I need to download the hypervisor with a free license for Intel

I went to this site

https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/info/slug/datacenter_cloud_infrastructure/vmware_vsphere/5_5

I see Essentials, Essentials Plus, Standard, Enterprise, Enterprise Plus, and Desktop.

Which one of these do I choose ?

Also, is the hypervisor named "VMware ESXi 5.5.0" or "VMware vCenter Server 5.5.0b"

Thanks

The link you are using is a wrong one. Use the one Kirill provided.

You will need a MyVMware account to register for a free license. If you don't have an account, create one and then login.

Download the ESXi and install it. Once you are done installing, come back to your MyVMware and login with the credentials you used for registering for free ESXi.

You will find a Key for your free hypervisor. Once you apply it to the host you are good to go.
