Almost a year and a half ago I teamed up with Chris Colotti and Jeremiah Dooley and we wrote the first version of vCloud Director on Vblock Design Considerations. Well, it was time for an update. Since that time VCE Vblock Systems have rapidly matured as well as vCloud Director itself.
Introducing Designing VMware vCloud Director on Vblock Systems. This new version 2.0 of the paper was inspired by the first version but was written solely by me and a bit of help from VCE's graphic design team. Many of the old design considerations have been re-thought and re-architected with the maturity of the platforms. You can access the download page by going here: http://www.vce.com/solution/infrastructure/iaas and looking for Designing VMware vCloud Director on Vblock Systems.
Version 2.0 was originally published in May 2013, but of course it needs to go through the usual branding and legal review before it can be published. This new version introduces many new concepts that you will find interesting (even if you aren't a Vblock customer). Many of the design considerations are real-world examples from VCE customers as well as from my recent book VMware vSphere Design - vCloud Design by Kendrick Coleman. Please feel free to send me any feedback you may have.
