The initial contact with VMware was productive and useful to understand their product offering. It was a surprise to find our on-premise solution using SRM, EMC Recover-Point was more mature than vCloud Air DRaaS.
If you're a customer with significant VMware workload this is a viable solution for disaster recovery.
It's similar to the products running in-house versus a Microsoft Azure or AWS.
It lacks on-demand offerings regarding disaster recovery.
Spend more time developing their product to align with their other product offerings. It was disturbing to find out SRM a product in the marketplace for a long time not working with vCloud Air.
There hasn't been a need to start over.
VMware technical support has been knowledgable in the subject matter and helping resolve issues.

Overall the product was good. VMware is a great partner, the VCloud services are still being evaluated.
Perform sample POC of workloads and how you would manage this environment.
Integration with current Virtualization technologies.
Cost models and lack of long term road map for VCloud services.
Reduced pricing models and long term roadmap exposure.
Gather requirements in more details and set clear expectations.
Good capabilities. However, we are still evaluating the long term business model.
Integration with our current Virtualization technology was very good.

Implementing was easy but integrating with back-end services was a difficult task.
Focus on integration to back-end services.
Focus on the integration aspects first.
