comment Is there any advantage to having more than 16 GB RAM on a Windows developer machine?
8 is a lot - if only 3 or 4 were being exercised at any one time I would suggest instead writing code to work against VMWare's API - so you could start/stop a group of machines depending on what testing your are about to perform.

Network latency can also be a factor - though I think testing your server in a VM is often valuable these days as so much infrastructure is being virtualized in the corporate world to reduce costs...
