Hi All,

we bought new server HP Proliant ML360G7 and our client is planing to install there VMware ESXi hypervisor. I adviced them to use ESXi 4.1, but their IT guy wanted to install us ESXi 5.0. Its good idea to use it now in production environment? There will be few Windows Server 2008 R2 installed as VM, few linux VM. On one Windows Server R2 will be Oracle Database.

What do you think, shall I install ESXi 5.0, or rather to stay on 4.1 and then, after all (travail) problems will be solved and 5.0 will be tested I will do upgrade.
