Links of the day 10/11/2015: #containers, #Unikernel & #virtualization power consumption, security, and streamlined

  • Qubes with Rumprun : Interesting application of unikernel to deliver greater security at speed. the goal is to reduce the possible attack surface while maximizing performance.
  • Power Consumption of Virtualization Technologies: empirical Investigation that confirm a lot of what we knew already, virtualization power consumption is higher than container.
  • Vagga : containerisation tool without daemons. Slim down streamline version of container. No deamons or other process to run to support it. Looks like a solid contender to docker and other vagrant.
