What is your recommendation of running PostgreSQL on virtual servers?
PostgreSQL works very well with Virtualization. All one needs to make sure is proper provisioning of resources and proper segregation of I/O resources. Since databases are I/O bound, I/O would play a major role in any PostgreSQL setup. Same applies to virtualization as well. Our team has worked on several projects of setting up PostgreSQL on a highly available VM Ware, KVM cluster. We have also helped our customers realize the benefit of virtualization by database and workload consolidation to reduce the data center footprint and save on licensing cost.
