That reads awkwardly.  Might I suggest something a little more concise:

In contrast to other drivers, the ESX driver is a client-side-only
driver.  The ESX driver connects to the local ESX server using HTTP(S).
 Therefore, the <a...>remote transport mechanism</a> provided by the
remote driver and libvirtd will not work, and you cannot use URIs like
<code>esx+ssh://example.com</code>.
