Vote for vSphere Java API at VMware Labs

Several smart bloggers (Eric Sloof, Justin EmersonIan Koenig, Alessandro Perilli) discovered the VMware Labs web site over the weekend. As many pointed out, it’s absolutely cool.

I actually knew it was going to be online this past weekend, but would like to get official announcement from the company before blogging it. The reason I knew the site to go live is because the vSphere Java API I created is one of the first 10 projects.

Bothered by SLOW Web UI to manage vSphere? Want to manage ALL your VMware vCenters, AWS, Azure, Openstack, container behind a SINGLE pane of glass? Want to search, analyze, report, visualize VMs, hosts, networks, datastores, events as easily as Google the Web? Find out more about vSearch 3.0: the search engine for all your private and public clouds.

As expected, all the projects there are not products, therefore not officially supported. But it’s a great way for the company especially R&D team to know what user and developer communities like. So it’s important to exercise your influence by voting for the projects you like. If many folks like a particular project, it’s possible that the project becomes a product officially supported by the company in the future.

Since you are reading this blog, I assume you likely use vSphere Java API directly or indirectly. Please take a moment to vote 5 star for vSphere Java API here.

    I agree the Flings site is absolutely cool. They have made download so simple, I have been using vSphere Java API and was glad to see it part of the initial Flings. Will be glad to vote for it. Thanks
