Introduction To VMware ESXi
Today's Enterprise server and desktop environments have undergone drastic changes in the last ten years. No longer is it necessary to spend tens of thousands of dollars on big physical servers to meet the email, file, web and database needs of an organization. You will often find that old desktop equipment is being repurposed as personal kiosks accessing virtual company desktop environments. What makes all of this possible is virtualization.
