What is most valuable?

It has a lot of great reporting features in it that help us scale with our products, and to scale with different things that we're trying to work on, on a day to day workload. It's a great tool to analyze those type of things for us.

What needs improvement?

This is pure IaaS cloud backend software with absolutely no additional services which are offered by Amazon and Microsoft today. Lacking additional services reduces the level of... more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We used rented servers running VMware ESX/vSphere on SoftLayer and decided to switch to VCloud Director because we got tired of the hardware issues we had with those servers (RAID... more»
