WE have AGS 10.1, of course on Server 2008R2.  Running on a virtual server.  Our server guys tell me there is a debate as to whether or not giving virtual servers multiple cores has any  benefit.  Apparently, they say, it is all down to the software, not only must be able to multi-thread, but also must be aware of the fact that it is on a Virtual server.

What are peoples feelings/experience here on the matter?
