I sure hope the iPhone is ready for the enterprise! VMware CTO, Stephen Herrod, just announced at VMworld that a new version of VMware Infrastructure Client was being developed for the iPhone and “other mobile devices”. This software allows an administrator to manage virtual machines hosted on VirtualCenter servers.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been using apps like pTerm (SSH), Remote Desktop (RDP), and Mocha (VNC) to manage my network devices. Throw in VI Client and you have a formidable mobile management device!
I’m glad I wasn’t the only one thinking of keen uses for the accelerometer in system management…
