Hi Santiago

It depends on the load you will have on the system. Are we talking about 50
concurrent calls or 500?

Id's say as long as your HD IO is good enough you won't have problems running
it virtualized. Although if you hit high load I would use dedicated hardware
and take care about IO.

In my experience RAM is the most important thing to have in the SPCE. Then, HDD
IO (raid 10 is a good idea IMHO). CPU is not that important or intensive. If
running in virtual environments take care if HDD speed and network card
