Debian not enterprise ready?
are you joking?

Been using debian in several Dell, HP, Sun servers running for years
The only difference I see between Debian and Red Hat it's the paid support.
Although I have nothing against Red hat, it's great also.
PVE runs smoothly on a couple Dell 1950's also without any issue.

As someone stated before try using only one virtual processor using KVM.

Cheers.
