The Next Generation Cloud: Unleashing the Power of the Unikernel
Russell Pavlicek, Xen Project Evangelist
Docker & containers have sparked much excitement over the concept of small, easily deployable VMs. But unikernels create even smaller VMs with much higher security than container-based solutions. The next generation cloud can leverage unikernels to do more in a smaller footprint while actually increasing overall security, while the cloud model will expand to include the concept of transient microservices.
Currently employed by Citrix as the Evangelist for Xen Project, Russell has spent two decades evangelizing Open Source. Since his introduction to Linux in 1995, he has relentlessly promoted the concept of Open Source to anyone who would listen.
He has over 150 pieces published, including columns for Infoworld and Processor magazines and one book. He has spoken at over 75 Open Source conferences, including most of the biggest Linux conferences in North America.
