Philosophically, I don't see how running on ESXi virtualization is any more or 
less proprietary than running on IBM (Dell, etc.) hardware  directly.  Unless 
you are just being pedantic about it, the main thing to consider is whether or 
not you could move your application elsewhere easily if you had to live without 
the unique proprietary features of any platform.  And you can, if you pay 
attention to how things work.  In fact there is some standardization being done 
in the virtual containers, and I'd assume VMware is a leader in that.
