Vmware ESXi

Runs directly on your hardware
It is “the operating system”
Talks directly to your hardware including NIC and storage controller

Requirements :
64-Bit CPU with Inter VT or AMD-v enable
2098 MB of RAM is the minimum but likely you’ll want 8GB+
Gig-E or 10 Gig-Ethernet controller

What happened to ESX Server ? Is it obsolete..

ESX Server ha been deprecated/discontinued

qRedhat Linux-based service console required more frequent updates and had a larger attack surface
qMaintaining two platforms didn’t make senses
qTook longer to install and boot
qUsed more resources

  ESXi type-1 hypervisor
qLess updates
qMore Secure
qStill has a very thin local CLI
qLoads and installs super-fast
qPerforms all the advanced features of ESX
