Configuration Once you’ve installed or imported your virtual machines, you’ll need to configure them. This Getting Started demo will walk you through the process. • Need support?

Hi, are there any limitations to ESXi considering it is free? I’m thinking of virtualizing our servers on the hardware level and not on the os level and want to start with a stable virtualization company and product. However I’m worried not knowing the limitations before setting up ESXi. I will be virualizing a server to run 4-5 applications (or even more in the future) for the purpose of consolidation/easy IT management, security and isolation, high-availability and future RnDs for future services without impacting existing applications.
