We've been doing some work on running an AG node using XEN. XEN is a  
machine virtualisation monitor, allowing a single machine to behave  
like multiple machines. The main advantage of running an AG node in  
this way is the ability keep the benefits of a multi-machine node,  
yet requiring only a single physical machine. In practice, this comes  
down to the separation of display and video capture functions. Anyone  
who has run a multi-camera single machine AG node will be aware of  
the useability nightmare in any except the smallest of meetings. This  
problem is completely solved by using XEN.
