Free ESXi is compatible with NFSv3 and v4 as well as paid version. There is no difference here.

To my knowledge, the ESXi Free edition had the same functionality as the commercial (it's the same executable), but with limitations (for ESXi 6.5+) :

  • No support
  • Free ESXi cannot be added to a vCenter Server
  • 2 physical CPUs
  • Unlimited cores per CPU
  • Unlimited physical Memory
  • max. 8 vCPU per VM
  • No write access to vSphere API
