    RE: How i can Create a virtual machine without virtualbox
    You can install VirtualBox headless, meaning running it from the shell. Maybe you mean you want to run virtual machines remotely or on servers with no GUI? [url=https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch07.html]https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch07.html[/url]

    RE: Best Linux server with Hardware to use for mid size business
    My suggestion would be a Dell PowerEdge as far as hardware goes. There are multiple options for various budgets. I can even recommend buying a used one from a reputable reseller. Software-wise, my first pick is Debian 64-bit; it is very stable, easy to update, and has a large number of free software packages for it. It will support print and file services, active directory via Samba 4 if you want to use a Windows domain with Windows desktops, and even DNS and authentication services. You do not even have to install a graphical user interface if it will be managed solely over the network, but if it makes the server administrator more comfortable to control the server locally, there are various desktop options available for free. Naturally, there are many hardware/software combinations; these are only my recommendations based on personal experience.
