VMware has released the brand new vSphere iPad client which is now available on iTunes. With that app you can control the virtual machines in your datacenter and view key performance metrics. The client is not a full replacement for the vSphere Windows client but you can do a lot of tasks with it. Eric Sloof wrote a nice article about it which is a good read.

The View Client for the iPad was released last week by VMware with a huge buzz on all social media platforms. I’ve had the chance to test it in several circumstances and I’m really happy. It works pretty well and the PCoIP performance was always good enough to watch video streams or just work with my virtual desktop hosted at Terremark.. Today I’ve checked the VGA Out option for the first time. This is just awesome! The iPad screen is mirrored on the monitor and gives you the opportunity to give Powerpoint presentations from your virtual desktops running in the datacenter. Unfortunately I’ve no iPad with 3G option what means that I’ve a huge demand for an iPad 2.

Three weeks ago I bought an iPad and of course it’s an expensive gadget but I’m using it more and more in my business day. The Wyse Pocket Cloud application is just one example of great apps which are available for the iPad. Today I used the Cisco WebEx app for iPad for the first time and I’m really impressed to be honest. Normally I’m using WebEx on my Mac but what annoys me is the fullscreen mode which is automatically started when the applications starts up. Then you can only hardly change to Outlook or other applications during a running WebEx session. Using WebEx on the iPad is cool because you can just work on your computer as usual and the display is big enough to show the presentation. A great feature is the call-back function where the WebEx systems needs your phone number and then gives you a call back. In this case your name is shown in the WebEx when you are talking. Just great, love it!
