Today the Datanauts embark on a weight loss program for the compute stack by getting into unikernels.
Rather than standing up a full operating system, how about packaging your application to run as a binary that can be created in an immutable fashion and updated in a snap? That’s idea behind unikernels.
In particular, we’re looking at one effort called IncludeOS. Our guest is Per Buer, the CEO of IncludeOS. We’ll talk about how unikernels differ from a traditional OS, their benefits and tradeoffs, use cases for the technology, and more. Per also gives an overview of the IncludeOS software.
