Designed for today’s generation of cloud infrastructure, NanoVMs is a Silicon Valley based deep-tech company- literally upending 50 years of operating system hegemony:
"The OS was built for cloud-based computing like AWS and GCP utilizing a unikernel approach which takes up minimal resources and space, all while improving application speed and computer security. NanoVMs offers software solutions, subscription services, and technical support from industry experts."
Instead of using technologies such as Docker/Kubernetes, NanoVMs runs Linux software faster and safer than Linux through Unikernels:
"NanoVMs uses unikernels, which are designed to run a single-program as an OS. Unikernels are single process machine images. Unlike the Windows or Linux OS, unikernels prevent multiple programs from running, which in turn prevents attackers from running their own software on your server."
