I like the VM approach because it gives a foolproof to snapshot the
guest and do testing/rollbacks easily, also the hardware configuration
is usually significantly simpler as it's abstracted, and it makes
the server more portable, easier to move to another system as a whole.

Where performance is a real big concern I use native hardware, but
those cases are fairly rare.
