VM Configuration

RE: VM Configuration
I usually allocate 1 core and 1GB of RAM to the VM's and they work quite well. I have 10 VM's running on a single E3-1230 (quad core, hyperthreading) with 16GB of Ram and the overall system utilization (viewed from the hypervisor) when running tests in all of the VM's hovers around 60-80%.

I usually use VMWare but Microsoft's Hypervisor scales well too. 4VM's would scream on that hardware. You're probably going to be memory limited and could stack even deeper if you wanted.

One caveat is that GPU acceleration doesn't work in VM's (Dulles has that issue now). I'm experimenting with adding Quadro cards that do support in-VM GPU acceleration and adding support for testing hardware-accelerated browser rendering. Not a big deal, just something to be aware of as all of the browsers move towards using GPU's in their rendering pipeline.
