New Virtual Datacenter Release 10.1

Tuesday, 28. April 2020

The latest release 10.1 for the Virtual Datacenter Management Console VMware Cloud Director was rolled out last Monday. You’re right, it’s no longer called vCloud Director but only Cloud Director. Besides the name change there are some other awesome changes, especially in the user interface. You can look forward for the following:

Bye-bye Flash Interface

The flash interface was definitely switched off and can no longer be activated. The HTML5 interface has been extended with all missing functions and is now the central hub for the management of your Virtual Datacenter environment.

Optimized GUI

The hamburger menu has been replaced by a horizontal menu that allows faster access to all important functions.

VMware Cloud Director 10.1: Das Hamburger-Menü wurde durch ein horizontales Menü ersetzt, dass den schnelleren Zugriff auf alle wichtigen Funktionen gewährleistet.

The settings of the vApps and VMs are shown clearer and were partially rearranged.

VMware Cloud Director 10.1: Die Einstellungen der vApps und VMs wurden ebenfalls übersichtlicher gestaltet und teilweise neu angeordnet.

Badges for VMs and vApps

Use badges to mark VMs and vApps with different colors for organizational purposes. This is useful for differentiating between test and production systems, different services, service levels or other factors. You can filter your systems according to badge color.

VMware Cloud Director 10.1: Mittels Badges markieren Sie VMs und vApps zu Organisationszwecken mit unterschiedlichen Farben.


Multi-select allows you to start, shutdown, take snapshots or update VMware Tools for multiple VMs or vApps simultaneously.

VMware Cloud Director 10.1: Die Mehrfachauswahl ermöglicht das gleichzeitige Starten, Herunterfahren, Erstellen von Snapshots oder Updaten der VMware Tools für mehrere VMs oder vApps gleichzeitig.

Advanced filter

Filter your vApps and VMs with a few clicks according to various criteria and find the objects you are looking for quickly.

VMware Cloud Director 10.1: Filtern Sie Ihre vApps und VMs mit wenigen Klicks nach unterschiedlichen Kriterien und finden Sie so schnell die gesuchten Objekte.

Connecting networks with Edge Gateway

You can disconnect and reconnect existing OrgVDC networks from the Edge Gateway. Until now the whole network had to be deleted and recreated for this purpose.

VMware Cloud Director 10.1: Sie können bestehende OrgVDC Netzwerke vom Edge Gateway trennen und wieder verbinden. Bisher musste dafür das ganze Netzwerk gelöscht werden.

Minor GUI optimizations

Many minor optimizations of the GUI have been made, for example wizards have been structured more logically or the arrangement of individual elements has been made clearer.

VMware Cloud Director 10.1: Es wurden viele kleinere Optimierungen des GUIs vorgenommen, beispielsweise Assistenten logischer strukturiert oder die Anordnung einzelner Elemente übersichtlicher gestaltet.
