IncludeOS is a minimal, open source, unikernel operating system for cloud services and IoT. IncludeOS allows users to run C++ applications in the cloud without an operating system. IncludeOS adds operating system functionality to an application allowing oneself to create a 'virtual machine' for an application.
IncludeOS applications boot in tens of milliseconds and require only a few megabytes of disk and memory.
