In​ ​recent​ ​years unikernels have​ ​shown​ ​immense​ ​performance potential​ (e.g., throughout in the range of 10-40 Gb/s, 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 this talk, we will describe our recent port of DPDK to Unikraft, as well as present early performance numbers from running DPDK in a unikernel.
