VMware vSphere Management Tools

All I can say is “Whew!”. I am definitely looking forward to this.

So I am hoping to test some new products.


  1. What free tools the vendor offers?
  2. Capacity Management
  3. Reporting (Access and Automation)
  4. Monitoring
  5. Other Features
  6. Overall Cost (Licensing Model)

(NOTE: The order is not specific to favorites or a product being the best. Also noted are the free tool they offer)

  1. vKernel – vScope
  2. Veeam One – Monitoring and Reporting)
  3. VMTurbo – Community edition
  4. Solarwinds – VM Monitor

Again, if you may know of any other products drop me a line and I see if we can add them to the list. There will be a review, rating, and follow up after testing and working with the products.
