Xen Project Hypervisor Headed for Space as DornerWorks Begins Phase I SBIR Project with NASA
One of the reasons DornerWorks is focusing on the Xen Project hypervisor is for its portability. This bare metal hypervisor is not dependent on the Linux operating systems. It uses only 47,000 lines of code, and a much easier component to certify for safety standards like DO-178C or ISO-26262 than the 25 million lines in play in the Linux kernel.
