#vSphere Thick Client End of Life – A Look at the HTML 5 Client Fling #h5client
On May 18th VMware announced the end of the road for the C# vSphere Thick Client. The next version of vSphere-the thick client-will not be available. VMware has been building up to this moment and previously announced they wanted to move to a web based client to have maximum comparability and mobility. The current versions of the vSphere thick client will remain supported (5.5, 6.0) until their end of life cycle. So what does the future look like for the vSphere Client? VMware will keep the existing Flash web client and introduce the HTML5 based vSphere Client. The Flash web client will remain so third party developers can migrate their plugins over to the long term HTML5 client.

Customizing the ESXi DCUI to show number of VMs – virtuallyGhetto
Last week there was a question that was posted internally asking if it was possible to customize the ESXi DCUI screen to include the number of Virtual Machines? Although there is nothing out of the box, you can in fact add add almost anything to the DCUI screen by modifying the /etc/vmware/welcome configuration file which I had blogged about several years back on adding a splash of color to the ESXi DCUI. There was even a recent VMware Fling that provides a VIB that applies a variety of DoD STIG implementations, one of which was to update the DCUI screen with some specific text.
