altLynuxWorks (San Jose, CA) has released the LynxSecure 5.0 separation kernel and hypervisor that offers 64-bit and Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) guest OS virtualization support. The release has also added a device sharing facility for systems with limited physical devices that complements the existing direct device assignment mechanism that has been available in previous versions. It utilizes 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors, along with Intel hardware functions such as the Extended Page Tables (EPT), Page Attribute Table (PAT), and Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX). It is also able to run 64-bit fully virtualized guest OSes with SMP enabled, allowing developers the opportunity to securely host off-the-shelf OSes and applications on the same system as real-time operating systems (RTOSes) and legacy applications.
