Is it really cheaper?

In a PM to Jon, I said the whole story reminds me a bit of vmware.

When we need 100 WWW servers, we can setup a single machine with vmware,
which then emulates 100 virtual ones -
and install an own OS and WWW server on each one.

Or we can use Apache and configure it for 100 tenants.

What is cheaper?

What is easier?

"Virtualisation" is sometimes nothing else than a denial of cleaning up.
And keeping redundant and unnecessary stuff forever and ever.
