Comments: This tool is the more valuable pluging that you can have in VMware Cloud Director.First for customer that want to adopt VMware Cloud Director, second because it's an easy friendly tool for giving protection for customer.In terms of installation and management (point of view provider) it's very easy and scalable, minimum 3 Appliances on three level of networking, already hardened and no difficult cutomization needed

Pros:

Reporting by client is quite complex and i need to do this manually, but it will change with next version of Usage MeterNeed to provide more storage that needed to customer for doing the failoverMonitoring the tool is quite complex, but possible need to deepdive inside API

Best suite for DRaaS Solutions

4.0 9 months ago

Comments: VCDA has been a great addition to our organization's software stack. It is incredibly easy to utilize as it possesses a very smooth UI/UX design which makes backup schedule, vulnerability assessment, reporting and management a breeze.

Pros:

Possession of a smooth, reliable, and feaure-rich backup and disaster recovery solution with support for advanced cloud data security capabilities like authentication, access control and cloud data vulnerability assessment and management. Ease of backup schedule and backup log to enhance and streamline disaster recovery process. Support for incremental backup capabilities is also very useful as it allows us to schedule backup that restore only the data that has been created and changed since we conducted the previous backup.

Cons:

I can't remember any solid issues with VCDA since we implemented it to streamline our cloud data security and availability.

Polished and Feature Rich

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: The product is very polished and feature rich and pre-integrated into the VMware ecosystem. There is also great documentation and network diagrams already out there which will speed up the project to deploy this to production. The migrations are included at no additional charge which is a huge benefit to adoption of our cloud platform.

Pros:

The deployment process was very smooth and takes less than an hour even with a fully distributed environment. Also, integration with Cloud Director and vCenter server was seamless and automatic, even with self-signed certificates which are the default.

Cons:

Cloud Director must be present on one of the sides of a protection. It would be nice to allow VCDA to function without VCD and support our standalone vSphere and VCF environments.
