One concern I have is this: Although Virtualization is great for maximizing server utilization, it would seem to also to create a single point of failure. What is there were a hardward failure? All services and virtual servers would go down. (Unless you had a fault tolerant system with built-in hardware redundancy.)
So, along with that concern is a question: How well does virtualization do in a clustered environment? Does the process load get distributed well to the nodes, or would it stay on the host or master node?
I do not have any experience yet with clusters or virtualization, but am thinking this could be a great way for all those old cpu we all have laying around to be used.
