VMware vCenter Mobile Access (VMware vCMA)

VMware vCenter Mobile Access (VMware vCMA) is a virtual appliance used by administrators to manage a data center from a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. 

vCMA, which is the required backend for the vSphere Client for iPad, allows administrators to perform management, monitoring or troubleshooting activities in their VMware environments from anywhere in the world. The vCMA is an unsupported fling, but there is a community forum dedicated to vCMA and vSphere Client for iPad. Users can post questions and receive unofficial support from VMware employees and other users.

Users can download the most recent copy of vCMA from the VMware Labs website. It's available as either an Open Virtualization Format (OVF) file that can be imported into vCenter Server, or as a zipped file with the virtual machine (VM) already deployed.
