CloudDRIVE

It seems to be adequate for those companies that have a lot of information and have the need for many of their workers to integrate or can visualize their information quickly and at any time. It helps to save space on the company's servers and it is very easy to access, it is also easy to use and understand, and it is a scalable storage system

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

CloudDRIVE

  • Internet access is needed at all times
  • If many people manage the cloud they can make the mistake of deleting some files
  • Confusing legal coverage, there are countries that do not have data protection laws

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

Basically this cloud is much more practical than others, it is fast and have greater storage capacity, but in reality, almost all cloud applications have the same function.

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

CloudDRIVE

  • Reduction of expenses in the company
  • A lot of capacity to keep information
  • You can store any type of file
  • It could improve if you could see files without internet
  • Sometimes a little slow

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
