent on manual processes.

Case studies SulAmérica

The SulAmérica team initially relied on monitoring tools, and when faced with resource bottlenecks, had to manually analyze utilization metrics to identify issues. This approach led to reactive responses and hindered their ability to focus on innovation and scale as needed. Using the Turbonomic platform and its automation capabilities, SulAmérica improved performance and efficiency, reducing tickets by 70% and achieving an 11% improvement in node density.


Facing challenges in addressing performance issues and optimizing resource allocation in their on-premises and Microsoft Azure environments, Komatsu turned to the Turbonomic platform. By implementing automation based on the platform’s recommendations, Komatsu optimized its public cloud strategy, improved performance, reduced waste, minimized user complaints and saved over 33% on server run rates, with cumulative savings exceeding USD 650,000.

J.B. Hunt

J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc embarked on its public cloud journey in 2018, migrating a quarter of its on-premises workloads to Microsoft Azure. To address overprovisioning and manual intervention, the company used the Turbonomic platform to execute nearly 2,000 resizing actions over 12 months and save over 650 hours of their team’s time. When J.B. Hunt entered a strategic alliance with Google Cloud, they trusted the Turbonomic platform to optimize their Azure environment and successfully migrated to Google Cloud in just 35 business days with zero downtime.
