Python API to interact with the vSphere Web Services SDK.

This python SDK provides an easy interface to:

  • Connect to VMWare's ESX, ESXi, Virtual Center, Virtual Server hosts
  • Query hosts, datacenters, resource pools, virtual machines
  • VM: Power on, power off, reset, revert to snapshot, get properties, update vmware tools, clone, migrate.
  • vSphere 5.0 Guest Operations: create/delete/move files and directories. Upload/download files from the guest system. List/start/stop processes in the guest system.
  • Create and delete snapshots
  • Hosts statistics and performance monitoring

And of course, you can use it to access all of the vSphere API through python.
