Should every server be virtualized?

Frequently, I meet with people who are considering virtualizing servers in a number of different scenarios. These can be organizations that are just getting started with virtualization, which can be a big change in light of shrinking budgets and limited supporting infrastructure such as shared storage. Another situation is virtualizing the difficult servers. The low-hanging fruit was easy for early adopters to virtualize the datacenter, but there are plenty of more challenging systems left. This includes servers with a large amount of local storage, limited amounts of downtime or systems that are incredibly sensitive. The last situation is the organization that is on the brink of being 100% virtualized.
