Sure it's possible. Although running 5VMs on 10 machines may be the hard part!
Unless of course you mean 5VMs per machine...

Scaling is achieved in this case by load balancing. Read the appropriate how-to
for the webserver that is fronting your servlets. For example, the Apache-Tomcat
howto can be found here:

_jk-howto.html
