Try VirtualBox for full virtualization.  Works pretty good in headless mode.
I don't use the Web GUI but I know it has one.  VB does full USB passthru as

If you don't need to try new kernels, look at LXC (Linux Containers).
Pretty good for running different distros with a good set of resource
management using the kernel's cgroups.  Sort of like chroot on steroids.
