UniK is an open-source tool written in Go for compiling applications into unikernels and deploying those unikernels across a variety of cloud providers, embedded devices (IoT), as well as a developer laptop or workstation. UniK utilizes a simple docker-like command-line interface, making developing on unikernels as easy as developing on containers. UniK ’s convenient REST API makes integrating UniK with orchestration tools a breeze. To demonstrate the value of cluster management of unikernels, we implemented a UniK runtime for Kubernetes, making Kubernetes the first cluster manager to support unikernels. This integration allows UniK to take advantage of core Kubernetes features like horizontal scaling, automated rollouts and rollbacks, storage orchestration, self-healing, service discovery, load balancing and batch execution.

On top of it all, UniK offers a highly pluggable and scalable architecture, allowing developers to add support for new processor architectures, programming languages, unikernel compilers, and cloud providers with ease.
