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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

The VMware DRaaS integrates well with our cloud service provider to provide reliable disaster recovery solutions for all workloads in our company. The software is simple to set up but provides advanced endpoint protection and recovery services with top performance 24/7.

Pros

It's simple to use since the tools are very familiar with modern HTML interfaces. Deployment of VMware Cloud Director Availability comes with high stability. The solution also maintains peak performance with large workloads taking its effectiveness to top levels.

Cons

I am not completely impressed with the tired service model since workloads differ in several different aspects, it is controversial for their costs to be tiered together.
