Well, yes...Server is free, but totally (no exp. period), but it is only to be run on a Windows Server OS. Workstation you can download and trial it for 30 days.

Yes...but that installs directly on top of hardware, not on an OS. So, if you have a server/computer that is supported (check the HCL: http://www.vmware.com/resources/guides.html), you can run that too.

You can try VMware Player to see if that fits your needs as well:

yes, it's still free, they just changed the name to VMware vSphere HypervisorTM (ESXi)

ESXi (vSphere Hypervisor as "hanccocka" mentioned), is free and if you wanna upgrade it later, you can do so by simply adding a different license (tho it's free, you still need to add a 'free' license).

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
