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

You didn’t say what Web platforms you have but this sounds like a good use forĀ VirtualBox.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Seen that VBox seems to be targeted to more “personal” use rather then business related I’d go to VMWare workstation where you may also consider to install some web stress tools (e.g., Microsoft Web Application Stress Tool) that will help you to test the websites in “heavy” conditions.
