The difference between ESX 3.5 and ESX 4 is substantially the arch they use. ESX 3.5 is x86 based (32bit) while ESX 4 is based on x86_64 (64bit). At least ESX 4 is the newer version that fits into the VMware vSphere environment, the older ESX 3.x products are part of the VMware Virtual Infrastructure (VI).

vmware ESX is an enterprise-level computer virtualization product offered by vmware, inc. ESX is a component of vmware's larger offering, Vmware Infrastructure, and adds management and reliability services to the core server product. Vmware is replacing the original ESX with ESX.

VMware ESX allows system administrators to free up server resources so that they may be allocated for other purposes. VMware ESX also reduces costs of operations.

It appears that the best place to purchase VMware ESX, along with the rest of the VMware software suite, is the vmware website. There you can purchse the software for immediate download to your computer.

VMware was the first company to start virtualizing the x86 architecture VMware's software runs on Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, while its enterprise software hypervisors for servers, VMware ESX and VMware ESXi, are bare-metal hypervisors that run directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.

One can find documentation on VMWare ESX Servers off of the VMWare website. There are many kinds of documentation available, including guides and more.

One can find a guide for VMWare ESX vShpere 4 on the VMWare website. The VMWare website offers VMWare vSphere documentation. Here one will find these editions are organized by server type.

Enterprise Server X.....From VMWare...

right click on the ESX go to settings there you can find maximum memory for the esx. On that esx if you install VMs then you can use the memory available to you for VM.

Yes, a VMWare Infrastructure Client license is included with all copies of ESX Server.

The VMWare ESX information center helps a customer understand, upgrade and find answers to questions surrounding datacenter products that the company sells. The information center will help best with the products operations management.

vcenter server is used to manage all VMs and esx machines on the network of company!!! go for more information

it helps one to make a lab and get a feel how the machine,vcenter esx will function in production environment and any test could be done .It could be installed on windows machine and used.

ESXReplicator is a software that acts as a real-time replication solution for the VMware ESX server environment. It allows one to perform specific replication jobs on the net.

thats is VI client used for accessing the vcenter server which has all the VMs and esx boxes and you can manage with them. Viclient is the user interface to login to vcenter server.

Type-1, native or bare-metal hypervisors. These are the main software operating on the host computer. All the computer does is run the hypervisor - of course with the virtual machines then running on top of that. Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESX/ESXi are examples of a "type-1" hypervisor. Type-2 or hosted hypervisors. These run a base OS like Windows or Linux with a hypervisor application running on top of that. The virtual machines run on top of the hypervisor application. VMware Workstation, and VirtualBox are examples of a "type-2" hypervisor.

yes you can use the physical PC if they are not in the same network.i.e when you have imported the physical pc to another esx or VM workstation.convert physical to can use the machine but with different name /network

Yes/No That answer is no because VMware's main product is a hypervisor called ESXI, this Linux-based operating system is directly installed to the computer, it then hosts other virtual computers and servers, and serves them up to the users. But the answer is also yes because VMware's main product can also be installed as a virtual machine on top of VMware's ESXI server, so it's up to the administrator whether or not it becomes a virtual server or a server that serves up virtual machines. The reason why VMware's ESX would be made into a virtual machine would be for development and experimental environments before initiating a full production environment, this is standard practice to iron out any bugs that may occur.

easy administration low hardware cost full utilization of resources To use the full features of VMware you need atleat 2 esx boxs on which VM (DCs) can be hosted it will increase availability, Fault tolerance for the DCs.but on one PC above three reasons are enough

Both VMware's ESX Server 3.5 and Microsoft's Hyper-V are built using a hypervisorbased architecture. This architecture gives both platforms bare-metal performance that significantly outperforms older hosted virtualization products such as Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 and VMware's Virtual Server 2.0. Hosted virtualization products run the virtualization software on top of the host OS, which introduces additional overhead and a longer code execution path for the virtual machines (VMs) that run in the hosted virtualization environment. In contrast, hypervisor-based products such as ESX Server and Hyper-V are designed to run the hypervisor directly on the system hardware. Although ESX Server and Hyper-V both share a similar hypervisor-based architecture, there are significant differences in the way the products are designed. In both cases, the hypervisor runs directly on the system hardware. However, with ESX Server the hardware drivers are all part of the hypervisor, which significantly increases the size of the hypervisor. In addition, the device drivers are created by the hardware vendors, which introduces third-party code into the hypervisor and limits the hardware that ESX Server supports. Even so, ESX Server is supported on most of the server systems made by all the tier-one vendors, such as HP, Dell, and IBM. Many of these vendors also sell systems configurations with VMware ESX Server preloaded.

Technically 10 on VMWare Workstation - VMNet0 to VMNet9. However, VMNet0 is usually used for bridged networking, VMNet1 is usually used for host-only networking, and VMNet8 is usually used for NAT networking, so you actually have only 7 virtual switches for exclusive virtual machine to virtual machine networking. ESX Server may be different, however, as it supports the use of virtual routers and such, making things much more complicated.

"Several schools offer the course online for a fee, as well as IT training schools offline. You can purchase training through resellers as well to save a little money on the course. Classes are offered through the company's website in various formats, so choose the one that works best for you."

ESX is extremely efficient regarding security. Full protection will be achieved once proper procedures are completed. Full requirements must be achieved in order to obtain proper efficiencies.

There's a new component that is part of vMotion which is only enabled with Enterprise Plus and that components is what we call 'Metro vMotion'. This feature enables you to safely vMotion a virtual machine across a link of up to 10 miliseconds RTT. In the case of vMotion the standard socket buffer size is around 0.5MB. Assuming a 1GbE network (or 125MBps) then bandwidth delay product dictates that we could support roughly 5ms RTT delay without a noticeable bandwidth impact. With the "Metro vMotion" feature, we'll dynamically resize the socket buffers based on the observed RTT over the vMotion network. So, if you have 10ms delay, the socket buffers will be resized to 1.25MB, allowing full 125MBps throughput. Without "Metro vMotion", over the same 10ms link, you would get around 50MBps throughput In vSphere 4.1, vMotion is supported only when the latency between the source and destination ESXi/ESX hosts is less than 5 ms RTT (round-trip time).For higher latencies, not all workloads are guaranteed to converge In vSphere 4.1, vMotion is supported only when the latency between the source and destination ESXi/ESX hosts is less than 5 ms RTT (round-trip time).For higher latencies, not all workloads are guaranteed to converge. With Metro vMotion in vSphere 5.0, vMotion can be used to move a running virtual machine when the source and destination ESX hosts have a latency of more than 5ms RTT. The maximum supported round trip time latency between the two hosts is now 10ms. Metro vMotion is only available with vSphere Enterprise Plus license
