What is VMware ESXi?

VMware ESXi is a bare metal hypervisor. Also known as a Type 1 hypervisor, bare metal hypervisors run directly on a computer system, with individual operating systems running on the virtual machines (VMs) that it manages.

When using ESXi, you utilize its virtualization layer to abstract the resources of host machines, such as storage, memory and CPU, so that individual VMs can access them without having direct access to the physical hardware.

ESXi supports advanced chips from both Intel and AMD, such as Xeon and Opteron. On each host, it can support up to 4,096 virtual processors, 320 logical CPUs, 512 VMs and 4 TB of RAM. It does all this with a footprint of only 150 MB.

With ESXi, you can consolidate your hardware, increase the performance of it, reduce your capital expenditures and operating expenses, and minimize the hardware requirements that are typically required to run a hypervisor.
