Last year the Virtually Speaking Podcast took an informal survey of the top 10 VMware admin tools and discussed the results on Episode 108. We invited VMware’s Duncan Epping and William Lam to share their input on the tools as well as their personal favorites. The episode was pretty popular, securing the #1 most downloaded episode of 2019 as well as the #2 most downloaded of all time. Take a look at Top 10 VMware Admin Tools of 2019.

As a recap here are last year’s top 10:
