pyVirtualize provides easy interfaces to:

- Connect to VMWare's ESX, ESXi, Virtual Center, Virtual Server hosts and View Connnection server.
- Query hosts, datacenters, resource pools, virtual machines and perform various operations over them.

An of course, you can use it to access all the API through python.
