Today is a fantastic day as we share the news of our next-generation Turbonomic platform. Turbonomic 8—now in Preview—is built to scale to even the largest and most complex multi-cloud and hybrid environments as proven by our current early access customers who are each running with hundreds of thousands of objects managed by a single Turbonomic platform instance!
The most common request I get from tech folks in the field is that they don’t have enough time to experiment and learn new technologies. As a systems architect in my career, I had to really work hard to stay on top of trends and new technologies with both research and hands-on usage., so I know your pain.
Like all major technology revolutions, the cloud brings with it the mysticism of new technology, the fear of the unknown, and the opportunity to master a whole new set of challenges. It can be awesome and scary at the same time - provisioning servers in minutes instead of months, automation that can replace whole teams, and whole new security attack vectors.
Today, Turbonomic was named to Fast Company’s Best Workplaces for Innovators List! Joined by 100 other companies like Dell, Google, Etsy, and Nestle, Turbonomic came in at #57 for its ability to create a culture that empowers employees at all levels to improve processes, create new products, or invent new ways of doing business. This designation is awarded to organizations who demonstrate a serious and established commitment to building a culture of innovation that yields tangible results.
It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's Super Clusters!
One of the most valuable capabilities that organizations enjoy with Turbonomic is the ability to create what we call “super clusters”. A super cluster is a virtual resource pool comprised of physical clusters in your environment.
As a part of Turbonomic’s continued effort to support diversity in leadership, we are excited to sign on as founding members of the ParityPledge in Support of People of Color.

Turbonomic is thrilled to announce that we have been named an EMA Vendor to Watch! This designation is awarded to companies that deliver unique customer value or provide value in innovative ways.

This designation categorizes Turbonomic’s ARM as a leading solution in the AIOps market for its valuable combination of analytics and automation that produce revolutionizing AI.
There are no shortage of confusion talking about how CPU queueing works and how it ultimately affects your application and environment performance. Virtualization gave the industry something wonderful by enabling sharing of physical hardware resources, but it also opened the door to hidden issues that IT ops and application developers still struggle with every day.
Let’s quickly review what CPU queueing is and how processor wait times can have a catastrophic effect further up the stack.
