LynxSecure support announced for 2nd Generation Intel Core processor

Posted by John McHale

LAS VEGAS, Nev., 8 Jan. 2011. LynuxWorks, Inc., in San Jose, Calif., announced LynxSecure 4.0 support of the new second-generation Intel Core i7 and i5 processor families. LynxSecure is a separation kernel and embedded hypervisor that provides an environment in which multiple guest operating systems and their applications can execute at the same time, in their own virtual partitions.

"The 2nd generation Intel Core i7 and Core i5 processors deliver an incredible performance breakthrough by utilizing the latest innovations in multi-core processor and graphics technologies," says Robert Day the vice president of marketing for LynuxWorks, Inc. "The multi-core and virtualization support that LynxSecure offers for these next generation of Intel processors helps maximize the performance and security of applications running on a wide selection of virtualized guest operating systems."

"By supporting the latest Intel Core i7 and i5 processors at launch, LynuxWorks continues to offer developers the opportunity to utilize the advanced features that Intel provides in each new generation of our processors," says Matt Langman, director of product marketing for the Intel Embedded Computing Division. When paired with a hypervisor, like the LynxSecure separation kernel the "2nd generation Intel Core processors improve system performance without compromising security," he adds.

LynxSecure 4.0 is designed to maintain the highest levels of military security. It offers two virtualization schemes, para-virtualized guest such as Linux and LynxOS-SE offering maximum performance, and virtualized guest operating systems such as Windows, Solaris, and Chromium OS requiring no changes to the guest operating system. Another key feature that LynxSecure offers is the ability to run guest operating systems that have Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) capabilities. The new quad-core Intel Core i7 processor enable one of the guest operating systems to run across multiple cores.

The new generation of Intel Core processors offers a new microarchitecture and features multi-core processing showing an impressive leap in energy efficient performance using Intel Turbo Boost and Intel Hyper-Threading Technologies. In addition to being software compatible with previous IA-32 processors, the new processor families now include both an integrated graphics engine and a memory controller -- which gives developers a two-chip platform to use in designing virtualized solutions. These new embedded processors are aimed at meeting the needs of developers in retail, medical, gaming, military, and government, and energy industries.
