VMware vSphere Hypervisor Comments

Want to give limited user access to some VMs - not your whole vCenter?

Positive Comment by ZPEKen
about VMware vSphere Hypervisor and NodeGrid Manager Oct 2014

VMware vSphere is a great product - virtualization is changing IT in many good ways. One place where we can supplement this virtual IT evolution is in managing VM user access. Let's say you have 100 VMs and want to give someone lab or work access to control one or two VMs, but don't need this person to have full vCenter access.

Shameless plug: We have an app for that. NodeGrid Manager can provide limited user access to particular VMs.

This was nice until I hit the vCPU limits, then became useless, since Enterprise licensing is prohibitively expensive.
