Hi David,

I am also using KVM and VM for the backuppc running on Ubuntu 12.04. It can run without issues but based on my observatio, you need to roughly allocate 1 core for 1 client that requires backup. For example if you have 10 clients then its better to allocate 10 cores. 

I got this through the NMON monitoring when multiple jobs are running at the same time.

You can control CPU/disk IO by limiting the number of jobs that run in parallel. You'll also find better efficiency by using OpenVZ rather than KVM.

For a very nice KVM/OpenVZ interface, check out proxmox (http://www.proxmox.com/)
