UNICORE Use Case: Smart Contract Execution on Unikernels

A smart contract is a program that keeps state of promises that are executed when the involved parties fulfill the terms. The main challenges for smart contracts in a blockchain environment are ensuring deterministic execution support, because all participants need to be able to verify the result of a smart contract; safe running of untrusted code, to avoid security issues on the nodes involved in the system; and handling the interaction between smart contracts.

UNICORE Use Case: Home Automation/IoT

Offloading IoT platform controllers to the cloud is not a new area, yet valid privacy concerns raised by clouds run in different jurisdictions hamper offloading, forcing IoT systems to install hardware in the home to control IoT devices, and reducing economic efficiency. Federated, smaller clouds are a key direction of EU development that aims to enable such offloading to nearby clouds thus retaining the privacy of European users and ensuring compliance to EU general data protection regulation.

UNICORE Use Case: SDWAN Key Server Controller as Unikernel

For operators and service providers, the holy grail of a Network Function Virtualization (NFV) implementation is the ability to dynamically provision network components, services and applications in a matter of minutes rather than the weeks or months it takes to do so now. With boot-times in the order of milliseconds, unikernels will provide disrupting NFV solutions.

Several separate NFV application domains will be explored in UNICORE:

UNICORE Use Case: PacketCloud Pause Resume

Serverless computing platforms such as Amazon EC2’s lambda services are taking the cloud world by storm, and more cloud providers are beginning to offer them.

However, the current implementations either use containers (being thus insecure) or rely on full blown VMs which makes them highly inefficient.

UNICORE technology and APIs will be used to enable novel serverless computing.

Correct Networks has integrated unikernels in PacketCloud, an edge serverless computing platform it has developed.
