Costs 400 mb Ram.
Costs 1 memory card/stick/pen/embedded chip(most usual)
Saves loads of power/hardware costs. servers idle most of the time!
I hope this crash course intro to vmware ESXI was at any help for any.
i dont want to get too far off topic here, but really virtualization is only useful if you need to run various services on different operating systems. if you are simply a web hosting company you could buy 100 dual xeon machines and run freebsd and never worry about a thing if they are networked properly.
