Can ESXi benefit from all Vi3 features, ie vmotion, DRS and HA?

If so what licensing do I need to implement this?

Also, when you evaluate Vi3 (ESX3.5 and VC 2.5) do you need to point the ESX hosts at the license server? I have read that you do not need to do this to evaluate all features, however I dont understand how you can evaluate vmotion etc if you do not point at a license server as these enterprise features require VC and thus a centralised license server.
