    Phew! That was one long article! So are you moving to vCAC (they call it vCack, right!?) Easy/difficult/tedious?
    NSX, NSX, more NSX..

    They call it v-C-A-C. Someone told me Cack sounds like a profanity in some language. The end user interface is better in vCAC & the template (blueprints in vCAC) are customizable in vCAC. Haven't had a chance to play with NSX, but it's got to be simpler than vCD networking.

    Got finally some answers from the horses mouth.

    1. vCloud Director will be the product for Solution Providers only (due to the multi-tenant "feature")
    while
    2. vCAC will be the product for Enterprise customers

    Neither is dead :)

    VCP-Cloud is my next stop. Lab parts incoming as we speak. Still can't get motivated to focus down on DCD for some reason.

    Don't forget - if you are holding the VCP5-DCV (Current VCP5) - there is no need to pass the VCP-CLOUD exam (VCPC510) - You just need to pass the VCP-IAAS exam (VCPVCD510) in order to gain the VCP-Cloud ...

    Yeah I know. Just using it as foundational learning of the product. Going straight to CIA isn't really something I want to pot commit on just yet.

    Wow that's totally not what you were referring to. Hello Friday!

    Same here... I got the IAAS on Tuesday but a colleague wants to go straight to CIA .. I know the CIA includes the VCP-Cloud obviously, but I think I will take it easy as I really don't know if I even want to take the CIA so I rather do the IAAS now, get it done and over with (Before it goes into 5.5 mode and adds VCAC and all that nonsense I haven't played with yet :p ) , and continue to work on my VCAP-DCA

    Plus the IAAS renews the VCP ... another bonus...

    Once the DCA is out of the way, I re-evaluate the CIA. With VCHS kicking off, by the time I finished the VCAP-DCA, maybe a certification for VCHS is out which I will then prioritize ... Would be good to get into here in the UK as VCHS was JUST launched. Would be great to be one of the first ones having a cert (if one is in the making that is).

    Might actually ask VMware lol ...

    Sorry I thought this was more widely known (something I was aware of last year). vCAC is still not 100% there as far as VMware are concerned, there are definite improvements due in Q1 this year with more features expected at VMworld.

    VMware are suggesting that people looking at running a vCD deployment now actually look at vCAC and vFAD (or vCAD depending on the version and packaging) but I would suggest thinking long and hard before deploying vCAC as it's still a beast of a deployment (vCAC 5.x required a whole host of machines that never really 'worked', vCAC 6 is still too large a deployment and I want to see what the next release is going to offer).

    Yes the only time anyone will see vCD is if you're a service provider (or require multi-tenancy) but I feel it's a pity that they decided to move away from mainstream vCD and hived it off to be a niche product (a lot of ESXi.next will be a mix of vCD and vCAC\vFAD so expect good things with ESXi.Next).

    I would also suggest looking at vCO as a solution as well because that's a good interim solution for those of you who don't want full blown vCAC just yet (vCO and vFAD deployments are very possible using Chef, Puppet and a host of other infrastructure using different plug-ins to vCO).

    VMware also has a ton of engineering vCHS jobs in Frimley. ;) If only they'd relocate...
