VMware renames vCloud Service Director, bundles it with vCenter Chargeback and vShield Edge

Just before the VMworld 2010 opening keynote, cloudcomputing.info received a couple of confirmations that VMware is about to rename its not-yet-launched vCloud Service Director (vCSD) in just vCloud Director. This would explain why the VMworld content catalog doesn’t show anymore the breakout sessions about vCSD.

On top of that, the company may be preparing a special bundle to launch version 1.0, including vCenter Chargeback and the new vShield Edge with it.
Our source reports that the bundle will feature the new per-VM licensing, starting with a 25 VMs pack.

The platform should be available on Sep. 1st.
