My application is vserver-based services, so naturally I'm interested
in maximizing the amount I can run on a given machine. I understand
up to 400 VServers are easily doable on a 4 GByte machine, depending
on average footprint, of course. (I currently only run few ten on a
1.4 GHz 2 GByte Athlon XP machine, which perform very well).

If you need to run different kernels, or even different OS 
simultaneously, or only need to run a few lightly loaded
virtual servers on each physical machine VServer is not 
the right solution.
