VMware FREE hypervisor

Last Modified: 2014-05-01
All we will need is to run 40 Win XP VMs. They will run on a single ESXi host, which has 2 CPUs, and 40GB of memory. We are not sure whether we need to purchase an Essentials license or go with free hypervisor license.

Does the free VMware hypervisor support NFS datastores (NetApp volumes)?

We noticed the Essentials license comes with vSphere API, and Storage APIs.
What do these 2 features do for us in terms of what we are trying to accomplish?
