    I am not sure if it is the best virtualization solution for windows server 2012, but you can try using VirtualBox ( to setup Linux VPS on your Windows server.

    +1 for VirtualBox. It's incredibly simply to start deploying virtual environments very quickly. A few point and clicks.

    A nice thing about VirtualBox is it does not require VT support on Intel chips for virtualization. I use it on older machines when needing to use another temporary OS quickly.

    It would appear VMWare Player requires virtualization support in the CPU:

    That being said, if you're running on newer hardware, you likely already have hardware virtualization enabled or easily enabled in your BIOS.

    +1 for Virtual Box as well.

    Not requiring VT support is what makes it a winner. As stated above.
