We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"Upgrades are very simple as well because they've allowed us to get updates directly in the CloudCenter Suite manager. If you need to do an upgrade to your setup afterward, you just push a button and it rolls out the parts and retires the old ones. It's seamless and very simple compared to what we've done before.""The initial setup is fairly straightforward if you have a basic setup."

Therefore, when we bring in new members of staff, we can always give them the customer experience straightaway, and they can pick it up quite easily.""The self-service portal is the most valuable.

"The improvement I would like to see is not one thing particular to CloudCenter. I'd say it's more of a message that the system is still using a lot of the different products and if they would all just fit better together, they all could be faster together.""I'm not a big fan of CloudCenter. I don't have anything against it, however, the on-premise version has been so hard to upgrade and maintain."

"There didn't seem to be any type of integrated path on how to do the initial setup. There seemed to be different bits of paperwork or instructions available from various places. We always had to go looking for what to do next.""If you have a deployed environment and lose it, you can't easily deploy it back with vCloud Director. Because of this reason, we don't have the data protection, disaster recovery, and container features.""If you use it for a lot of customers, it is too heavy for this solution.""We have had very minor problems with it when we've been upgrading.""It could be more stable. We have had issues with multiple different versions.""vCloud Director could use the vCenter database to store information. This way, we don't end up in a situation where we have things going out of sync.""Initially, the setup was complex.""I would like to see mode accessory recovery and integration with SD-WAN."
