Ops Panel for ESX
Ops Panel for ESX runs on the client browser and extends the default ESX server web page with a short list of all available virtual machines.
VIX Java Toolkit
The VIX Java Toolkit allows Java developers to take advantage of the VMware VIX API. This is a powerful API that allows for performing in-guest operations on VMs running with vSphere, Workstation, Server, and Player.
VMware Auto Deploy
VMware Auto Deploy supports automatic PXE boot and customization of large numbers of ESXi systems. Auto Deploy allows rapid deployment and configuration of a large number of ESXi hosts.

DynamoRIO is a runtime code manipulation system that supports code transformations on any part of a program, while it executes. DynamoRIO gives complete control over the runtime code stream and does not limit transformations to trampoline insertion.
Virtual USB Analyzer
We developed vusb-analyzer at VMware as an efficient way to debug our own USB virtualization stack. We wanted a tool that made it easy to see problems at a glance, and we wanted a way to solve both correctness and performance bugs. As a result, we ended up with what we think is a fairly unique tool. We're excited to have the opportunity now to release this tool as open source software, under the MIT license.
