The vision of MIKELANGELO project is to make virtual infrastructures ready to run big data, high performance computing, and I/O intensive applications in production.
Cloud and HPC architectures are inefficient. Layers, introduced by legacy and compatibility requirements, result in complexity of software execution, set-up, management and security. MIKELANGELO is targeting the sweet-spot between efficiency, stability and security.
We focus on lowest layers of virtual infrastructure – on virtual IO in the hypervisor (KVM), guest (unikernel – OSv) and between them (virtual RDMA – vRDMA).
