I'm currently working on a 1024-core Nehalem cluster (124 physical  
servers) that runs upwards of 25,000 jobs per day and we are doing it  
with our head nodes and qmaster virtualized under VMWare ESX with  
backend VM storage coming from a NetApp filer.

No problems at all for us running the qmaster under the VM, the  
standard caveats about network and file IO being slower due to the  
virtualization apply but other than that we've seen no issues.
