UNICORE member and representative of NEC Laboratories, Felipe Huici, will be present at the session 1 with the paper “Unikraft: Fast, Specialized Unikernels the Easy Way”, at the online EuroSys Conference on April 27th at 10.30 am.
EuroSys is a premier international forum for presenting computer systems research, broadly construed. This year’s edition will be held online in 26th – 29th April 2021. This 16th edition of EuroSys will follow the pattern established by the previous EuroSys conferences, by seeking papers on all aspects of computer systems.
In his talk, he will give an update on the Unikraft Linux Foundation open source project, a fully modular and librarized unikernel that aims to provide outstanding performance while making it easy to port off-the-shelf applications into unikernels. In particular, he will go into details on how Unikraft fully modularizes OS primitives so that it is easy to customize the unikernel and include only relevant components, exposes a set of composable, performance-oriented APIs in order to make it easy for developers to obtain high performance and aims for POSIX compatibility, already supporting over 130+ syscalls.
