I have heard rumors that VMware ESXi 5 does work with Intel i5 and i7 processors. Can anyone confirm if it does run on i5/i7 or AMD CPU's? If it does work can you point me to either a bare bone system capable of handling 32GB-48GB of RAM that is on HAL for version 5? Can it work with iSCSI SAN set up using FreeNAS? Primary use will be to build computer networks for testing, let's say 6-10 servers.
Appreciate any help
