Since I notice you are considering VMware, you might not be too concerned
about source. Citrix Xenserver is said to be the best and I have downloaded
it for my own server. I am yet to install it but I have made up my mind that
it is the best. It also seems that virtualbox has is functionally limited in
the open source edition. Citrix Xenserver made its enterprise edition free
in March. It is also worth considering whether you want to fully or
partially virtualise.
