Professionally and at home I am use kvm virtualisation with virsh for
command line management and virt-manager for GUI management and
graphical access when needed.

I chose these tools for the following reasons:
 - open source
 - command line tools available for scripting
 - uses VNC for graphical access (VNC was already in use for other tasks)
 - able to build complex virtual networks
 - able to script and automate building and deployment of guest vm images
 - easy to install, configure, and maintain on Ubuntu Server
