Thanks to Eric Sloof for linking to the new free Fling available at the VMware Labs website. The tool called View Pool Manager is a development from Andre Leibovici who’s well known for his blog myvirtualcloud.net. The tools allows you to manage a few tasks around the VMware View Pool management. The View Pool Manager can help you to save time, maybe a few hours a week. Try it!

Following to my post from last week regarding Mike Lavericks and Barry Coombs new End User Computing book I’d like to share two links with you. Follow these links and you’ll get two free chapters from the new book. One is about ThinApp Factory, an appliance which helps you to automate your application virtualization processes and the other is about VMware’s Horizon Application Manager.

Today Adam Gross, a engineer at VMware’s Enterprise Desktop Group has published a new version of Boomerang. Boomerang is a free software tool available at the VMware Labs. With this Fling you get a simple client application that allows you to use multiple vSphere servers simultaneously. When opening the client just hit “Add a Server…” to connect to a ESX, vCenter or View Connection Server and you’ll be presented with all virtual machines.
For View you are able to use RDP and PCoIP as remote protocol for your desktop. Once you have launched a virtual desktop, you will have a functional remote desktop experience that matches the View Windows Client.
Here’re some features:
Note: You are not able to connect to the free ESXi server.
