• VMware server vs. ESXi

    This is more of a general question I'm looking for the top differences between VMware server and ESXi. Essentially, I'm trying to run a virtual server in the background, as a daemon (Linux OS). Which one would be better?

  • I am using ESXi and got four machines onto that. Now I want to shift only one virtual machine to client. How?

    Suppose I have four virtual machines onto ESXi. Now from those machines, I want to give one machine to my client so that he can manage it in there own way( installation of OS,etc ). Like in vSphere all machines(complete ESXi) are shifted but I want it restricted.
