My First Unikernel

I wanted to make a simple REST service for queuing file uploads, deployable as a virtual machine. The traditional way to do this is to download a Linux cloud image, install the software inside it, and deploy that. Instead I decided to try a unikernel.

Instead of automated install, I chose advanced install so I could see what was going on. It was a pure Debian installer experience.

Once you installed everything successfully and rebooted your system, you will be greeted with typical Grub and Gnome login screen and there are four options – default Xsession, Steam OS, Gnome 3 Shell and Gnome Classic. I chose Gnome Shell just for the sake of checking it out.
