On Wednesday, we hosted a Docker Online Meetup that was all about Unikernels! Amir Chaudhry, Richard Mortier and Martin Lucina joined us and presented an overview on Unikernels including a demo of Unikernels and Docker. The recorded video and slides from the meetup are available to watch below. Unikernels are constructed by combining application code with only the operating system components necessary for that code to run. The result is a highly specialized, single-purpose application which can be deployed directly to the cloud or onto IoT-like devices. Unikernels reduce software complexity by only including code that is required, resulting in portable applications with much smaller footprints and fast boot times.
