Morpheus

Morpheus is well suited for those who want to have a management pane of glass that will allow you to see what you are consuming and how you are consuming it. It also ties into many other types of software and the development team seems to be constantly improving the product. That lends it to being a bit complicated. If you want something easy to set up, this isn't your product.

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.

  • True multi-tenancy.

  • 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

Morpheus

  • More dashboard/visualization capabilities

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.

We have always been able to reach the support organization at Morpheus on the rare event we needed them. They have been nothing but helpful.

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

Alternatives Considered

Morpheus

We previously were using VRA. VRA, while some of the new versions look interesting is hard for both administration as well as end user consumption.

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

Morpheus

  • Excellent monitoring tool

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
