These automation capabilities make it a good fit for DevOps environments, including those that use containers and platform as a service (PaaS). It supports AWS and Azure but may not be the best option for organizations that use less well-known public cloud vendors.
Given the width and breadth of its feature set, Turbonomic is a good choice for business who use one of the two leading cloud platforms.
