Nothing stops you. Virtualized environment could potentially have worse
performance in terms of networking. virtio cards don't behave as well as
physical ones. But you can do load tests. Depending on your load you'll most
probably have more than enough to run what you want.

You can also run snapshots if you run a normal system over lvm2 or using btrfs
for example. There are lots of backup/restore procedures and yours is just one
of them. Use the solution you feel easier or more comfortable.
