Dead Easy, Agentless Deployment

VMTurbo is a VM that sits within the environment, and can then see and act upon (if allowed to do so) any virtual or cloud environment it’s pointed to. After the 500MB OVF download, you need to deploy the image through your vCenter. (If you’re using different hypervisor, you can pick the appropriate image for Hyper-V, Xen or RHEV.) The appliance will get an IP from your DHCP server (optionally, you can assign static IP). You can find the assigned IP in vCenter’s VM Summary view, or in the login banner for the appliance console. Navigate to the IP in a web browser and login with:

  • user: administrator
  • password: administrator

The setup wizard will guide you through connecting the appliance to vCenter, VMM, or other platforms. A detailed user guide is also available from within the interface.


  • Installs as a virtual appliance, that can be accessed from any browser that supports Adobe Flash
  • 16 GB memory; 4 vCPUs; 80 GB disk storage (80 GB storage + 16 GB swap space to match RAM)
  • Hypervisors/Management supported: VMware® vCenter versions 3.5, 4, 5.x or 6.x running with ESX(i) 3.x, 4.x, 5.x or 6.x; Citrix® XenServer 5.6, 6.x; Microsoft® Hyper-V version bundled with Windows 2008R2 or 2012R2; and Red Hat® Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) versions 3.x

A single instance of VMTurbo will manage 8,000 – 10,000 VMs. Larger environments should deploy multiple instances, which are aggregated together. In smaller environments, VMTurbo will automatically rightsize itself and giveback unneeded resources.
