The VMware vSphere client for iPad app has now been released. The first person I noticed to mention it on twitter and with an extremely in-depth blog posting covering it all was Jason Boche (@jasonboche) in his Free VMware vSphere Client for iPad Available, even beating Scott Herrod VMware’s CTO to the punch(on the twitter announcement at least).
Jason has done such a great job covering it as has Eric Sloof in his VMware vSphere Client for iPad – Control your datacenter from the couch posting that I won’t even bother trying to cover all the features and rather just tell you to read through their blog posting like I have and will repeatedly today
The app can be downloaded from the Apple App store although a number of people are stating it doesn’t show up but John Troyer (@jtroyer) has alerted people to the fact that the “ vSphere Client for iPad can take a few hours to show up in search, but here’s the direct link: http://bit.ly/igaqQP “. I’ve already downloaded mine and hope to be doing all my vCentre work via it today so I can used to how it all works.
Have fun playing
*Update* You will need to download the vCMA to be able to use the iPad app to access your vCentre. It can be downloaded from here http://labs.vmware.com/flings/vcma and the guys from VMGuru.nl have done a great posting on how to set it all up here
