Our organization is currently looking into the use of vCloud Director to allow other companies to provision space for their own cloud computing needs. In the past, we have just used vSphere but then we have to do all the maintenance and would rather let the other companies manage their own cloud space.

Currently, we use the VMWare View Client to allow customers to access their desktops. If a customer moves to all Cloud Director, how would they access their desktops? VMWare View does not seem like something that can run and be configured properly using just Director. What are our options?

Currently the official VMware statement is :- VMware View and vCloud Director are not supported together.

But some are now doing it:-

I'm not sure what your timeframes are, but it's being "discussed" currently at VMware, and we will learn more this year after VMWorld 2013! (August2013)
