Virtual or physical?

Hi!

If I have one host, am I going to get better performances if I run only
one
nginx on the physical host, or would it be more beneficial to run 4
virtual
machines each running a different nginx?

Thanks!

With nginx on physical host you will get better performance, but VMs are
more
easy to manage and maintain (backup/resoter, upgrade by replacing one VM
by
other VM, fast move to other host in case of hardware failure, e. t.
c.).

Decision should depends on many factors including server load (traffic,
requests
per second e. t. c).
