How do you use virtualization in your business/personal computing?

Answer Wiki

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We use virtualization in every way we can.
I use a Mac Laptop as my primary machine. I tried fusion on it for a while, but then started using a remote VM as my windows desktop. That helps avoid any performance hit on my laptop, and allows me to run all the windows tools that I need to run.
On the business side, we have just started rolling it out from evaluation to dev machines.

    We run pretty much our entire business off of VMs. There's a couple of systems which didn't make sense to make a VM, but of 200 Windows servers, 6 are physical and the rest are VMs. As a Microsoft MVP, I do a lot of presentations, so I'm always using VMs at my presentations. My laptop has 4 or 5 Windows 2003 Server VMs that I take with me and use for various presentations.

    We are currently using virtualization for our development and testing environments only.

    In some of our offices, VMs are used for development and QA testing; in others, VMs host infrastructure services (DHCP, DNS, RADIUS, TACACS, monitoring), Internet-facing applications (FTP, SFTP, web, mail relay), and production applications (web, in-house apps, OCR from scans). Just about the only thing we aren't virtualizing yet are databases. I think that, in time, we will convince the PTBs that virtualization can be a good thing for any purpose (with a few specific exceptions).
