Both hardware-assisted software virtualization and paravirtualization have benefits and drawbacks. With the recent changes in hardware, the software and the technology are changing at a rapid pace.
Currently there are three major types of virtualization: full software, hardware-assisted software, and paravirtualization. Full software virtualization and hardware-assisted software virtualization are very similar as no additional coding or configuration is required (except perhaps to enable virtualization in the BIOS). The main comparison, therefore, really falls between hardware-assisted software virtualization and paravirtualization.
