vCloud Director Valuable Features

Chris Magee
Pre-Sales Engineer at Secura
The scalability is amazing. It gives our customers the options that they need. If they suddenly need to add more resources, they don't need to plan for it. They just need to pay us for it, and we can extend it for them. It's good giving the customers power. Thus, if a customer wants to reboot their server or if their server is hung, they don't need to give us a call. They simply need to log into their portal and reboot it. View full review »

The multi-tenancy feature is very important for us from a service perspective. The recent new capabilities are a huge step forward for this product. The data protection, disaster recovery, and container features are limited but evolving as well. We use some third party products for data protection and disaster recovery. View full review »

We like that it's multi-tenant, is supported, that it evolves with time and allows us to offer services to our enterprise customers in the B2B segment The self-service features have been very valuable to our organization. We are a service provider so we push access to our customers so that they can self-serve. With every version, it evolves more. It gets better with time. It allows us to provision new clients faster because we also automate with CLI which is a valuable feature for us. View full review »

We have found the whole suite of cloud applications to be the most valuable features. If you start a cloud, either private or hybrid, it will support you and you will get more features. It covers support in terms of computing, networking, and everything. The self-service feature has helped migrate a new customer from on-premise infrastructure to on-cloud. View full review »

My impression of the data protection, data recovery, and container features is that they're all very good, I like them. Although I don't particularly have a use case for them within our company. It's very expensive but it's something we've looked into. I like the functionality that's available with Orchestrator. The platform stability stuff that I would be involved in worries me from the automation side because you have a lot less hands-on control of things. Price point, it kind of puts us off.

vCloud Director works and makes my life easier. Its self-service capabilities allow us to give resources to our customers. They can spin up as many or as few machines as they like, and it works. We don't have to worry about it. We maintain the platform, and our customers take care of the rest. I am happy with the data protection. View full review »
Senior Cloud Architect at a comms service provider with 501-1,000 employees
The most valuable features for us are that our customers can create their own data center. At the moment we don't use vCloud Director for data protection or disaster recovery. We are thinking about seeing the demo for vCloud Director and to implement the data next year. The self-service capabilities have allowed our customers to have their own templates and to deploy from those templates. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the fact that it's a VMware product. The majority of our customers already have this product on-prem; they are happy to use the same solution also in our cloud environment. View full review »

ESG is one of the most valuable features. It deals with networking, traffic, and the security of some features like load balancer. View full review »

We have found the multi-tenants to be a valuable feature. I think that the data protection, disaster recovery, and container features are the future. We work with the cloud Availability product. We want our clients to use it but we have had a lot of problems with it so we'll wait for the next version. View full review »

Senior Solution Specialist with 1,001-5,000 employees
The self-service portal is the most valuable. We are acting as a service provider, so our customers can take care of their virtual data centers with the self-service portal. Therefore, we don't need staff for it. We consider it intuitive and user-friendly. It offers a variety of functions for the customer to control the networking, virtual workloads, disk snapshots, and all of vSphere's core features. View full review »
