LynxOS® is a POSIX® general-purpose, feature-rich, multi-core hard real-time real time operating system. 
LynxOS® has been deployed in millions of embedded devices and has operated reliably for 30+ years across multiple safety- and security-critical embedded markets.  It is a tried and true approach for hosting applications on a Unix-like OS model wherein all resources and application services are centrally managed by a common kernel and is best-suited for working with hardware architectures that predate virtualization.
