NanoVMs

Brief Overview

NanoVMs makes software to help create and deploy unikernels. Quoting from unikernel.org, “Unikernels are specialised, single-address-space machine images constructed by using library operating systems. They are built by compiling high-level languages directly into specialised machine images that run directly on a hypervisor, such as Xen, or on bare metal.” Unikernels are an alternative to containers.
