What have statistics shown?

Virtualisation has its share of pitfalls that you need to learn to avoid, or at least lessen your exposure/risk. There is a massive number of features and functionality to choose from, and making the right choice can be difficult. 


Virtual machines are very easy to build and create when compared to all you need to do to commission a physical server, but VM on-demand has a price.
