Unikernel Summit

Docker and containers have gotten a lot of attention lately for their small size and easy deployment. But Unikernels offer even smaller sizes and huge advances in security! In the next generation of cloud, these are critical assets, so it is no wonder that Unikernels are beginning to draw serious interest.

In this event held at Texas Linux Fest, we will first discuss why Unikernels are important for the future of our industry, and then developers and users of various Unikernel systems will talk about the details of using various Unikernels. This event is focused on users with little or no experience with Unikernels, so all are welcome to attend!

Presentations will include HowTos for using OSv, Rump Kernels, MirageOS, and more. Xen Project is organizing the event because we seek to develop innovative technologies for virtualization and cloud. Many of these Unikernel systems have leveraged the Xen Project Hypervisor because we enable these small, secure workloads which will be needed in the next generation cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), and other new forms of computing.

Join us at Texas Linux Fest during their Tutorial Day as we talk about using Unikernels!
