In​ ​recent​ ​years unikernels have​ ​shown​ ​immense​ ​performance potential​ (e.g., boot times of only a few ms, image sizes of only hundreds of KBs).The​ ​fundamental​ ​drawback​ ​of​ ​unikernels​ ​is​ ​that​ ​they​ ​require​ ​that applications​ ​be​ ​manually​ ​ported​ ​to​ ​the​ ​underlying​ ​minimalistic​ ​OS, needing​ ​both​ ​expert​ ​work​ ​and​ ​often​ ​considerable​ ​amount of​ ​time.​

The Unikraft project provides a unikernel code base and build system that significantly simplifies the building of unikernels. In addition to support for a number CPU architectures, languages and frameworks, Unikraft provides debugging and tracing features that are generally sorely missing from unikernel projects. In this talk we will talk about these features, show a set of preliminary performance numbers, and provide a roadmap for the project's future.
