Can an Enterprise Asterisk install run on VMWare

Does anyone know if Asterisk will run on VMWare in an ENTERPRISE environment with hundreds even thousands of users? Is it against best practices to virtualize Askerisk? What are the cons of running it on ESX 4.1?

not a good idea at all. Ok for development and [maybe] very small installs but not at all suitable for enterprise class installations.

I would not either. When it comes to voice, TIMING is very important.

Thanks for the information.
