Dear Miragers, I'd like to introduce Takayuki Imada, who is joining the Cambridge Computer Lab this week as a visitor for a year-long sabbatical from Hitachi in Japan.
Takayuki describes himself as a "software virtualisation guy" and the goal of his sabbatical is to experiment with various platforms for integrating unikernel tech, and particularly MirageOS, into network devices (including ARM as well as x86). As part of this, he will taking a close look at the Mirage networking subsystem and how technologies such as SR-IOV passthrough can link up with the various Mirage backends (such as Xen where hardware passthrough is relatively mature, and newer backends such as Solo5 where some work needs to happen on Linux KVM and FreeBSD for equivalent functionality). His first step is starting to learn OCaml, and he attended the ICFP tutorial that Mindy and Gemma ran recently. He is now using Real World OCaml as his reference text, so please do assist him with any questions he might have while we plug the documentation gaps in Mirage3. If you're a network hacker (or otherwise!) feel free to find him in the CUCL in FW01. Welcome Takayuki! regards Anil _______________________________________________ MirageOS-devel mailing list MirageOSfirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.xenproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/mirageos-devel
