New version of vCloud Director in HTML5
The current interface vCloud Director is coded in Flash and has several limitations.
The coders at VMware have prepared a new version of vCloud Director in HTML5, which is built in accordance with the newest web application trends.
As for now, the interface is a funcional demo implemented within the service BENESTRA Virtual Datacenter. Numerous functions are being added on the run as they are made available by developers of VMware.
The most important are folowing improvements:
- upload and download (ISO, OVF/OVA) without the necessity of client integration plugin installation and support of NPAPI in your browser
- option to setup reserved resources for CPU and MEMORY
- monitoring of resources (disk, CPU, MEMORY) for each VM (Monitoring Charts) for the last week – will be extended later
- graphical interpretation of resources in your VDC (usage/totals)
ATTENTION! It is still a DEMO version! Use at your own responsibility.
BENESTRA holds no responsibility for any errors.
