*which* virtualization?!

you can't compare a type 1 hypervisor with hosted virtualization

as long as you miss *real numbers* that's worth nothing and one of the 
real numbers are your own load

in case of good done virtualization you have slaves on different 
physical hosts anyways and so you need to ask yourself first if that 
"substantially" is measureable at all for your environment
