You can run a virtualized topology of Microsoft Lync Server 2010 in both small and enterprise topologies.
The small topology includes a virtualized Standard Edition server, along with optionally an Edge Server (either physical or virtualized) and Monitoring Server and Archiving Server (physical).
The enterprise topology includes a virtualized Front End pool, along with all other Lync Server 2010 roles running on either virtual or physical machines.
All virtualized topologies support all workloads, including Enterprise Voice.
For details, see Running in a Virtualized Environment in the Planning documentation.
