Long Live the vCloud Director


Some time ago VMware decided to give vCloud Director an API only strategy, that means the new features would only be available through APIs call and the graphical user interface (GUI) would not be updated to reflect these enhancements anymore, so for the clients be able to use these new features they would need to create their own mechanism to use them, like creating it’s own portal.

Everyone who knows me a little bit know that among all VMware’s products the one I like the most is vCloud Director and despite the fact if I do agree or not with this API only strategy, VMware has decided to change vCD’s strategy back to a full feature parity between GUI and API, I could not be more happy.

It would take some time until all the past features like, Organization Virtual Datacenter Templates, Virtual Machine monitoring metrics, Virtual Machine disk level storage profile and more, be available on the GUI but we are working on it.


Long Live the vCloud Director !!!
