[Links of the day] 07/03/2016 : Unikernel single address spaces, Breaking stuff in production, 10 years of workload scheduling

  • Single address spaces : unikernel approach to use a single address space can provide a great deal of speed up however it requires to rethink the way code works. Its quite attractive but as the article explain, their is trade off. To be honest, I think that unikernel will be great for the whole synchronous programming model (spdk-dpdk-pmem, etc..), where we have a swarm of small highly optimized service tight to specific hardware consumed by other service on more generic compute infrastructure.
  • Breaking Things On Purpose : if you are not ready to brak stuff in production , your product is not ready.
