Firstly, it's open source, that's a big plus to me, then It's fully customizable, it's stable and reliable enough to be deployed on production, though there are some bugs here and there but it's minimal and most of the time resolvable, You can ask help from the OpenStack community here and/or in the Mailing List, the community is huge. I've deployed and used it in production since 2014.

esxi itself is just a hypervisor, openstack sits on top of many hypervisors, it is a set of projects that helps you to manage your infrastructure. Most private companies uses Openstack to build their private cloud business, examples are Oracle and IBM/Redhat just to mention 2 relevant players

There are plenty of private and public clouds that have been running OpenStack for several years. It's stable for them.
