Cons

If they could somehow make the pricing more competitive, that would be a big draw.""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."

"This is very simple in OpenShift. We are happy with vCloud in terms of the virtualization but not for redundancy and distribution.""Lacks integration with the hyperscalers.""vCloud Director should improve by having support with other cloud providers, such as Microsoft Azure and Google cloud.""Database services need to go beyond what they are currently doing.""What could be improved in vCloud Director, particularly from the networking side, is its integration with other network devices. It also needs a more simplified installation because the process is a little bit complicated.""It would be nice to see some new features in respect of the GUI.""There are too many errors, it could be more stable.""There are new updates every quarter, so we need to purchase new support deployment services and some new products."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "It runs our company in the millions of rand every month."

  • "The license could be less expensive and we are on a perpetual license."
  • "In certain cases, the price of Cloud Director is quite high, especially with the load balancing and other features they've introduced. That seems quite costly. Overall, for VSPP programming, I think it's okay. However, features like enterprise load balancing and all these other things are very costly."
  • "We pay monthly for all of the licenses."
  • "vCloud Director is an expensive solution."
  • "vCloud Director is priced higher than other solutions, such as Nutanix."
