Re: [tlug] VMs vs. Containers

Where app-specific VMs can still be great are with [unikernels] built
with systems like [MirageOS]. The idea here is that you build your
"kernel" code and your application code together in a single binary
that is then the kernel you boot in a hypervisor partition. This can
offer some incredible performance benefits, particularly because you
can usually do away with strict separation of the kernel and user
portions of system meaning you no longer have to make lots of
expensive transitions across that kernel/userland boundary.

MirageOS looks interesting. Is that something you would be interested in doing a talk on?
