The Turbonomic Market is an abstraction that represents the datacenter as buyers and sellers in a supply chain. Each entity (such as physical machines, virtual machines, storage device, volume, application component) in the environment is a buyer or seller.  The Turbonomic Supply Chain is a graphical display of the buyer and seller relationships. 

Turbonomic uses Virtual Currency to give a budget to buyers and assign cost to resources. This virtual currency assigns value across all tiers of your environment, making it possible to compare the cost of application transactions with the cost of space on a disk or physical space in a datacenter.


In Turbonomic on-prem environments, Mem is a measure of the memory resources on a host, measured in bytes (GB or MB).
