well - if you're serving 500mbit/s you don't want a virtualized  
probably i really need to create a more complicated vcl that allows to  
run all applications within the same cache space.

but still it's open how it is possible to reserve some GB of RAM for  
cache memory...

or is it really true that i need dedicated boxes for caching only?
