Latency is the time it takes for a storage device to reply to a request for data. Charts show the latency experienced by all VMs and hosts that access a given datastore. 

In Turbonomic, latency is expressed as a commodity that can be bought and sold. For a given datastore, there is no real capacity for Latency, but Turbonomic assigns a default storage latency capacity of 100ms.


A license is a file that you install on a Turbonomic instance to gain access to Turbonomic features. 

Under the Settings View, the license summary displays license details such as total workloads licensed, workloads in use, and the currently activated features.

If you exceed your workload count, Turbonomic will continue to manage your environment, but you will not be able to add new targets or upgrade your instance. If your license expires, Turbonomic will continue to monitor your environment, but you cannot execute recommended actions.

Lift and Shift

Lift and Shift is a strategy for moving an application or operation from one environment to another without stopping to redesign the app or operations workflow (WhatIs.comhttps://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/lift-and-shift).

In Turbonomic Migrate to Cloud plans, the plan results include Lift and Shift, and Optimized comparisons. Lift and Shift plan results are for migrating your workloads to the closest available match of resources on the target cloud environment.
