Hello All,

May I know what is your opinion and story in going live in production with ESX 4 instead of ESXi 4.0 ?

At the moment I'm stuck with my backup plan which is I'm looking/considering 3rd party backup software, but most of them only supports ESX 4 not the ESXi 4.

I'm reluctant to change all of my ESXi 4 production server with ESX 4 since i personally think and experience that by using ESXi 4 it is smaller and less patch to do.

any kind of suggestion and idea will be greatly appreciated.
