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...

5 Cool Unikernels Projects

Unikernels are poised to become the next big thing in microservices after Docker containers. Here’s a look at some of the cool things you can do with unikernels. First, though, here’s a quick primer on what unikernels are, for the uninitiated. Unikernels are similar to containers in that they let...

Syslog, A Tale Of Specifications

The advantage of a unikernel work cycle is many-fold. You get performance benefits from not having a memory management unit or Kernel/User boundary and the attack surface is greatly minimized as all system dependencies are compiled with your application logic. Don’t use a file-system in your...

What Containers and Unikernels Can Learn from Arduino and Raspberry Pi

I had always viewed Arduinos and Raspberry Pi as these cool, little, specialized devices that can be used to make all kinds of fun gadgets. I came from the software side of the world and have always considered Linux on x86 and x86-64 "general purpose." The truth is, Arduinos are not specialized. In...
