it is just your work. As there is still only a single kernel running, there is no real difference.

But you must maintain every jail as every jail uses its own world.

I use jails once in a while. They give a good feeling and do not cost much to setup.

But - a big but - you must make sure that the data stays consistant over the jails. Jailing a webserver is not a problem. But putting file-servers for different protocols into different jails might be a problem. Letting different jails run accessing the same data, does not make sense for me.
