UniK: Isolating Processes and Reducing Complexity

Unikernels aren’t a new concept; the stripped-down, library-specific application machine images have been around for decades.  But unikernels are enjoying a renaissance thanks to cloud computing; they offer major efficiencies in resource use and provide a tiny attack service for nefarious online...

Understanding Unikernels

When we describe a typical operating system kernel on a typical machine (be it physical or virtual), we are normally talking about a distinct piece of software which runs in a separate processor mode (kernel mode) and address space from the rest of the software running on that machine. This...

A unikernel is essentially a pared-down operating system that can pair with an application into a unikernel application, typically running within a virtual machine. Download the Guide to the Open Cloud to learn more.

The Age of the Unikernel: 10 Open Source Projects to Know

When it comes to operating systems, container technologies, and unikernels, the trend toward tiny continues. What is a unikernel? It is essentially a pared-down operating system (the unikernel) that can pair with an application into a unikernel application, typically running within a virtual...

Debunking Unikernel Criticisms

The security and tooling worries around unikernels are vastly exaggerated, asserted Idit Levine, creator of the Unik, a unikernel compilation tool, as well as a cloud chief technology officer at Dell EMC. A relatively new concept, Unikernels could be thought of as stripped-down containers with only...
