It's a proper virtual machine, not like jail(8).  Check
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_virtual_machines for a list
of alternatives.

QEMU can read and write vmdk files, so you may have an easy migration
path.  But if your issue is speed, have you looked at the kqemu-kmod
port?  It's the bit that allows guest code to run directly on the host
cpu.  YMMV, but it seems to allow QEMU to run Windows guests at about
the same speed as VMWare.  http://qemu.org/qemu-accel.html for details.
