Hi @flokaiser 

I’ve checked the FAQ for Content Index and Search Engine, but not really found anything concrete for in place OS upgrades.

There is a process to move the search engine, index and web server roles to other servers if this is more of a hardware refresh task, which would avoid the need to create new and re run content indexing.

Is it possible to virtualize the hardware as well?

@flokaiser , I’m not seeing anything that says you can’t go virtual, just be sure to check out the hardware requirements as they can be demanding, depending on your usage:
