As a belated Christmas present the new PowerCLI version 5.0.1 is available. This new build brings us the Cloud snapin. The availability of vCD cmdlets was already announced during VMworld 2011 and now the vCD cmdlets make their public appearance.
The first release of the Cloud snapin brings us primarily Get type cmdlets. But there is more, just as the Get-View cmdlet opened up access to the vSphere API, the new Get-CIView cmdlet, and the ExtensionData property, opens up access to all the vCD APIs.
