Since I have changed my Palm Treo cell phone for an Android powered device, I have entered a new dimension. One of the coolest aspects is the Application Market. Please do not bash me, I know there are other excellent products like the iPhone. Now and then I browse the Android Market with the search term “vmware”. In most cases the results are Apps for the VCP exam preparation, but today there is a new App named VirtualViewer.
VirtualViewer is created by Steffmeister Software, the project page is here, at this moment the software can be downloaded for free.
The current version 1.0-4 supports vCenter 4 (and some ESX/ESXi 4.0/4.1 support). After logging in to the vCenter server, there are the following menu options:
- Inventory, browse the Datacenter, see the VMs, basic info and status (running or not);
- Alarms, show active alarms with state and description
- Sessions, show active sessions on the vCenter or host
- About and Quit
The creator encourages you to download the application and feedback is appreciated.
