64-bit ARM Unikernels on uKVM - Wei Chen, ARM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Unikernels are specialised machine images that are generated using Library Operating Systems, which have smaller footprints, no operating systems and accessing baremetal hardware directly. These desirable properties make Unikernels small, fast and secure. Most Unikernels are running on backends. This backend simplifies the difficulty of hardware support needed by Library Operating Systems, as well as provides established resource isolation.

A small modular monitor based on KVM called uKVM is such a backend whose functionality and interfaces are customized to the Unikernels. The 64-bit ARM Unikernels running on ARM64 needs uKVM support.

Wei Chen will:
Introduce the current status of 64-bit ARM Unikernels on uKVM.
Introduce the simpler I/O interfaces and performance boosts.
Compare the interfaces of uKVM, Container and Virtual Machine.
Discuss the problems need to be resolved.
