I'm wondering which is the minimal version I would need regarding these points : 1. Have 2 ESXi hosts, datastore located directly in the server (not on a SAN) 2. Would like to be able to use vMotion to transfer VMs to the 2nd server
So my questions are : 1. Can I use vMotion with these server settings, or do I really need a SAN? 2. Minimal version I need to purchase is vSphere Essential Plus (around 4500$ US) or I can purchase another cheaper version(s) that include vMotion?
ESXi-1 is main production server, ESXi-2 is mostly a backup server in case hardware problem would occur on ESXi-1. A Yes/No, use "that" VmWare software reply would be enough for me.
