[Freeswitch-users] FreeSWITCH in virtual environments

Hi Dan

We have quite a few FS running in KVM VMs under moderately heavy load with
no issues. We always make sure the host isn't over taxed and I believe
thats important.

Have a number of FS instances on customer sites running under vmware with
no issues also.

I don't think virtualisation is the big bad monster it used to be in older
times but I would be dubious about running a critical fs instance on a
public VPS.
