As next generation containers, unikernels are an executable image that can run natively on a hypervisor without the need for a separate operating system. Just like containers, unikernels need packaging and orchestration.

Unik is an open source project providing compilation of libraries and applications into unikernels - lightweight bootable disk images). Unik also functions as an orchestration system for unikernels, handling unikernel scheduling and health monitoring.

We’ll walk through a project overview and demo of how Unik integrates as a backend to Cloud Foundry, as a runtime engine for Kubernetes, compute driver for OpenStack and other platforms. Unik utilizes a simple Docker-like command line interface, making building unikernels as easy as building containers.
