Product features include: vCenter agents, 8-way vSMP, and Update Manager. The server hosts can be managed by the vCenter Server Essentials edition that is provided with this bundle, and that same vCenter Server Essentials edition cannot be used to manage other server hosts not included with this edition.

To unlock central management of hosts, vCenter Standard must be purchased (sold separately). Hosts can be managed either by vCenter Standard or the vCenter for Essentals that comes with each kit, but not both simultaneously.VMware offers this vSphere 5 edition for Mid-size and Enterprise customers to virtualize their distributed small office deployments, such as their retail locations or branch offices (ROBO). It provides the flexibility to manage the remote locations locally or from a central location. The Essentials edition includes VMware vCenter Server for Essentials for locally managing up to 3 hosts and VMware Update Manager for automated host and guest patching.
