For a single server the vSphere Essentials kits might be what you want to look at.

At http://www.vmware.com/vmwarestore/vsphere_smbpurchaseoptions_support.html you will also find the available support options.

Yes, if you buy a license you have the option of hiring support from VMware and when you need to call Support.

"VMware technical phone support is available to customers covered by  Production (24x7) and Basic (12x5) Support contracts. Desktop Standard  Support and Per Incident Support for all products can also be requested  over the phone. Support is delivered primarily in English language  except where local language availability is noted. Most phone numbers  listed are toll free."

Re: A.P.

Wow, thats a good idea. I thought I had to buy one of the vSphere editions, the cheapest one is the standard which is about 800,- + support subscption.

But the essential kit is only $600,- with 1 year support included. and its got vCenter, eventhough we don't need it.

Good call A.P. thanks.

Don't mix up "Support" and "Subscription". The Essentials kit only contains Subscription for the first year, you may need to buy additional Support! However, it's still a lot cheaper than the "big" licenses.
