Here's the catch: While you might have adequate capacity for some types of resources such as CPU and memory, the VMs may not cooperate in the areas of others, such as disk and network. Keep in mind that the VMs don't have any idea of what's running on the host (or on other VMs, for that matter). I recommend you try the configuration you've outlined, ideally in a test environment, and that you monitor overall performance. If everything's running smoothly, you should be fine in production. Good luck!
