Golang Unikernel Is Reality!

Back in January of 2018 I blogged on LinkedIn asking the question if golang would enable development of micro-kernels.

Today I saw that someone has posted exactly that: EggOS. I am excited to play with it, and especially if you can couple that to AWS Firecracker. Firecracker is a service that allows you to “launch lightweight micro-virtual machines (microVMs) in non-virtualized environments in a fraction of a second.” It’s open source, developed by AWS.

This can potentially RADICALLY change how micro-services-on-demand can be delivered. More to come!
