OpsNow

We use OpsNow for Multi-Cloud Management (DXC and Azure) Clouds. This is the best scenario because in only one platform you can have all information about your resources such as your environments, Planning, designing, delivering, operating, and managing the cloud represents more than just infrastructure operations, project or service requests and error handling, to manage your Cloud IT from development to operation in its entirety.

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

OpsNow

  • There isn't Live Online training
  • Insufficient languages, for now only available English

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.

The general support is very good because is online and also its available during business hours. I think OpsNow doesn't have 10 because support 24/7 isn't available yet. I hope in the near future it will be available.

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

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

OpsNow

  • We save almost 1,000,000.00 USD in infrastructure
  • Now we have all processes centralized in a single 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
