It's not necessarily ideal due to cost and power usage: VMs are
substantially cheaper and utilise the host machine a lot more
efficiently. For example with the company I use, a dedicated server
costs £60 per month to host whereas a VM is just £15.  Hosting on a
DSL line is out of the question due to both latency and reliability.
