Virtual server provisioning automatically

In order to establish automatic Virtual servers deployment with customizing and setting each value as well, I'm considering using vCloud orchestrator and Chef or something.
Under this situation, are there any advantages in using vCloud Director ?
Or
Is it sufficient for vCO and Chef or something ?

It depends how pretty and how automated you would like it to be?

You could just create scripts, via PowerShell/CLI to create VMs, or do you want an End User Portal ?

Hi Andrew
Do you mean if end user portal is required we have to use vCO or director?

I would like to clarify what we can do by using  following tools from virtual servers automatic deployment point of view

1. Powershell and Chef
2. VCO
3. Combination of 1 and 2
4. VCloud Director
5. Combination all

All items 1 to 5, will deploy VMs automatically.

It depends on cost, development time, and do you require an easy method, or Portal ?

Yes

my understanding is correct ?

1. Powershell and Chef  -----> Provide automation process of deploying virtual machines
2. VCO  -----> Providing workflow visibility for deploying virtual machines
3. Combination of 1 and 2   ------>Providing workflow to manage the automating process effectively
4. VCloud Director   -------> Providing End User Portal
5. Combination all   -------> everything
