Virtualbox can provide such an environment.

KVM in Centos works great, here you can find the documentation:
Virtualbox as say Habitual says can be ok too, but I found Kvm more enterprise like.

Thanks to all

first f all thanks to all for your reply, i want to configure developer sandbox.

what is Developer Sandbox
Developer sandboxes are special configuration-only sandboxes intended for coding and testing by a single developer. Multiple users can log into a single developer sandbox, but their primary purpose is to provide an environment in which changes under active development can be isolated until they’re ready to be shared. Just like configuration-only sandboxes, developer sandboxes copy all application and configuration information to the sandbox. Developer sandboxes are limited to 10 MB of test or sample data, which is enough for many development and testing tasks. You can refresh a developer sandbox once per day.

Can any one suggest on this ?

What are the devlopers developing? The suggestions were to provision Virtual Machines for the purpose. On those Virutal Machines you will need to install the tools the developers will use and provide any generic configuration that at some level resembles production. Once you have a basic configuration you can copy the virutal machine or if you have a more complex virutal tool "clone" the base configuration to give each developer a sandbox to play in. A virtual machine / host.
