It’s time to have a Fling

I was teaching a VMware ICM course last week and we started talking about Auto Deploy (a technology to stream the ESXi Operating System straight into RAM, so diskless hosts), and I mentioned that for myself, the greatest downfall for this technology is that I can’t type and I hate command line (the technology is controlled by a Power Shell interface). I used to be a hardware / networking engineer, so I prefer screwdrivers and hammers.

I then decided to share with my delegates the wonder of the VMware Labs website and in particular the “Flings” section at the following http://labs.vmware.com/flings

To quote the website exactly

“A fling is a short-term thing, not a serious relationship but a fun one. Likewise, the tools that are offered here are intended to be played with and explored.”

The point of showing this website was to show my delegates the wonderful Auto Deploy GUI developed by Massimiliano Daneri. He has also included a superb manual that allows everyone to easily use his product.
