Strategic Goals

The goal is to enable EU players to lead the next generation of cloud computing services and technology by creating a common code base from which to build unikernels, and develop tools that will make the creation of such unikernels easier.

Solutions Developed / Used

Unicore addresses its goals by (1) providing a common code base and tools for code reusability, (2) by developing tools for verification and validation of the generated software, (3) through transparently handling of cross-platform dependencies and by (4) accelerating the full software lifecycle by fully automating several of its stages.
