VMWare ESXi Hypervisor Server OS

VMWare ESXi is a Hypervisor based virtualization platform that installs on bare hardware (no host OS required) that allows running of multiple guest virtual machines simultaneously. ESXi is available freely with basic single-server functionality, but more advanced functionality requires licensing commercial versions of VMWare Infrastructure. ESXi lacks the linux based service console included with VMWare ESX, further reducing install footprint and attack surface.
