    Hey guys,

    I have two applications that I need to run on an ESXi box.

    They are old enough from a few years ago and don't need much grunt, dual core over 1.5GHz would be fine with 16GB RAM. I have a beefy Hyper-V box that I use for most of my VM's but this application actually does a VMWare hardware check on install in order to access the demo/eval licenses.

    Whats the current choice for a low power low cost ESXi box, anything in the AM1 stable working well with vanilla ESXI? I'd prefer to stay away from rolling custom ISO's etc.

    Cheers in advance guys!

    Atom C2550 would be your best bet for low power and no need for custom ISO
