Previously, VMware lifecycle manager could define the operations work flow  in relation to virtual machines management like creation, deployment, modification, and decommission.
By tracking virtual machines, user request approval, automated deploy, and optimize resource, archive can be managed visually and effectively.
After VMware lifecycle was aborted, which product is taking care of the functions ?
VMware orchestrator ? or vCloud Director , or is there any product ?

VMware vCloud Request Manager replaced VMware lifecycle manager.

VMware vCloud Request Manager, sits above vCloud Director and VMware Orchestrator, in the technical architecture.

But you may also want to look at VMware Service Manager, which has a Portal, Service Desk, Change and Assest Manager, Deploy from Service Catalog.

vCloud Director.

We understandard "vCD Cells" to mean a vCD Cluster containing on or more vCD servers.

These servers are referred to as Cells, and form the basis of the VMware Cloud.
