    Best bet would be to hire a consultant and go over what you require from them.

    To get you started though ESXi is the OS and acts as the hypervisor between the virtual machines and the hardware.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypervisor

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VMware_ESX

    This is managed using the VMware vSphere Client and you can connect directly to the ESX host or install vSphere vCenter 5.

    Your VM's are then created and added to the system, either in vCenter or directly on the ESXi host.

    Please go to http://www.vmware.com for much, much more info.

      Ok, so you need to run ESXi on 2 or more physical servers, some form of shared storage for your VMs, vCenter Server to manage the ESXi hosts, and to setup vMotion and HA to allow VM migration and failover.

          Well, ESXi is the OS for the host server, so it's 1 ESXi installation per box. The installation is pretty straight-forward, provided you have your servername and network config info ready to go. Once that is completed, you'll need to access it by its IP address through a web browser. This will provide a link to the client download, through which you will configure your host server and set up your VMs.

          That said, I'd go with wullieb1's suggestion and hire a consultant. If you aren't familiar with ESXi or vSphere, it's pretty different from VMware Workstation. Also, one thing that's changed with version 5 of ESXi and that is it requires a license. In previous versions, you could run ESXi as a standalone host for free. Now, however, they want money for even those.

              That's not true, you can still use ESXi standalone for free...
