The "vCenter Mobile Access" tool, as it is currently being called, will allow administrators remote access and management of virtual machines, performing such tasks as migration and recovery through a mobile phone."Imagine any scenario where you need to actively manage your datacenter but you are nowhere close to a PC," wrote Vmware director of product management and market development Srinivas Krishnamurti."Wouldn’t it be nice to act on the notification from your mobile phone? After all, we are now a generation that doesn’t leave home without a mobile phone." Krishnamurti said that the first test versions of the new software will be publically available for download next month.In order to manage the service, administrators will also need to set up virtual server to manage the mobile access components. That server will in turn be connected to the virtualisation servers.Among the features which will be available to administrators on the handset will be ability to search virtual machines, migrate virtual machines between host systems and run recovery operations remotely.The new tool will be part of the company's ongoing work with mobile phones. Last November VMware announced that it would begin a large scale project known as the Mobile Virtualisation Platform to bring its virtualization technology to smartphones.
