Simon Kuenzer (from NEC Laboratories), partner of the UNICORE Consortium, has participated at the 15thWorkshop on Virtualization in High-Performance Cloud Computing (VHPC ’20) on June 25th. The workshop was online and one day in length, composed of 20 minutes presentations, each followed by 10 min discussion sections, plus lightning talks that were limited to 5 minutes.
The VHPC aims to bring together researchers and industrial practitioners facing the challenges posed by virtualization in order to foster discussion, collaboration, mutual exchange of knowledge and experience, enabling research to ultimately provide novel solutions for virtualized computing systems of tomorrow.
Kuenzer, in his talk “Unikraft – A Unikernel Toolkit”, gave an update on the Unikraft open source project, an overview of all the exciting achievements and concluded 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.
