Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
- High availability
- Multi region
- UX could be better
- API change a lot between versions
- Building virtual racks
- Managing the customers' network and security
- Simplicity but the completeness of IaaS solution
- Integration with major software providers
- integration with SDS different than vSAN
- Manage more granularly users
- 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.
- The add-on/extension required on the internet browser sometimes are difficult to get working at first. We've experience instances where the add-on/extension latest versions will not work and have to downgrade to an older version.
- The server console lacks features and tools. For example it would be useful to have a copy and paste tool or a file upload tool.
- The vCloud Director management site uses Adobe Flash, which makes it impossible to use on a mobile device.
- Manages multi-tenancy very well. You can setup resource pools of compute, network, and storage that are independent of each other.
- Easy to create and manage multiple environments.
- Has lease management technology and can easily set leases and expire them based on pre-configured time frames.
- 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.
