Overkill is getting a Dell poweredge server to be a big VM server.
Vmware is happily supported by both vmware's tools and the open-
vmtools package. I find vmware has a lower idle CPU cost than
VirtualBox (at least on a mac desktop).
Any vm solution will work fine as an ubuntu sandbox. And a vm sandbox
is a great idea for this kind of project.
