I have attempted to get VMWare ESX running under Qemu/Xen/KQEMU without success. If Qemu supported SCSI hardware it would present a working option...but it does not and the VM's are based on SCSI hard drives.

The cheapest hardware that it will run on is somthing like a compaq proliant 1600. Which is what I currently have for VMWare ESX...I have 3 VM's running (all linux) Windows is more of a memory hog and this error of computer only supported 1 gig of memory which isnt enough to get but a single windows VM running. You might want to look at PIV servers that supported 3-4 gig of ram but they are more expensive for sure. You also need a storage area network for VM migration with VMotion product since it does not support ISCSI in its current incarnation. They say ISCSI support will be available in the next ESX version but ISCSI would require integration of a whole TCP/IP stack into VMKernel which is a stability headache at best so I wouldnt doubt it if it ISCSI didnt actually make it into the next version.
