Scaling Tigase on VMware

I have a general question with a probable obvious answer, but I am asking this question just as a sort of precaution.

Is there any limitation or trade-off to use or not to use a visualization solution like VMware Bare-Metal to implement Tigase server for 500K to 1M users?

To be more specific, we would like to benefit from general advantages of using a visualized solution, but also concerned if virtual environment might impose a side effect on Tigase server.

Thank you in advance for help

From our experience virtualization offers significantly lower performance that a real HW, to the point that it is much more cost effective to rent real servers from a provider than using Amazon cloud services for on-demand VMs.

Other than that, Tigase will work on VM.
