Which virtual machines do you currently use and why do you use them?

    At home or at work? At work, pretty much anything that doesn't require a physical card (ie dialogic cards, etc) is virtualized.

    Home lab has (though they're rarely all running at same time):
    VCSA
    Windows 2012 box

    Then all of my training/testing/study VMs
    Nexus 1000v (VSM)
    vMX
    Firefly
    Data Ontap Cluster Mode Simulator
    VNX Simulator
    F5 BigIP Virtual Edition
    Virtually Ghetto VSAN appliance, 3 node
    UCS Platform Emulator
    Probably something else I'm forgetting

    Haven't turned on my lab for a couple of weeks due to work commitments again. So, off the top of my head.

    AD (2008r2)
    VCSA 6.0
    XP Desktop
    Ubuntu server

    I did have NSX installed, but have since removed.

    That's it for the moment as I had been testing out a few different OS' here and there, but since removed.

    My homelab runs the following VMs:
    - IncrediblePBX
    - pfsense
    - Ubuntu desktop
    - Ubuntu Server
    - CentOS
    - A few Win 7
    - XP
    - Security Onion
    - Kali
    - A few vulnerable VMs
    - Windows stuff (ADs, Exchange, File/Print, etc.) primarily dormant as I've been out of the Microsoft game fro a while.

    I'm actually planning a lab revamp project so this should shrink a bit.

    Server 2012r2 level domain with:
    Hyper-V
    A couple of Domain Controllers
    Active Directory Certificate Services
    DHCP
    Windows Distribution Services Server

    Heavy 2012r2 focus while I work though the 411 and I'll go to VMM while I tackle the 409. Then it's over to ESXi as the primary environment. For me it's all about learning the services, picking apart the replication processes, and configuring and maintaining a Microsoft infrastructure. (For now!)

    I am going to run windows server 2012 for the same reason. Plus its what my work environment uses. 2012 and hyper v.

    I use VirtualBox as it is extremely easy to use even by a new Linux user. The main features and functionalities that can be easily accessed without any hard-core technical knowledge. Its biggest advantage is its cross platform support, open source. Install virtualbox on Linux, windows, and Mac OS X.
