Dollar Universe Workload Automation

It is suitable for the scenarios that require more automation of the workloads in heterogeneous environments in order to reduce human errors and standardize the workflow.

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

Dollar Universe Workload Automation

  • Functional across multiple platforms
  • Lightweight and reliable
  • More scope for increasing automation
Vaibhav Sharma | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Dollar Universe Workload Automation

  • Maybe UI can be further improved to be more intuitive and user friendly.
Anonymous | 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.

It is a good technical choice for the enterprise to promote automation and integration, and switching from the traditional silo manual work to a new event-driven, fully automated workflow, allowing better visibility and resilience.

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

Alternatives Considered

Dollar Universe Workload Automation

Well versed tool like others in industry.

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.

  • Elasticity: allowing the company to choose the best HW in the lower layer
