USENIX LISA Conference: UNICORE presentation

UNICORE member from NEC Laboratories, Felipe Huici, presented at the USENIX LISA Conference 2021 the paper “It’s Time to Debloat the Cloud with Unikraft”, on June 3rd at 12 pm PDT (9 pm CET).

LISA21 took place as a virtual event on June 1–3, 2021. LISA is the premier conference for operations professionals, where sysadmins, systems engineers, IT operations professionals, SRE practitioners, developers, IT managers, and academic researchers share real-world knowledge about designing, building, securing, and maintaining the critical systems of our interconnected world.

On the presentation “It’s Time to Debloat the Cloud with Unikraft”, Huici presented the Linux Foundation Unikraft project, a build tool and framework for seamlessly generating extremely efficient yet high performance cloud-ready images that are each tailored to the needs of specific applications. Their evaluation using off-the-shelf applications such as nginx, SQLite, and Redis shows that running them on Unikraft results in a 1.7x-2.7x performance improvement compared to Linux guests.
