VMware PowerCLI is a Windows PowerShell set of modules designed to simplify, automate, the managing of VMware vSphere environments.

If you currently use PowerCLI to automate basic tasks with pre-defined scripts, you’ll already know how powerful automation can be.

However, taking the next step and customizing scripts to carry out tasks specifically designed for your needs opens a whole new world of opportunities.

This new eBook from Altaro takes you there.

Written by VMware vExpert Xavier Avrillier, this free eBook presents a use-case approach to learning how to automate tasks in vSphere environments using PowerCLI.

The book starts by covering the basics of installation, set up, and an overview of PowerCLI terms. From there it moves into scripting logic and script building with step-by-step instructions of truly useful custom scripts, including:

  • How to retrieve data on vSphere objects
  • Display VM performance metrics
  • How to build HTML reports and schedule them
  • Basics on building functions
  • And more!

Stop looking at scripts online in envy because you wish you could build your own scripts.
