Can you rate this product on a scale of 1-10 based on your experience using it?

@tina5saga........I would rate 8 out of 10 for ESXi. I have used Oracle VM and Xen too. I have found ESXi most interesting........

@Kapilmalik - That's some good rating there. ESXi deserves it. What, according to your opinion (based on your personal experience using the products) makes ESXi more interesting than either the Oracle VM or Xen?

I'll weigh in here. Oracle VM and Xen are good products, but when compared to these and other hypervisors on the market, ESXi requires a lot less cumbersome to manage. The simplicity of it is without question. The ease of administration is very good. And I live in the performance world, and I find that the scalability and raw performance overhead of ESXi versus everyone else still is the best.
