What is VMware ESXi?
VMware ESXi is VMware's most recent Hypervisor architecture. This new and improved product has the same key functionality and performance capabilities as its predecessor but with some major improvements, specifically its ultra-thin architecture and small footprint. Another key benefit of VMware ESXi is that, with its automated configurations and menu-driven startup, it is simple to deploy and manage. Your VMware ESXi virtualization solution can be up and running in a matter of minutes.
VMware ESXi is even more secure, stable and reliable than the previous version, ESX, and many competitors because it has a small code base, which means less code to patch and a smaller surface to be 'attacked'
With VMWare ESXi, organizations can virtualize their servers and centralize their applications, with less hardware required. Being OS-independent, VMware ESXi supports Windows and Linux operating systems.
