I somehow doubt that virtualizing the server will help speed things  
up. virtualization will always add overhead, and smp-guests certainly  
imposes rather a lot of overhead. I would think the linux schedulers  
(at least one of them) are probably better suited to run the load  
efficiently than using separate VMs.

Just my two cents...

I all pedagogikk er det essensielt at pensum presenteres  
intelligibelt. Det er en elementært imperativ for alle pedagoger å  
unngå eksessiv anvendelse av idiomer med fremmed opprinnelse. I de  
fleste tilfeller eksisterer adekvate og relevante synonymer på norsk.
