Will SharedCache work on Virtual Servers?

Yes, I run all our development on VM's both Hyper-V and VMWARE and there are no issues.

Currently running 96 nodes (4 instances on twelve virtual servers, had to patch software to allow multi instance on one server)  Server nodes do fall over under high load (always had this issue even in single instance

can you please elaborate on what do you consider to be "high load", say having a server with abt 700mb of (cached objects) would be considered light / medium or high load ?

I consider high load to be the number of requests ( GET,MGET,DEL) hitting a node not the actual size.  I will let you have some precise metrics once i have completed my destruction testing.  SC node currently falls over when the Max Threadpool thread limit is reached for the custom thread pool, i am speculating that requests build up in queue which then causes bottleneck and everything eventually falls over.
