[asterisk-users] Asterisk 11 under VMware?

     I have found Asterisk using only SIP is very responsive on virtual 
machines.  We have used VMs for call center applications and for complex 
IVR solutions without problems.  Obviously there is overhead running a 
VM so you can never expect a VM to perform as well as bare metal.  
Running a single VM on a server is a complete waste of resources, might 
as well run natively.
