vCloud Director 9.0 Announced

Yesterday, 2017-08-28, VMware announced a new version of vCloud Director, (vCD)  meaning the most current release will be 9.0. Latest available vCD version today is 8.2 and was released February 2017.

There is not that much information available yet about new features and capabilities but here are a few:

  • Flex UI is gone and there is a new HTML5 UI. Good stuff:)
  • New VM lifecycle workflows. One screen instead of a maximum of seven in previously release. Not sure about REST API but I guess it has also changed.
  • vCloud Director Extender. Offers workload migrations between clouds, L2 extension where NSX is actually not required on premises
  • PostgreSQL (postgres) DB support.
