Reposado NetBoot/Software Update Services VM
This free Ubuntu-based virtual appliance from JAMF Software looks like it could be really useful if you want to migrate NetBoot and/or SUS from an old Mac onto virtualized servers running vSphere, Hyper-V, Xen or KVM.

If you have never heard of Reposado before, the Managing OS X blog has a good overview...
JAMF Software has made available a virtual appliance that is a Linux server hosting Apple NetBoot services and Apple Software Update services via Reposado, the open-source SUS replacement from Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a new open-source project of interest to Mac OS X system administrators: Reposado
Reposado eliminates the need for Mac OS X Server (and Apple hardware) to host an internal Apple Software Update service. Reposado, a set of tools written in Python, replicates Software Update catalogs and updates. You can then use any available web server to serve these to your clients.
Additionally, Reposado allows you to easily implement an unstable/testing/release workflow, where you release updates only to a small set of machines for testing before releasing the updates to the rest of your managed machines.
Finally, Reposado allows you to continue offering “deprecated” updates. When Apple releases a new version of iTunes or Safari or a new Snow Leopard update, previous updates are no longer available from Apple’s update servers. But with Reposado, you can continue to offer these “deprecated” updates to your machines until you’ve tested the new versions.
