“The major benefit of ESXi is the fact that it is more lightweight — under 100MB versus 2GB for VMware ESX with the service console.”
“Smaller means fewer patches”
“It also eliminates the need to manage a separate Linux console (and the Linux skills needed to manage it)…”
“VMware users should put a plan in place to migrate to ESXi during the next 12 to 18 months.”

ESXCLI establishes a standard with an extensible framework.
Going forward ESXCLI commands will be backward compatible
1. ‘esxcfg’ commands deprecated in 5.0 (replaced with esxcli)
2. ‘esxcli’ in 4.x is *not* backward compatible with 5.0
3. ‘vicfg’ used for remote CLI only

SDRS allows you to create a schedule to change its settings.
This can be useful for scenarios where you don’t want VMs to migrate between datastore or when I/O latency might rise, giving false negatives, e.g. during VM backups.
3. w/ I/O controls, can give VIP VMs preferential access
2. Other VMs are starved for resources
1. VM requests more resources
High IO Throughput
Richer Desktop Experience
Broader Device Coverage
