There are several pages on the web with relevant hardware lists that work with ESXi but have not been updated in quite some time. This is an archive that I’m looking for community input on. I’d like to gather a community driven list of what works with various versions of VMware ESXi. This will help those of us who are looking to build vSphere home labs.
I’ve split this HCL into multiple sections and we can expand as necessary. I’ve started with the three most popular categories.
Please share this list and submit to it. It’s only as good as the stuff that’s been submitted.
Click the links below to see the current HCL and to submit new entries. Once they’re submitted, the HCL will automatically update every 5 minutes.
Please note, the hardware below has not been tested by me or by VMware. These submissions are all community driven and should not be used in any environment that you’re looking for official support. Seriously. I’m not kidding. 🙂
