VSphere License in addition to the VMware View 5 Premier Bundle

I have purchased VMware View 5 Premier Bundle for a small office.  The desktops are running on a new server but the vm servers are running on an old 2950 using the free version of ESXI.

I want to buy a license for the 2950 and put a vsphere license on it.  Whats the most economical license to buy?  Can I buy the vsphere essential package that comes with 3 host and just use one vsphere license in conjunction with with the vcenter license I got with the view pack?

I want to use VEEAM and I need to have vsphere to backup my vms.

Thanks,

J

I believe the licensing for the vCenter server in the Bundle is that it can only be used tto manage a VMware View environment so you will need to purchase a another vCenter license anyway - the most cost effective would be the essentials bundle -
