I'm migrating to new hardware in the next few weeks and am wondering if it's worth my while to have seperate virtual servers for a few applications?
There's three basic things on my server:
1) My stuff, low load
2) a friend's stuff, low load but he runs FTP and I hate having that running on my server.
3) another friend's stuff, fairly high load - actually his site is driving the hardware upgrade.
Right now they're all on one box, one server. Would it make sense to set up 2 or three virtual servers on the new machine and partition that way? Or is that just a waste of overhead and more work?
