Anyone who reads my blog will know how useful PowerCLI is for retrieving information from vCenter and easily creating complex reports, something that has historically been hard to achieve from the vSphere Client or web client.
Recently I have been looking at Cloud Physics and their offering in this area, they have a great solution which allows you to offload your data to their website and have the ability to quickly analyze it and view cards of information and potential issues you didn’t even know you had.
This blog post is not to give you an in depth view into their solution, it is purely to advise you to attend their upcoming webex where Irfan Ahmad, CTO of CloudPhysics will take you through their solution and show you some of the cool benefits of their product.
Personally I think this is a great solution and offers so many benefits for reporting and analysis of your vSphere environments.

When asked for asset reports, activity and more, you’re never more than a few clicks away from delivery. Want to find all the VMs with memory reservations or CPU limits? Looking for all VMs running Windows7? Want to find all hosts connected to a datastore? You can do all that and much more without any code or scripts. And no need to learn intricate APIs.
In addition to best practices and secrets to amazing mashups, you’ll learn to:
* Create easy, visual reports for your vSphere environment
* Run mashups across VMs, hosts, datastores, networks, resource pools, VDS, even vCenters
