Platform Services Controller Free Download

I think I already know this answer but I do not want to miss out on an opportunity for my home lab for keeping up to date on training and research.

I currently have two servers running the free version of 6.5. Is there a free platform services download that is available for lab use (ie limited number of machines connections etc etc)

Thanks

Mike

If by "platform services" you actually mean "vCenter Server" then the answer is no. You can use a 60-day trial of vCenter, but it either must be licensed or uninstalled after. Another very cheap option is VMUG Advantage subscription which for $200/year (don't quote me) you can get a number of licenses to use in your lab. It's a great deal.
