vCloud Director Other Solutions Considered

Chris Magee
Pre-Sales Engineer at Secura
VMware was always the way to go because other platforms, like Hyper-V, were already out there, but the products weren't as mature. They didn't have as many features. VMware is very good for HA and disaster recovery. We needed the scalability, because we started as a very small business and VMware allowed us to expand without too much hassle. View full review »

Working with VMware is different than working with Microsoft SPLA. SPLA is only for service provider level agreement. However, for VMware, you can work in different aspects.

VMware is better in terms of cost than Microsoft. View full review »

Our customers use different products like Azure, Amazon, and VMware. They use our infrastructure for disaster recovery. The objective is to recover. We chose to switch to VMware because our customers don't want to spend a lot to change make a transition. View full review »
