I would not recommend using server virtualisation for running QV Server on.

QV Server needs significant dedicated RAM for its in memory analytics and exploits large scale caching to the extent that current virtualisation technologies are unsuitable.

I hope virtualisation technologies do mature over the next few years to the point where they are viable for QV Server, as I am big advocate of server virtualisation.

I wouldn't say that you shouldn't use VM's, but there are some considerations. In my experiences, they work great for initial projects, short-term projects or projects that have a limited lifespan.  They also work fine for small deployments.  RAM Consumption is something to consider and QVS is a bit of a resource hog.  That said, there are some considerations.   I can't find a link to the document, but if you give me your email address, I'll email you the document I have.
