Default vmware product suggestion for hosting 15 VM's on a server?

I want to create a computer/server setup that is capable of running 15 virtual machines and would like advice on the ideal virtualisation software and server hardware to purchase. I have setup and used VMware Workstation at work in the past, so have a basic familiarity with vmware.

Requirements:
-15 VM's will need to be running and in use at the same. I will want to expand and run more in future, possibly upto 30 VM's.
-Each machine may require upto 2GB RAM in use.
-The setup will be located in my home, will only be accessed by myself with the VM's ideally being accessed directly from the server the majority of the time (I'd want to be able to plug a monitor, keyboard and mouse into the server). I would also want the option of being able to use a PC to access the vm's over the network and also to be able to access remotely from another physical location.
-Each machine would need to be completely independant of the other. To the outside internet world, the VM's should not be recognised as being hosted by the same computer/server. Is it possible to allocate each VM a Virtual CPU, virtual OS and Virtual HDD (or SDD) etc?


What would be the ideal server requirements required for this setup - Tower or Rack, CPU power, amount of RAM etc?

Thanks.

Dan
