Join us for the next Docker LA Meetup hosted by Cisco. Jerome will be speaking about Data Orchestration and the super secret announcement you have all been waiting for is that Amir Chaudhry and Richard Mortier will be presenting on Unikernels!

News was released this morning that the Cambridge, UK-based company, Unikernel Systems has joined Docker! Unikernels are lean, single address space, machine images that are constructed by using library operating systems. By combining application code with only the necessary components of a traditional OS, developers can create services which benefit from improved security, smaller footprints and fast boot times.
