I'm too thinking that virtualization has its place where it's a pretty good
thing, but not everywhere. I saw bad setups where something went wrong an
all of the vm's were affected.
Yes, this is not a problem with the vm itself but bad design/setup of the vm

Thank you for your responses. I'll run some benchmarks on a physical and a
virtual server. Could be that we have one physical and one virtual server.
That way we have both and can get our own experiences with it. Maybe we'll
add switch to only physical or virtual servers in a second step
