VM slicing and dicing

We've been looking at Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS) blade
server, which appears to have great potential. Very fast, and eliminates
almost all top-of-rack copper cabling from servers to top-of-rack
switch. Custom-built for VMWare optimization, but other virtualization
OS's will run also from what I have read. Ten GiGE and FCoE are the
entry points at the server access layer.

Hey gents:

As always I value your input. Best resource on the planet! =)
I'm hoping this isn't too off-topic if so please respond to me offline
if so.

I figured since most of everyone here are operators working in a
datacenter, you may or may
not have experience with virtualization software that allows you to
configure VM's on the fly.

I'm not looking for companies that offer this service, but the actual
software engines that allow you
to create VM's on the fly. So a customer goes to your website and says I
want Win2008 with 8gigs of RAM and 120gigs of HDD.
Just like custom configuring a new PC.

Does anyone here have experience or knowledge of companies that offer
this type of software engine?

Thanks in advance!
