Nothing, but, as always, your mileage will vary.

Success will depend on your hardware (and
virtualization solution).  If your hardware is
sufficiently capable a VM can perform at
essentially native speed and all devices
(including usb, disk, network, gpu, and ethernet
devices) can be used in dedicated "passthrough"
modes.  In the cases of advanced network
and gpu devices with sr-iov support, one can
even share those devices with other VM's
and the host itself at near native capabilities.
For many resources that do not have high
performance or low latency requirements the
thin virtualization layers can work well.
