I posted earlier about a vSphere 5.1 Hardening guide available in HTML or PDF, I read that they recently made a mobile version. Curiosity peaked, and I went looking for it. While looking for it, the first thing to pop up was the VMware Mobile Knowledge app. Only problem with this is that you cannot download it to iPhone or Android Phones, I guess it has something to do with formatting… I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for me as I have a 1080p screen on my phone… better than most tablets out there! But I do hear that it seems to be formatted specifically for the 10″ Android screens… I wonder if it can be side-loaded? Anyways, onto the details.
The VMware Mobile Knowledge Portal app provides access to VMware published content, and other rich media. You can use this application to watch installation videos, view helpful demos, read product whitepapers, and benefit from expert advice. We will continue to introduce new versions of videos, demos and the other product documentation right here.
