Submission + - Is a Virtual Firewall ready for use in production?

hunte writes: I'm planning a server/network infrastructure upgrade. I manage a couple of web servers (with circa 300 small/medium web sites), one database server, one mail server and an OpenBSD firewall on a 10 mbps line. I want to consolidate all my old servers into a single "big piece of iron" powered by some virtualization software (like VmWare, XEN, etc... is not the point).
Is a good choice using this virtual machine infrastructure also for the firewall?
Of course, the virtual machine host will be totally fault tolerant and redundant.
