[Openstack] VMware VCDdriver without vCenter

It was discussed at the recent summit to deprecate the ESX driver. In Icehouse there was a deprecation warning added to the code - https://github.com/openstack/nova/blob/master/nova/virt/vmwareapi/driver.py#L103
We need to discuss how we are going to do the migration path.
Please note that the VC driver only works if you have a vCenter (which interfaces with one or more ESX's).

Subject: [Openstack] VMware VCDdriver without vCenter

Hello everyone,

I have read that ESXdriver will disappear in Openstack Juno version. If I have only one ESXI with no vCenter server, will I be able to use the Openstack VCDdriver?

Thanks beforehand.
