I had a couple of people lately surprised at how much I could use my iPad so I though I should share how I use it in case it helps someone. It is the iPad Pro 10.5 with the latest iPadOS on it.
I have an Apple Keyboard so that means I can type pretty well on the iPad. I take notes in Evernote in meetings, and work in Slack too as it is a big tool inside my employer.
I have the Office apps on my iPad and they work pretty darn good. Here is Word.
But I can do demo’s as well. Thanks to VMware’s excellent iPad View client, I connect to my Home lab.
And of course that means vCenter and the NetApp vCenter Plug-in are right there.
So that is a lot of stuff I can do on my iPad. But what doesn’t work so good? When I am doing a new presentation I like bigger screens and several of them to get things done easy. Also, bigger docs, that are long and lots of screenshots are a bit easier on a big screen with a big keyboard.
But I love how powerful my iPad is and how many things it can do well. It really means I do not have to drag my laptop around at HQ.
If you want to learn more about the apps I use, or whatever, just let me know.

what is the app you using in ipad to connect your home lab?
I use VMware Horizon View to connect to my lab. Works very well using a web browser, iPad, Mac or PC.
Have you seen this? This guys uses a RPi 4 as a companion of his iPad
Thanks for sharing this, it was very interesting. Amazing in fact.
Happy New Year,
