I am in a school environment. I want to buy a VMware server for use with approximately 50 VMs.
In a previous question, I explored the kind of server that I need. Now I need to know the cost of the VMware licensing. (Our school board can access the Microsoft licensing free of charge to me, so I can leave aside that question for now.)
Server: HPE ProLiant DL360 Gen9, Xeon E5-2640 v4 2.4 GHz, 240 GB RAM, 12.6 TB HD (7 * 1.8 TB)
Question: What do I need to purchase in terms of VMware ESXi licensing? The processor has 10 cores.
I'm also interested in websites that promote and have ideas about the use of virtualization in educational environments. Maybe that's a separate question.
