In my experience, vmware's strength is in applications that are mostly
throughput based (ie web serving, file serving and the like). Its
corresponding weakness is in latency - ssh into a well-loaded vmware
server and it's noticeably jittery in its response time. This can be tuned
but the lower the latency the higher the drag on the CPU.
