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.

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

  • Adjust the price.
  • Improve the support in the implementation process.
  • Offer more days for the trial test.

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

SovLabs, part of CloudBolt Software

We selected SovLabs Microsoft Active Directory because is one of the best automation tools for Active Directory. The tool offers a lot of features that we use. Good support from the vendor and a good community. I strongly recommend SovLabs Microsoft Active Directory for automation. The tools does a great job.

VMware Cloud Director (formerly vCloud Director)

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.
