Government Computer News, 5/14/12

A version of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 5 operating system—which is capable of running various types of software thanks to a built-in Kernel-based Virtual Machine hypervisor—has been certified to meet internationally recognized security standards. 

Developed to run in IBM servers, the modified version of Linux allows open source virtualization techniques to be deployed in homeland security applications, command and control systems, and across government agencies that had been limited by existing virtualization technologies.
