    For a CSP it's the best choice. For internal uses, even in presence of different business units, it's not so easy and flexible to manage. It assures a high level of multitenancy, often not needed for internal purposes. But it could be used in this case, just not created for these purposes. Network management is great.

    VMware

    • The advantage to using vCloud Director is it a cloud based application allowing access anywhere. I have the ability to make changes to our virtual environment without being in the office or using a vpn.
    • The vCloud Director provides a lot of the same features as vSphere.

    VMware

    • It is not good for end users or customers to use. The UI is geared more towards VMware admins.
    • There is somewhat of a learning curve to it, you have to think through and plan out how you want to set your OVDC and PVDCs up. It takes a lot of architecture experience.
    • Once you built workloads in vCloud director, it's real difficult to take them out or manage them directly in vSphere. This is a huge pain.

        VMware

        Like most VMware, the vCloud Director support is not the best.

        Hyper-V is built on a Windows platform that includes services not needed for the virtual environment adding overhead. With vCloud I'm not required to maintain a host OS or it's updates. The requirement to maintain storage devices is no longer needed with vCloud as well.

        VMware

        • Time to market = 0 means profits almost immediate after investment
        • Customers trust the VMware brand more than any other
        • Elasticity: allowing the company to choose the best HW in the lower layer
