I'll soon buy myself a nice server (something like the quad-cpu HP DL585) for personal use (home related stuff, data-mining projects, web server and some cron jobs), and I wonder how to separate all those tasks into dedicated environments.
I'm used to FreeBSD & Linux server administration and virtualization setups (Xen & VmWare), so virtualization came quite naturally. But as I plan to use FreeBSD, I can also use jails (I'm not interested in running any other OS than FreeBSD).
But I lack experience in FreeBSD jails, and never planned to use them before. So I'm looking for some experience return and perhaps for someone with experience in both domains who could advise me on which one would be best suited for my humble needs.
