Latest Fling from #VMware Labs – ESXi Embedded Host Client

This version of the ESXi Embedded Host Client is written purely in HTML and JavaScript, and is served directly from your ESXi host and should perform much better than any of the existing solutions.

Please note that the Host Client cannot be used to manage vCenter. Currently, the client is in its development phase, but is releasing this Fling to elicit early feedback from their users to help guide the development and user experience that they are creating. As such, the client is not fully featured and only implements a hand full of the most important features. Some of these include:

  • VM operations (Power on, off, reset, suspend, etc).
  • Creating a new VM, from scratch or from OVF/OVA (limited OVA support)
  • Configuring NTP on a host
  • Displaying summaries, events, tasks and notifications/alerts
  • Providing a console to VMs
  • Configuring host networking
  • Configuring host advanced settings
  • Configuring host services
