We imagine that many of you have been waiting eagerly for this moment when we announce the grand prize winner of our first Open Innovation Contest.
Apache Pivot is a platform for building rich internet applications in Java. It combines the enhanced productivity and usability features of a modern RIA toolkit with the robustness of the industry-standard Java platform.
Application View for vCenter Site Recovery Manager shows the application dependencies between virtual machines in a disaster recovery site. This tool is packaged as a standalone virtual appliance, which can be easily set up in an environment which runs vCenter, vCenter Site Recovery Manager, and vCenter Infrastructure Navigator.
Auto Deploy GUI is a front end interface to the Auto Deploy/Stateless infrastructure.
This Fling lets you deploy Big Data Extensions on vSphere Standard Edition for the purpose of experimentation and proof-of-concept projects to explore the potential of running Hadoop in a virtualized environment.
VMware Boomerang is a radically simple client application that allows you to use multiple vSphere servers simultaneously.
The plugin is general enough to support other CIM compliant services and is not limited only to ESX. However the primary goal for developing the plugin was to expose ESX CIMOM in the vCenter Orchestrator. This affected the API design.
vCloud Director (vCD for short) relies heavily on the vCenter Servers and host machines it uses. And there may be times when you want to “uninstall” all traces of vCD from your servers and machines. CloudCleaner is a free product that helps restore these systems to a clean state. It selectively (or completely) removes all vCD-created virtual machines, resource pools, network pools, and networks. It can also unprepare hosts that have been prepared by vCD.
CloudFS is a prototype replicated and distributed storage system for the VMware ESX platform. It allows VMs to run using local storage, without any single points of failure.
VMware vCenter has provided sophisticated resource management controls (to set resource reservations, limits, shares, etc.) for virtual machines since vCenter 2.0.
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.
The ESX System Analyzer is a tool designed to help administrators plan a migration from ESX to ESXi.
Google Authenticator is a project that provides two-factor authentication by using both a PAM (Pluggable Authentication Module) module and a mobile application for generating one-time passcodes. In ESXi Google Authenticator, we modified the source code of Google-Authenticator to enable two-step authentication on ESXi (5.0, 5.1).
The software runs on Linux systems, and generates timeseries graphs for selected esxtop fields (as png graphs). The software will also generate simple statistical measures including mean and standard variation for selected esxtop fields.
gemcached is a memcached server written in Java that understands memcached’s ASCII protocol and translates it into GemFire operations.
GuestReclaim reclaims dead space from NTFS volumes hosted on a thin provisioned SCSI disk. The tool can also reclaim space from full disks and partitions, thereby wiping off the file systems on it. As the tool deals with active data, please take all precautionary measures understanding the SCSI UNMAP framework and backing up important data.
The Horizon View Configuration Tool automates Horizon View 5.3 installation and deployment. It removes the complexities and manual steps required for setting up a basic Horizon View deployment.
I/O Analyzer is a virtual appliance solution for storage performance measurement for large scale ESX clusters deployment.
InventorySnapshot allows a user to “snapshot” a given vCenter inventory configuration and then reproduce it.
