> from Sean 
> This module is designed to work against VirtualCenter/vCenter, but should be 
> able to work directly with an ESX host as well.  It works a little 
> differently from the existing ESX modules in that it uses the VMware perl API 
> directly instead of calling the helper apps.  In addition, it also greatly 
> reduces the amount of disk space and deployment time necessary.
> Instead of cloning the VM for deployment, this module uses ESX to create a 
> snapshot of the golden image disk, and uses that for the deployed VM.  This 
> means the only disk space used for the deployed VM is the differences between 
> it and the master.  Likewise, no time is needed to copy all the bits, so 
> creating the VM takes seconds instead of minutes.
