Parent article: Testing out the Xen live CD
That's exactly what I have in mind for securing our company's webserver. Our problem is, that we have exactly one server for many different services and much old code running there where no one knows about the security risks.
So I thought about using Xen to let every service run on it's own virtual machine and using destination NAT and apache proxying (for splitting our PHP scripts and the frontpage stuff one customer needs) to bring them together on one external IP.
So when the catastrophy finally comes it's only one service that's going down instead of everything.
