vCloud Director Review

​It has easy to deploy machines but is now difficult to implement because VMware no longer offers the product.


Valuable Features

It has easy to deploy machines.

Improvements to My Organization

A department can deploy a machine easily without using the IT department.

Use of Solution

I only used it for four months.

Deployment Issues

None in this version.

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues

Yes, a lot including, for example, with Chargeback Manager integration.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

8/10.

Technical Support:

5/10 as the VMware support seem very ignorant.

Previous Solutions

No, but in the future, we are planning to install Open Stack as it's simpler.

Initial Setup

It has an easy setup by following the documentation.

Implementation Team

We used a vendor team who I would rate as 7/10.

ROI

We couldn't calculate it.

Other Solutions Considered

Yes, with other colleagues. No implementations being done by us at the moment.

Other Advice

I think VMware has abandoned the product a with vSphere 5.5, vCloud Director is an obsolete solution. As VMware no longer offers the product, it is now difficult to implement.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are a VMware partner.

Hi Eduardo
the focus of this product was realize a full cloud solution (private and public). Now vcloud director is focused only for public cloud (for service provide purpose), because vRealize substitute it in private scenario.
For this reason, in your private scenario you could choose vRealize and Openstack also... please let us know about your possible new experience with them.
