It includes .Net libraries for accessing features available via the vSphere REST API including Virtual Machine management, vCenter Appliance management, Content Library and Tagging. The SDK contains samples for the features mentioned above including how to interoperate with vSphere APIs. For more information on the vSphere Web Services API samples, please refer to the vSphere Management SDK.
