    Cool toys - do they make use of virtual servers to emulate a customer environment or replicate it on real kit 1 box per customer box, I wonder?  What would be the strengths and weaknesses of doing it that way?

    We sometimes use virtual servers, but most of the time we build our customer environment on the metal.  It's a test environment, so we like for it to be a close to their production environment as possible.  Much of our customer testing is heavily performance based as well.  If, however, we are running short on equipment we will occasionally go virtual server route.  The other time we use virtual servers is when we want to save the environment so that it can be quickly reproduced.
