DeferPanic Announces Industry's First Managed Unikernel Platform
DeferPanic has announced their launch of the industry's first and only managed unikernel platform available for both public and private cloud environments as the industry rapidly moves towards a hybrid cloud reality. Unikernels, considered the successor to containers, promise dramatically improved security with a 1000X less attack surface, and enable leading organizations in sectors such as fintech and energy to embrace microservices and devops more effectively. Unikernels also massively reducing virtual machine utilization by running hundreds to thousands of virtual machines on one commodity server saving companies an order of magnitude in infrastructure costs.

Unikernels are an emerging infrastructure choice but until now there weren't any managed or supported platforms available leaving developer teams to struggle their way through.

CEO of DeferPanic, Ian Eyberg recently presented their ability to run unmodified Go programs at the O'Reilly OSCon in Austin, Tx. DeferPanic was the first company to produce a Go unikernel and the first company to offer a managed unikernel platform. Eyberg mentioned that, "Unikernels offer an unrivaled opportunity for organizations to take back control of their own cloud environments, save tremendous amounts of money and offer VM consolidation that containers simply can not do. Unikernels are the cloud of the future."
