    http://blog.jdpfu.com/2013/12/11/how...-data-overview is how I've done it. Works regardless of VM hypervisor. I've gone from Vbox, ESXi and Xen to KVM that way. For non-desktops, KVM is great. For desktops ... er ... virtualization really isn't ideal for what most people expect - but virtualbox seems to be the best answer.

    Of course, you know that both 9.10 and 10.10 are unsupported, so they shouldn't be allowed on ANY network. 14.04 is nice and you don't have to run Unity.

    40G is HUGE! Why so large? Most of my VMs are 4-15G. Data is stored outside the VM on the network. Perhaps now is the time for you do consider this?
