Which VMware product best for website with media streaming

I have two Dell PE 830's (four 400 gig drives mirrored) :  There are three separate Microsoft VS 2005 R2 for three parts of single website:  
1.  Expression Engine (php,my SQL), WebBoard
2. SQL server 2005 for WebBoard
3.  Flash media server 3.5, Cold Fusion for forms

Irrspective of cost, what would be the ideal VMware product for such a simple project?

Are you looking at providing redundancy or can you afford downtime ?

Looks like the  VMware Sphere 4 makes the most sense for us right now

vmwarun - ArunCommented:
If you are intending to go for vSphere deployment, take a look at this URL - http://www.vmware.com/products/vsphere/buy/editions_comparison.html

If you do not want to spend on licensing, you can go for vSphere ESXi which is free.

But if you want to have zero downtime, then you would have to go for Advanced, Enterprise or Enterprise Licenses.

The features that enable you to have zero downtime are vMotion, DRS and Fault Tolerance.
