Early unix mainframe computing brought elegant process and resource sharing systems which helped get more application use out of expensive hardware. These concerns have been largely been pushed aside in computing with the rise of desktop PCs, and large farms of ever-shrinking pizza boxes in the data center. Today, as more punch gets packed into 1u than ever, server resources can be further consolidated and abstracted to securely separate complex and sophisticated services in the same hardware server, by running secure virtual UNIX machines. FreeBSD Jails are a time-tested, secure, reliable UNIX virtual machine with endless uses.
