Obviously Xen, KVM, ESXI, and others are most efficient, but either of those other vmware products would suffice and give decent performance.

Right now I'm fiddling with Oracle VM. It work's alright. The VM's have been stable so far. I do not have a budget for VM software at this time, other projects demand my monies. If I ever decide to run VM's more I will look into buying proper software:) I tried a few before Oracle and none would even install the VM's.

Performance isn't my utmost priority with this server, None of the task's its gong to be doing are demanding, and for its application this Home Server is overkill to say the least. However I have yet to have the VM's tested while running any of my server applications. Too busy to sit down and set it up, maybe this weekend I can move both my MineCraft and TeamSpeak server's to ubuntu to test them out... But before I do that I still have to sit down and fiddle with the minecraft server, its a little buggy still redface.gif
To many things to do not enough time to learn how to do them!!

Well, I'm just wondering cause you said earlier you had tried a VMware product, but it didn't work for you. Just wondering which specific product. VMWare server or workstation would be the most effective product, because you could have the VMs auto start/stop with the system incase of an emergency shutdown.

Sorry for the confusion. I used the free version of VMWare Player. The program installed just fine, but I couldn't get anything to install. I am looking into VMWare server's free version though.

Vmware server is free, and would better suit what you want out of it. Virtualbox has its place, but vmware server would be your best bet.

If you're looking for free and decent VM server software, a combination of Ubuntu (or CentOS) + KVM (or Xen, which Oracle VM uses) + Convirture would likely suit your needs. Once I build my own server, this will be the VM software I will use. smile.gif

Sweet. Work has been very demanding so I have not had any time at all to actually play with the server, let alone fiddle with the VM software. I still am thinking about replacing windows 7 with CentOS as the primary OS and then load windows 7 as a Virtual Machine. The only thing stopping me is making linux play well with my windows 7 home network(homegroup right now). I know it can be done but I don't know fully how to do it.

Thanks for the link's, I'm going to do tons of reading, thankfully winter is coming and you cannot do Concrete in the winter(least not here) so I will have plenty of time to fiddle with it soon. Work has already started to slow down a tad.

I'd highly recommend VMware Workstation if you have the money for it. I use it daily for a number of VM's with no problems at all.
