I am probably misreading this, what do you mean
- You need to clone or make multiple machine setups
--you use a VM to do so
- You are resource limited, so that you cannot complete multiple machines because you run out of hard drive space
- You use Virtual machines for others (creating their setups )
I thought initially it was a VM problem and started that thought track below; but if it is really to do with cloning machine setups, then remastersys or clonezilla or some other appliance tyep make, such as what Novell/Suse provided online would be the answerhttp://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/suse-studio.htmlNow that they have been sold and since it is an rpm based packager, might not be that useful, except as a good example
Without installing any applications on a VM, such as Virtualbox or VMware, the OS you use should allow you to minimize itself, but you still have to use whatever the VM decides represents a minimal installation..
If it is as it seems, you want web servers running supporting mulktiple databases or web browsing?

--an older Apache example..Virtual web hosts, single machine..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shared_web_hosting_service
--and if that is done, then a common SQL database set with different views (run a different client job) from each web host would seem to be a way of minimizing server space: however when setting up any such machine, the first requirement is always proper resource allocation, so if you have minimal resources, you either have to make do or squeeze those resources.
As to the options question, the windows OS offers only a minimal option choice, such as leave out the accessories folder etc..
--it can hardly be called customization..
