Along with smaller companies, I have found lot of bigger companies has moved to ESXi Virtualization to reduce their cost resources and increased availablility.

Most small businesses try as much as possible to save any penny they can. However, if many of such businesses have implemented ESXi virtualization program irrespective of the additional expenses that come with purchasing vCenter then it is indeed an excellent software with vast benefits for such corporations.
