Hello Maged,

This document should help you with the ESX configuration.

Sorry about that, currently it appears only QEMU/KVM is available on the Community Edition, and there isn't anything in the documentation talking about alternate hypervisors. I'll ask around to see if ESX is on the roadmap for the Community edition.

I just confirmed ESX is on the roadmap for the Community Edition, but no ETA on the release cycle. http://www.openstack.org/marketplace/... gives you a clearer idea of what the HP Helion community edition supports.

There is no publicly available download option for the Commercial Edition at this time. The hardware requirements are a bit more then the community edition if you want to take a look http://docs.hpcloud.com/helion/openst... . I'm not sure if it's available to be purchased online :(.
