Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm trying to find what is best for server to run VM's and can be controlled over browser but it has also GUI for guest OS. I don't know which is better VirtualBox or VMware or something else??? Sorry I'm noob in server sided VM's that I'm asking here. And which OS is best as HOST. smile.gif Thank you for answers and sorry for my bad english.

this is a very open ended question with too many variables.

what is the end use for these VM's? how many VM's?

about the "best" one, I would try them both, I am partial to VMware but alot of people I know use a long list of other ones.

You'll be looking at ESXi 6 from VMware. ESXi is the operating system that installs to the server. You're going to hear the term vSphere 6 thrown around a lot; the reality is, that's the thick client that you use from a client machine to manage the hypervisor. You can get a free license for the host from VMware's website by creating an account.

What are you planning on doing with it? Like NKrader, I'm partial to VMware as well. But, depending on your application, there may be better options that offer more features for what you're budgeting for (even if that budget is 0).

If you already have windows, there is quick and dirty method to enable winrm for remote hyper v administration. I am a huge fan of hyper v, as the network overhead is basically zero, and you can still use the host as a regular pc!

I need virtual machines because I'm starting with developing for linux but I'm still using windows smile.gif but almost whole time I got putty and SSH to my server but that is not VM for now and everytime when I need test something new or if I mess something then I need reinstall it or use backup... VM will help me alot because I make one primary OS and every time just make copy of it.

If that's all you need, then it's hard to make a case against ESXi free edition. You can create and deploy OVF templates with free with relative ease.

ESXI is a good choise, the learning curve is a bit up there. Alternativ would be Xenserver with Xen Orchestra(Free Edition) - running both ESXI, XenServer and Hyper-V in the lab at home. I do love Hyper-V for the AD integrationen but the Xen Orchestra web management is just that good!

My two cents.
