It is going to be used for Cyber Security functions and have a lab of all my companies products for testing/demos.(Mangement Server, multiple WIN/LINUX endpoints/Web Gateway/Sandboxes/ etc)

Shouldn't be any issues with this AMD build and ESXi 6.7 (let say don't worry about money - hoping to be able to expense it via work)

Yea I have heard that - i would be using free version of ESXi and I usually shut it down when not in use (testing/Demos)

I also refresh every few months to re-install.
