On windows boxes, Hyper-V beats all the alternatives, including VMware. VirtualBox doesn't even play in the same league. VirtualBox on Linux is a rather crappy product, leaks memory all over the place. Two virtual machines, 4GB RAM each, when running together take 12GB RAM. I wouldn't use it on Windows. Hyper-V is much, much better.
