SimDK – A VMware vSphere Simulator

Just got the following email from Andrew Kutz (@sakutz) who wrote the famous VMware Infrastructure (VI) plug-ins whitepaper and created several other great projects like VMM.

David Marshall, Dave McCrory and I, as well as everyone else at Hyper9, are extraordinarily proud to announce SimDK – a VMware vSphere4 simulator which provides vSphere4 API-compatibility for official vSphere4 clients and other applications built using the vSphere4 SDK.. SimDK isĀ an open source project available at http://simdk.sourceforge.net/. You can read more about this exciting announcement at http://akutz.wordpress.com/2010/03/09/simdk.
