DoubleCloud ICE: the IDE for Managing Clouds

March 30th, 2015 6 comments

After almost one year of intensive development, I am happy to announce the first release of DoubleCloud ICE. It’s an integrated tool for cloud management, in particular VMware vSphere with which you can do a lot of interactions easily and quickly.

The idea was inspired by the IDEs. Once upon a time, we all used editors like vi, Emacs to write code, then compile, link, and debug them using command lines. As time evolved, the IDE came out so we can do all these tasks (actually more) nicely and efficiently in one application. The result? Better user experience and higher productivity.

I think you probably know better than I do so I skip this part.
