I’m doing a Computer Science masters in Dublin City University majoring in Cloud Computing. I’ve been working as a developer/devop on a python/django web app for about 2 years.
I’m very interested in the future of unikernels and how they apply to cloud web deployments and IoT devices.
My Practicum proposal which I’ve been working on over the past few weeks covers a lit review of the work of MirageOS, OSv, RumpKernel, Ling etc, and also the history of exokernels.
My research plan is pretty basic and not very focused, its basically to start playing around with unikernels, benchmark them, compare them for ease of developer migration etc.
I’d also like to contribute to unikernels in any way I can as part of my thesis, but I have no experience in C/OCaml/Go.
Any one have any pointers or ideas of additional content I can contribute/research as part of my thesis?
