The concept of unikernels is gaining recognition in both academia and industry as “the next logical step” in the evolution from virtual machines to containers. A popularized definition of unikernels state that they are “single address space machine images constructed by using library operating systems”. What does that really mean? Do we need to clarify? In this talk we introduce IncludeOS, a recent addition to the growing family of unikernels, and use it as a basis for a discussion about how models of computation and principles of virtualization and emulation might be relevant in determining what is and what isn’t a unikernel.
