Top 9 new vCloud Director 1.5 features

During the VMworld sessions that Chris Colotti and I present the private vCloud architecture deep dive, we cover the top 9 new vCloud features included in version 1.5. Now I know vCD 1.5 was released a little while ago, but not everyone is aware of all the new features, so I thought I would list them here.

As a small annecdote Chris and I came up with this list late one night in Vegas before our session.  We had planned on listing the top 10, but could only manage our top 9 🙂

  • Microsoft SQL Database Support
  • vShield Edge VPN and Static Routing support
  • vShield Edge 5-Tupple Firewall
  • API Call-outs with blocking messaging
  • Elastic Virtual Datacenter
  • Fast Provisioning
  • vSphere 5 Support
  • Custom Guest Properties
  • Third Party VLAN Backed and VCD-NI

    Another major VCD 1.5 feature is the REST API Query Service.

    If you still want them 10, you could add
    – Enabling searching in Rest API or so called REST API Query Service.

    One more comment:
    What is listed as number 4 “API Call-outs with blocking messaging” is more popular as: Blocking Tasks and Notifications.

    Too bad that I am commenting on that after even VMworld Europe :).

    I just saw Teo has commented on that already.

    Well, 2 votes for that, you should add it :).
