Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In my opinion there are several benefits when using virtualization as I describe in Virtualization Benefits – Lefteris Karafilis Blog

Easier DR, Snapshots, HW consolidation, HA clustering to name a few. The same goes with VCenter as long as you are able to host it in a HA cluster or a node that won’t affect its managed VSphere environment. It is not an accident that VMware released an appliance version of VCenter.
