Castlewood asked
Last Modified: 2015-04-30
We are a small company. We are wondering if we can use the free version of VMware in our production mode. We just bought  a new server-grade hardware box with a hardware RAID. The idea is put VMware on it and then we will install about 3 VMs on it. Would a free version of VMware do it?

By the way, what is the difference between a pay and a free VMware in terms of its functionalities?
