Red Hat has released a version of its Enterprise Linux 5 operating system that is capable of running various types of software platforms thanks to a built-in, kernel-based virtual machine hypervisor. Developed to run on IBM servers, the updated version of Linux is also certified to meet internationally recognized security standards.

The certification 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.
