With HW partitioning we slice the server into several isolated components (cpu, power supply, storage, etc). The bus server is splitted into a logical way, so is presented to the OS as a specific hardware unit.
Example of this architecture are the M5, M6 , E6500 Sparc Lines of servers

Some benefits
- High Isolation
- Different OS versions

Some disadvantages
- Expensive and propietary hardware
With OS partitioning we can have moderate isolation and similar OS versions installed.
The guest domains share the OS kernel and some common OS resources
One examples of this technologies are Solaris Containers/Zones and FreeBSD Jails. They offer scalability at an affordable price, not so tied to hardware arquitecture
