Their reaction will most likely be based on your presentation of the virtual solution. Explain the benefits and flexibility as opposed to purchasing several physical machines. Present them side by side and perhaps even go as far as showing a demo.

An IT professional should provide due diligence when presenting a change in infrastructure operations etc. It has been my experience that you must clearly present both options with pros and cons of each and of include hard numbers. At the end of the day, YOU are the IT professional, not the CFO you are presenting to. It is our job to show him/her why it is more viable to move from physical to virtual.

Depending on budget and company, it usually turns out to be a no brainer.
