VMFS is a clustered filesystem designed to store virtual machine disks for
VMware ESX or ESXi Server hosts. This set of tools allows to access these
filesystems from some other non ESX/ESXi host for e.g. maintenance tasks.
Only read access is available at the moment, but write access is under
works. Multiple extents are supported.
The VMFS can be accessed with a command line tool or mounted through a
userspace filesystem (FUSE-based).
