Hello, I'm trying to learn more about vmware...
Can someone please explain to me (in simple terms) what is an esx, & vsphere.
my understanding is that esx is installed directly onto the machine (hardware)... its sort of the foundation for everything else. Does vsphere then get installed on top of esx?
Esx allows you to install server 2008, ubuntu, windows 7, etc... right?
What's a wmware-workstation? can that be installed instead of vsphere?
also what's the difference between ESX and ESX1 and the vshpere hypervisor??
please explain in lain-mates terms
