Editions and licenses

No changes in vCenter Server editions (still Essential, Foundation and Standard)  and licenses (still per instance); note that the new VMware vCenter Server Virtual Appliance is not a new edition but just another way to deploy vCenter. More changes in ESXi both in the editions (the Advanced edition has been removed) and in licensing, with the new concept of vRAM Entitlement.
