Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

I would definitely recommend CloudCenter due to its wide extensibility. I am able to extend and deploy our system in all four following ways; content integration, tool integration, platform integration, and most importantly cloud integration. Content extensibility allows deploying containers such as Docker, while tool integration allows me to integrate the most important security components such as HSM.

VMware Cloud Director (formerly vCloud Director)

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.

Pros

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

  • We are able to automate deployment which has been a strength to the geographical distribution of the enterprise.
  • We have been able to work with a wider variety of developer tools and haven't had to customize to fit CloudCenter.
  • It is easier for us to allocate space and allow users to take advantage of the system directly with a minimum of overhead.

VMware Cloud Director (formerly vCloud Director)

  • 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.

Cons

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

  • Post-purchase support needs to be improved, it takes ages to solve a problem.
Nikola Marks | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware Cloud Director (formerly vCloud Director)

  • 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.

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

Alternatives Considered

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

We found that the cost advantages were greater by going with Cisco because of our present contracts and the materials and equipment we already had on hand. The reliability of the system, for us, outweighed any cost advantages we might have been realized by going with another provider. Certainly the service and support for the entire system is much better when handled by a single vendor with a good track record.

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.

Return on Investment

Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr)

  • Improved visibility on the cloud components of the company backbone.
  • Less response time from server to employee which is good.
Nikola Marks | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware Cloud Director (formerly vCloud Director)

  • 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
