VMware’s CTO, Dr. Stephen Herrod says “a lot of individual products that don’t work well enough together yet

And it’s on a YouTube video!

“VMware Cloud Infrastructure Suite is really more of a marketing term. Those of you know our products deeply know that they don’t fit this well together as they need to. Some of them have multiple databases, some don’t look the same, some install differently, and what I can’t stand that is Site Recovery Manager doesn’t currently work with vCloud Director. So, what we are basically able to say is that we created and acquired companies that led to a lot of individual products that don’t work well enough together yet.”

Oh, and if you’re in the market for a “real” Private cloud – here’s your solution:

  • Love it! Where is Tad's take on that! ;-)

  • Tad has no comment (yet)!  But I'd be willing to bet he's planning on making one:)

  • that their management software is incomplete and doesn't integrate with each other. In other news, the sky is blue, VMware still costs too much and the Memory vTax is still a huge problem.

  • "So a huge focus for the company is really how we make it become a suite." Context is everything, and omitting details like that and the fact he was referring to technology released to the market in June last year, is akin to half truths and lies. A cheap shot to go with Tad's cheap suit. Why don't you align this to the Microsoft management stack? Separate installers, separate databases, separate management interfaces, no or little integration. Any of these complex suites require time to integrate and streamline. Microsoft of all companies should know that. Don't play that game, only bigots will believe you.

    To the anonymous, the vTax, what about the M$ tax? We've been paying that for far too long.
