VMware virtual machines can be suspended IIRC. But then the panomnicom could
only be run on machines with it installed on, which probably only makes that
Besides, there is also the already mentioned problem of the resources that
can't be saved, network resources being probably the most proeminent - not
only the connections break suddenly, but the new environment may be
completely different (IP adress, firewalling policies, etc)
I'm sure you already thought about this, but they may be worth mentioning
