Yeah, But Jail offers no real segmentation of resource utilization and
certainly no simple management interface to hand to customers.

At least not back in 2006 when I was using them on a 4.x system, where none
of the jails survived a simple upgrade (from like 4.9 to 4.10 or something I
don't remember).

A great tool for testing and such, but I just didn't find it could do what I
needed (real resource segmentation and control).

How's virtualbox coming along?  Does it have FreeBSD host support yet?
Anyone using it in production?

Thats a loaded question. Some might say that Freebsd has been a leading in
virtualization ( jail(8) for example). Support for Zen Dom0 is coming along
nicely it seems. If you want VMware hosting support, not really sure what to
say there. VMware server is a linux kernel..
starting to get into the middle of linux land if you go down the VMware
