Virtualization EcoShell

I’ve started looking at the recently released beta of Vizioncore’s Virtualization EcoShell, which is a VMware tailored version of PowerGUI.

Both are GUI front-ends for (among other things) VMware’s Powershell based VI Toolkit, which I’ve talked about before.

I never got the full benefit from PowerGui, as by the time I’d realised there was more to it than the (very good) script editor, I’d already developed a lot of the scripts I needed – scripts which PowerGui would have been able to generate for me a lot more quickly (c’est la vie).

EcoShell has the ability to export some nice looking reports (although the Visio based vDiagram functionality still doesn’t work for me).

There’s more information on EcoShell over at Virtua-Al.
