Rump kernels were named by the Xen project as one of the "7 Unikernel Projects to take on Docker in 2015". On top of rump kernels we have built the rumprun software stack, which runs real-world software such as Nginx, PHP, and MySQL as unikernels on Xen, today.

In his presentation, Martin will demonstrate the ease of deploying unmodified, existing applications as unikernels on Xen with rumprun.

He will present his experience and lessons learned over the last few months from "dogfooding" rumprun by migrating existing production services from a traditional monolithic Linux system to a set of cooperating unikernels, and discuss the challenges involved and future work needed to address them.

Going forward, he will make the case that more collaboration between unikernel projects will enable interesting deployments with benefits to users and developers.
