Alternatives to VMware Cloud Director Availability
Reviews of VMware Cloud Director Availability
Tool used to test new technologies and services.
Comments: In one case, good protection is achieved by providing automated recovery methods before disasters strike. It generates a lot of peace of mind to be able to count on this system in our organization, the characteristics are incredible.
Simple and safe against any bugs, it can be downloaded fast and easy to use, it is stable because it is a multi-user software, which is very good to have.
It is a complex platform as it requires a lot of local disk space to make it work, the benefits are very good, just minor limitations that are quickly overcome.
A very nice solution
Easy to use, reliable, highly configurable, robust
Alerting and monitoring not very easy to implement and follow
good software and was very accessible and this has enhanced various skills
price was abit much and thought that this can be improved
Polished and Feature Rich
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.
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.
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.
Reasons for Switching to VMware Cloud Director Availability: Continuous replication instead of snapshot based replication provides less of an impact on customer workloads. The price was far cheaper than Zerto while still achieving near real-time RPOs.

Rich and outrageous Disaster recovery product for multiple environments
Comments: VMware Cloud Director Availability has provided me with the best experience anyone would ask for. The customer support is amazing and the dashboard is well organized which makes the entire architecture and user interface clean and understandable.
The ability to reverse fail overs of apps is epic, reliable and very useful in recovering from data loss damages. It is rich in quality features and has an enormous accessibility making it possible for one to use it based on your needs. It offers an encrypted asynchronous replication Vmare Vsphere environment to ensure security.
The only downside about VMware Cloud Director Availability is the large storage space it consumes. It requires a lot of RAM space in order to function adequately.
