If you have purchased VMware vSphere 5.0 Essential Plus License and Subscription, you are licensed for

Three (3) VMware Hypervisor ESXi 5.0 hosts with HA
VMware vCenter Server to manage 3 ESXi 5.0 hosts.
VMware Data Recovery.

VMware vCenter is available as two options either as an Appliance or for Windows Server. You have decided to deploy the appliance.

You are also licensed to use VMware Data Recovery which is also an applicance.

You are licensed to use the appliances for the purpose of vCenter and Data Recovery, to modify these appliances for other purposes is not supported.

Please note these are appliances for specific usage, e.g. vCenter Server and Data Recovery, they are not for general usage as Linux servers.

They support is included in the Support and Subscription Agreement you have with VMware.
