what operations exactly are slow ? Are you listing all VM's or just
looking up the details of specific VM's ? Do you have any comparisons
between how long these operations take via Deltacloud and via the
vSphere API directly ?

Also, how do you have the various pieces deployed ? To avoid additional
network overhead, your Deltacloud server should either be running close
to your vSphere installation or close to your app in terms of network

It might well be that there are things we can do in the vSphere driver
to speed things up, but we'd need some more details.
