I'd look at your requirements first.  While we use bhyve extensively here,
the current provisioning tools might not be up to your requirements.  Bhyve
and ZFS zvols work great for us, simplistic and easy to investigate is
something goes wrong (though nothing has gone wrong).

Using Xen may fit better into an existing Xen environment.
