Unikernels are specialized virtual machine images containing application code and only those part of operating system the application actually needs to operate. They provide many benefits compared to a traditional OS, including improved security, smaller footprints, more optimization and faster boot times. This talk will introduce the concept of unikernels and immutable infrastructure explaining how unikernels work and how to use them to optimize the resources application uses while running. A demo will be presented to show how to build and deploy java application as a unikernel application - bundled with its own specialized operating system.
