    Hi all

    We just got a new dell R710 server. I got a free licence from vmware, downloaded it, burned it on a CD and installed vmware ESXi 4 on its 1GB card to act as hypervisor.

    Then I allocated all hard disk space (~600GB) as a single datastorage repository. So far so good.

    I also got vSphere as evaluation and installed it on a seperate machine, specifically my computer.

    Finally created a new virtual machine running Windows 2008 R2 on it and works OK too.

    What I need to know are two things:

    1-Are these licences free? or we shall buy some?
    2-Downloading from the datastore to a PC via network takes ages? what is the best method?

    Thanks all for your help
