Unikernel is a novel software technology that links an application with OS in the form of a library and packages them into a specialized image that facilitates direct deployment on a hypervisor. There are already open source projects supporting this technology: OSv, Rumprun etc.
Unikernels are facing three major challenges:
This presentation will discuss how Linux can be converted to a Unikernel with the primary target of resource constrained IoT devices.
While existing Unikernels match the resource constraints of IoT devices, they lack wide hardware support, proper power management and Real-Time properties.
The talk gives an introduction to Unikernel Realtime Linux and aims to foster a discussion about the possible solutions to make Unikernels successful in the IoT space.
