NYLUG: Unikernels - What Are They Good For?

NYLUG: Unikernels - What Are They Good For?
Amir Chaudhry from the MirageOS team and Docker discusses the power of Unikernels.

Word of unikernels is beginning to spread, especially the benefits around their lean size and portability. This portability comes from using only the necessary libraries that an application needs, along with the ability to swap out those libraries to target different environments (e.g. x86, ARM, JavaScript, etc) — all without changing the application code.

This talk will present a brief overview of current methods of computing as well as the basics of unikernels. We'll then work through an example that demonstrates the benefits of using libraries this way, going from local development through to considering deployment. Such approaches will be important for things like IoT software development and distributed systems.
