PXE Manager for vCenter

Neat tool to automate and provision new ESXi hosts.

Little bird tells me this feature set will be included in VSphere 5.0

PXE Manager for vCenter enables ESXi host state (firmware) management and provisioning. Specifically, it allows:

  • Automated provisioning of new ESXi hosts stateless and stateful (no ESX)
  • ESXi host state (firmware) backup, restore, and archiving with retention
  • ESXi builds repository management (stateless and statefull)
  • ESXi Patch management
  • Multi vCenter support
  • Multi network support with agents (Linux CentOS virtual appliance will be available later)
  • Wake on Lan
  • Hosts memtest
  • vCenter plugin
  • Deploy directly to VMware Cloud Director
  • Deploy to Cisco UCS blades
