i don't know the exact number but, it's a LOT more than 15. I believe it's in the hundreds. I've got 25 so, you should be all set.

In VC2.5 you can add up to 200 ESX Hosts to VC if there are enough licenses installed.

You can check the current license count with the VI Client if you click on the "Admin"-Button and select the tab "Licenses"
