I use VBox as "Desktop"-Virtualization. It's working fine.

I have not much experiences with VBox as "Server"-Virtualization but
VBox has cmdl-tools for creating, modifying, starting and stopping of
virtual-machines. VBox has also a built in RDP-Server and you
can start guest "Headless" so you don't need X on your Server.
