How do I obtain VCB from VMware and how much does it cost?
Answer- VCB is actually free and is included in all versions of ESX 3, including Foundation,Standard, and Enterprise editions, as well as ESXi. The VCB framework package can then be installed directly on a Windows server to enable it as a “VCB Proxy Server”.
