Unikernels

Better Understanding

Hi,
I am a unikernel newbie but always want to stay on top of emerging technology. I currently use containers and cloud infrastructure for most everything. All of my containers are small (Golang mostly) and are built “From Scratch”. This means that most of my containers are around 7-10 MB and can scale very easily. In addition, building these scratch containers can help to mitigate security concerns as it removes most of the ancillary OS Level Vulnerabilities.

My question is really an attempt to fully understand the benefits and the market value and thought that you guys could help. What are the major benefits that Unikernels would be bringing that I couldn’t get from very lightweight and secure containers.

Thank you very much and apologies for such a basic level question.
