Congrats to Mininet SIGCOMM 2018 Hackathon Winners!

Congratulations to Alexander Jung, Michał Król and Torsten Runge, who prototyped a Mininet node class for launching unikernels - small application-specific kernel images, basically an application linked with a library OS, ClickOS being one example - and ended up placing in the SIGCOMM 2018 Hackathon!

In their case they used Rumprun as the unikernel system and qemu/kvm to launch it.

They are planning on continuing to work on it, so I hope we can get something simple and useful running and perhaps added to Mininet!
