Hello Armin

Due to the additional costs that come with implementation of vCenter, would you recommend ESXi to a budding small enterprise that is not yet financially stable? Is it worthwhile?

Thank you

Which SAN is preferred over ESXi? I am using Dell Compellent so far, it seems to be fine. But I have heard people using EMC, HP. I am planning to buy one more storage. Which one do you recommend for ESXi hosts?
