Organizations most prefer unikernels as it assists in running applications faster. However, one question arises, “How did unikernel become what it is today?”

It can be stated that unikernel strengthens productivity from servers harder, supported by the IT shops on a vast scale. This allows the maximum usage of server hardware and cloud computing. 

According to Anil Madhavapeddy and David J. Scott, unikernels are restructuring the entire VMs (Virtual Machines). Moreover, which includes entire kernels and user space code into transportable components.

These are reusable, safe, flexible, and apt for library operating systems.

Unikernels encompass umpteenth benefits in businesses and companies of all shapes and sizes. And NanoVMs’s unikernel ensures that Linux software performs faster and in the safest way possible. 

It is noteworthy that NanoVMs are faster, safer, and deliver unparalleled security in contrast to the competitors in the marketplace.

With its unikernel-based infrastructure, this disruptive technology ensures that a company’s data is not breached and exploited at any time.

NanoVMs are removing the obsolete platforms used by ONG organizations, governments, and BFSIs.

It understands that two operating systems are used simultaneously when software is positioned in a public cloud, including AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure.

These two operating systems are the host (managed by the cloud) and second is the guest (DevOps/SREs).

What’s more, unikernel was brought to life to run the necessary and required application at a time rather than using Linux.

Several positive aspects were witnessed during the process, such as increased performance, safety and security, and ease of use.

NanoVMs monitored Go and Rust web servers are running approximately 300 percent faster on AWS and 200 percent faster on GCP.

There are no concepts of users, shells, passwords, remote login, and additional features on unikernel. Which makes the probability of an attack 10th of a percent compared to Linux. 

An additional remarkable feature of NanoVMs is that the user cannot run another program in the same time frame apart from the one required.

This does not diminish all safety setbacks; however, it reduces the fervor to attack.

This feature is prevalent in other software that runs multiple programs simultaneously and installs a crypto miner or dumps a database.

The CEO of NanoVMs, Ian Eyberg, explains,

“Breaking into a server is just like breaking into a house. The criminal might’ve kicked in the door or come through a side window, but that’s not why they are there. They are there for your guns, money, and flat-screen TVs. It’s the same thing when hackers break into servers. Attackers could care less about your software – they want to run their software – that could be as simple as stealing the database or mining elicit cryptocurrency. The trick with unikernels is that they are only designed to run a single program as a virtual machine. There isn’t support to run multiple programs on the same virtual machine.”

Thus it can be concluded that NanoVMs, a Silicon Valley deep-tech company, has instilled faith in the companies that cybersecurity is an investment that reaps fruit in the long run.

With a 0.1% attack surface, 27k lines of code, one executable, and eight libraries, it delivers unparalleled security, performance, useability, and lower infrastructure cost.

These promising chief aspects give NanoVMs exclusivity and are gaining momentum persistently.
