Re: System requirements for VMware ESXi server

VMware ESXi is an enterprise-class hypervisor that offers a bare-metal architecture for near-native performance, features like memory de-duplication to increase consolidation ratios and a cluster file system for managing VM files on shared storage. VMware ESXi and VMware ESX are the critical foundations for a dynamic and flexible virtual infrastructure.The standalone version of VMware ESXi is certified on hardware listed in the hardware compatibility list (HCL).

Re: System requirements for VMware ESXi server

VMware ESXi has the same functionality as VMware ESX, but with a 32 MB disk footprint. It also has the ability to upgrade to VMware Infrastructure 3. There are two variations of ESXi, Installable and Embedded.With free ESXi the max number of 'vCPUs' you can assign to your Guest is 4 whereas if you have an Enterprise plus licence, your VM can have 8vCPUs and The maximum number of CPUs the free version of ESXi can use is the same for purchased versions - that is 32 cores.
