Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
have a look at vmware ESXi - this essentially loads a minimal OS on which you can specify storage areas etc for your VM's.

You need to manage the vm's however in this situation from another machine on your network (create etc), however once they are up and running you avoid all the overhead of a Host OS.

Look at thne EXSi stuff on vmware -- its free but you still need a license -- sent by email from vmware.

Note of warning - this stuff is NOT trivial to set up properly as its really intended for enterprise operations and "server farms" but there isn't in principle any reason why you can't run ot on a decent piece of hardware.
