Cons
"There could be an improvement with the integration with the newest solutions from other vendors' technologies."

More Cisco UCS Director Cons →

"Cloud Director has room for improvement in many areas. One critical thing that comes to mind is the hyperscalers. They could be more seamlessly integrated into the hybrid cloud.""This solution could improve by adding root cause analysis.""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.""We use vCloud Director along with Terraform, and it's difficult to make them work together. It takes a long time to deploy virtual machines with Terraform in vCloud Director. For example, it can take about one or two hours to create 10 machines. It takes up a lot of our DevOps' and engineers' time in comparison to that with other solutions. This is an area that they should work on and improve.""The integration between components could be improved.""It would be nice to see some new features in respect of the GUI.""vCloud Director should improve by having support with other cloud providers, such as Microsoft Azure and Google cloud."
