vSphere Mobile Client enables administrators to monitor and manage vSphere infrastructure directly from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet).
You can find more details about it at https://flings.vmware.com/vsphere-mobile-client.
Using the client, administrators can log in to a vCenter Server and manage and monitor virtual machines, hosts and clusters. Long running tasks can also be monitored, receiving push notification upon completion.
vSphere Mobile Client brings the following capabilities to vSphere administrators on the go:
Virtual machine list with overview on resource consumption and VM details. From the VM list the user can enter the VM console or see more detailed information on the VM such as events, performance charts and also execute quick actions.
ESXi host list with overview on resource consumption and some host details like host state and uptime. From there the user can see the host details page with events and performance charts included.
Cluster list with an overview of the cluster resource consumption and configuration overview (e.g. DRS, HA and number of migrations).
Task monitoring - subscribe to any running task and receive a notification on your mobile device upon task completion, even when your device is in-active or you have another application running on the foreground.
Performance charts allow to monitor the resource usage in real time or a day, week, month or year back. Counters include CPU, Memory, Storage and Network.
NOTE: The VMware vSphere Mobile Client application has been tested on vCenter server version 6.0 (and above). Access to vSphere infrastructure may require a secure access method such as VPN on a mobile device. Contact your IT department for further assistance if needed.
This is a tech preview release and as such it only has a limited subset of the intended functionality. As we release updates with new features regularly, we are looking for feedback on what features you would like to see in the application.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This app is the best I have seen but definitely still a work in progress. Seems to be missing the ability to suspend a VM.
Needs more work
This app would be great, but, needs a lot more work doing ....
No console connection at all! Can’t change password for certificate and now on latest up date just white screen and no login or hangs logging in if I get past the white screen.
iPhone 10s with latest iOS
Well, the latest version works, but if you want to use multiple vCenters you better have the same password for every one. Add two with different passwords and it only remember the most recent password (you can display the password after login fails and see it is wrong)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
