Not a silly question: why?  On the face of it this doesn't seem like  
virtualization is a good solution.  If your database engine scales  
with cores then virtualizing that is a losing proposition, and web  
farms are usually better handled as 1U rack mounts than virtualized on  
large hardware.

Just food for thought.
