It''s possible you could use ESXi 5.0, if you have a support Mac Server.

I would actually recommend Parallels 7 for Mac over VMware Fusion 4.0, although VMware products are very good, Fusion has been playing catchup with Parallels for many years, and it's getting their, but performance is still better with Parallels.

(if you want to keep your Mac OS? and install a Type 2 Hypervisor)

If you have a Xserve3,1 it's supported for ESXi 5.0.

VMware fusion's latest version supports Mac OS X installations too. I like it better than parallels. It's also really good with making existing PCs into virtual machines.
