The UNICORE Project will be present at the Linaro Connect Virtual 2020 on 22-24 September. The Linaro Virtual Connect brings together industry and the open source engineering community to collaboratively develop software on Arm. Linaro provides the tools, Linux kernel quality and security needed for a solid foundation to innovate on. At the time, multiple companies were frequently trying to upstream the same code, causing fragmentation and delay to product deployments. Linaro was therefore formed to consolidate the Arm code base and provide a much-needed collaborative forum for companies to work together on foundational open source software on Arm.
Representative of NEC Labs Europe, Felipe Huici, will present the session “Towards Highly Specialized, POSIX-compliant Software Stacks with Unikraft”. In this talk, he will present Unikraft, a fully micro-library operating system and build tool which allows for building specialized OSes and software stacks targeting one application, while removing unneeded functionality. As a proof of concept, they port Unikraft to the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and to a Xilinx Ultra96-V2. On these boards, Unikraft is able to boot in 88-158 milliseconds, consume only hundreds of KBs of memory when running real-world applications such as NGINX and ML frameworks such as PyTorch, while providing visible reductions in power consumption compared to Linux distributions.
This talk will take place on September 22nd, 12:55 pm, and you will be able to watch it live online.
Don’t miss the opportunity to participate at the Linaro Connect Virtual 2020 this September!
