We're not virtualizing on the same config either.
My original description was for the current hardware only.
I've not had a hand in the negotiations myself, so I don't know exactly, but I 
presume the increased performance of our new virtual cpus will more than make 
up for them being singlecore.
We are very seldom CPUbound anyway, it's mostly IO that troubles us.
But thanks for your concern :)
