Additional software/vibs added to each ESXi host (drivers, firmware, misc)

This list contains S3 CloudFront backed download links. Enjoy!

I can only recommend the following for Supermicro X10SL7-F motherboard and ESXi 5.5+ The following are the result of extensive reliability and performance testing for all four hosts. Some if not most of these links are general and not specific to a X10SL7-F, but i cannot vouch for their use in such a scenario.

Note (04-09-15): CloudFront fixed re Geo-restrictions issues site round
