Hey Totaram!
Yes Viptela can run on esxi. The format for this is .OVA

Nuage also comes in versions for esxi and kvm, can’t find the reference at the moment but here is a clear write up on the options.

Remember under the hood it’s just a VMware VM OVA file for a Linux install, that happens to do networking.
