vCloud Director restart from 8

By | 11/09/2015

Today is an intense day of releases of new major release. After vSAN, now is the moment of vCloud Director 8.0 (for Service providers).

vCloud Director 8.0 Capabilities:
vSphere 6.0 and NSX 6.1.4 support: vSphere 6.0 and NSX 6.1.4 are supported in vCloud Director 8.0 in backward compatibility mode.
Organizational virtual data center (vDC) template management: System administrators can now develop organization-specific virtual data center templates with pre-set resource and delegation rules. Tenants are now able to deploy these templates to quickly create new virtual data centers on a self-service basis.
vApp enhancements: System administrators can now reconfigure virtual machines within a vApp during vApp instantiation. This significantly streamlines management of vApps.
OAuth support for identity sources: OAuth2 tokens are now supported in vCloud Director 8.0.
Tenant throttling: This capability prevents certain tenants from consuming a majority of the resources for a single instance of vCloud Director and ensures fairness of execution and scheduling among tenants.
