Do you have a "get started"?


#1

Hi!

I saw your video at DockerCon and your meetup on youtube.
I’m a sysadmin, and I’d like to know how to get started with unikernel. I’d like to setup a little POC, or maybe just host MySQL with it.

My question is: Where is the “Get started” section :slightly_smiling:

I know it is early days, but it is to start the discussion!

All the best!

Hi and sorry for the delay in getting back to you!

The demos at DockerCon (and the Docker Online meetup) used the Rumprun unikernel. The original set of code was released shortly after DockerCon EU but @mato has been working on it since then. You’ll find an updated post at Docker-unikernel-runner -- build and run rumprun unikernels as Docker containers (please do comment there with feedback on how things go!)

You’re right that it’s early days and we’re still working towards a consistent ‘getting-started’ experience. There are a lot of unikernel projects out there so the instructions for each tend to vary. I expect there will be a lot of rough edges for a while but things will improve over time.

Best wishes,
Amir :slight_smile:
