Stock or HP ESXi? Which is better?
Posted on 2014-03-26
We use HP BL460 Gen 8 blades and Gen 8 rack servers that we run ESXi (5.1 and 5.5) on. Up until now, we've always used the stock ESXi install provided by VMware. Should we be using the ESXi install provided by HP instead? What are the advantages?
If so, what is the process if we want to update to 5.5 U1? Do we have to wait for HP to release their copy of VMware 5.5 u1, or can we just complete the stock upgrade on top of HPs install?
