VMware ESX and VMware ESXi provide the foundation for building a reliable and dynamic IT infrastructure. These market- leading, production-proven hypervisors abstract processor, memory, storage and networking resources into multiple virtual machines that each can run an unmodified operating system and applications. VMware ESX and ESXi are the most widely deployed hypervisors, delivering the highest levels of reliability and performance to companies of all sizes.
VMware ESXi is the latest hypervisor architecture from VMware. It has an ultra-thin architecture with no reliance on a general- purpose OS, yet still offers all the same functionality and performance of VMware ESX. VMware ESXi sets a new bar for security and reliability because its smaller code base represents a smaller “attack surface” with less code to patch. This small footprint and hardware-like reliability also enable VMware ESXi to be built directly into industry standard x86 servers from leading server manufacturers such as Dell, IBM, HP, and Fujitsu- Siemens. VMware ESXi was designed with simplicity in mind. Its menu-driven startup and automatic configurations make it the easiest way to get started with VMware virtualization.
