Simon Kuenzer, from NEC Laboratories, a partner of the UNICORE Consortium, will participate at FOSDEM’20, a two-day event organised by volunteers to promote the widespread use of free and open source software.
Kuenzer will give a presentation on “Unikraft: A Unikernel Toolkit” on Sunday, February 2nd from 16:00-16:25 in K.4.601 Room.
In this talk, Kuenzer will give an update on the Unikraft open source project. Unikraft is a toolkit for creating specialized unikernels and it aims to remove the need for time-consuming, expert work. He will give an overview of all the exciting achievements and conclude with an outlook of recent project directions. The aim is that Unikraft will represent a step forward towards wider adoption of unikernels beyond the research community.
Simon is a systems researcher passionate about virtualization and Unikernels. He’s been at NEC Labs for the past 7 years and has expertise in operating systems, virtualization, and networking. In addition, he is the lead maintainer of Unikraft, a Xen incubation project.
