Database server on a virtual server sounds like a bad idea to me.

Databases are huge resource consumers, they require dedicated resources memory/cpu/IO/network.

In virtual settings all this is shared.

So, I predict that in virtual your performance and throughput will suffer greatly.

You can google pro's and con's of virtualized servers for more details.

However, as far as BO product is concerned - all we need is connectivity, if DB connect info doesn't change - we won't see no difference . (except above about performance)
