I would imagine for most of us .... no we don't have a clue. Shocked Where as some of us are certainly techies vmware esx is a pretty specialized need. I'm familiar with vmware (ie what it is/does) but what's the "esx" implementation ?

I looked it up quick, but didn't read to far into it. I think it lets you run a vm without a host O/S. I'll have to look into it more, but I think it's outside my area of need. I've been playing around with regular vms a bit, but it's more of a geek toy for me.

Vmware ESX is one of the vmware family producs:
vmware player (free)
vmware workstation (licensed)
vmware server (gsx) (free)
vmware esx (licensed)

top 3 producs run on windows or linux. ESX is its own lightweight unix-based OS that hosts the entire vmware environement. Its meant for corporate or high efficiency need. The requirements are that you run it on one of their certified systems or build a system which meets the guides of the IO HCL.

I'm considering getting a used poweredge from ebay and play around with a ESX implementation. As an end result i would eventually like to consolidate my server environment for our internal and development systems.
