VMware Labs is VMware’s home for collaboration. They see collaboration as the information exchange that takes place internally and externally. On this site you can play around with the latest innovations coming out of VMware and share feedback and ideas directly with their engineers. VMware Labs is also the place where VMware engineers can share their cool and useful tools with you. With this in mind, Labs is made up of the following components:
VMware’s engineers work on tons of pet projects in their spare time, and are always looking to get feedback on their projects (or “flings”). Why flings? A fling is a short-term thing, not a serious relationship but a fun one. Likewise, the tools that are offered here are intended to be played with and explored. None of them are guaranteed to become part of any future product offering and there is no support for them. They are, however, totally free for you to download and play around with them!
