VMware ESXi and Veeam Backup & Replication - VMware license requirements

Hi Everyone

Thought it would be easier to ask as im just wasting time searching around on the internet.

I want to use Veeam backup and replication.

I have a physical host running VMware ESXi (free version) with 4 VM servers on.

Veeam backup and replication says it will not work on ESXi free edition. But what edition/ license of ESXi do I need to buy??? ESXi free edition does everything I need, so I don't need to spend money on VMware products, licenses that I don't need... what is the minimum I can purchase to enable me to use Veeam Backup & Replication??? Is there simply a paid version of ESXi license I can buy and input the license key so I can use Veeam?
