What the judges said: “By deploying a cloud automation layer in the form of vCloud Director, the trust demonstrated an appreciation that a new layer of abstraction was needed to separate the consumers of their services from the virtual and physical layer underneath. An approach that the judges felt was a central tenant of a true cloud environment.”
