User Group - Microservices and Containers Austin - UniK: Unikernel compiler and runtime

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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.
