A couple of weeks ago, a colleague of mine pointed me at this site (thanks Raphael):
They are a start-up software company who are building a “hypervisor-agnostic and cross-platform” virtualization management application.
I just received my beta key and have been having a quick look. Its built on Adobe AIR and has a very fluid map model to move around the virtualization components.
You can see some screenshots here:
It certainly looks very promising, as it is a free, open-source and can manage multiple ESX hosts without the need for VirtualCenter. The maps are beautiful. Combine this with a free ESXi license or two and you have a great solution for companies with no virtualization budget.
However I have one small bit of feedback for this new company. They are branding everything around the bear nomenclature. It is selling a small form factor server under the brand Koala. As a “naturalised” Australian, I have to point out to my American software friends that Koalas are not part of the bear family as any fair dinkum true blue Aussie would know.
