i use oracle virtual box on my win 7 gaming pc, it really works well.
you just have to take care, to have a nice and relatively speedy internet connection (upload AND download speeds)
take a look at the server section in the ALB tech-support forum, where you will find lots of hints for using this VM.

I'm re installing now with the desktop environment but would prefer to just run what is needed since this will be internet facing.
same for you, take a look into ALB server-section.
all you need is in there...
