vCloud Director Review

The compatibility with vSAN and NSX is its greatest feature. However, we previously had compatibility issues migrating VMs from a vCenter to it.

What is our primary use case?

We use it in a new data center. 

What is most valuable?

The compatibility with vSAN and NSX is the greatest feature of vCloud Director. It also has integration with vROps, which is quite nice.

What needs improvement?

In version 6.7, compatibility to migrate VMs from a vCenter to vCloud Director had a problem. However, this has been solved in the newest version.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is the best part.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Our customer wanted to deliver a host and new services. We discussed what would be good solution and thought that vCloud Director would work.

What was our ROI?

It has enabled us to provision new clients faster. We don't have to configure a new host nor configure a new VM. We just have to secure it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is better than other solutions out there when it comes to cost.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend, especially with the new features coming out in versions 8.0 and 9.0.
