64bit ARM-based SoC devices offer a compelling alternative as embedded, low power edge devices to their traditional x86 counterparts. There are some limitations, however, that have attracted the attention of the virtualisation community including improving multi-tenancy support and providing isolation. We propose to lead a discussion around the status and future design considerations of MiniOS on aarch64 in order to fully exploit the low footprint of unikernels towards NFV-type workloads as Reusable Function Blocks (RFBs) that are promoted in the H2020 SUPERFLUIDITY project. Additionally we would like to discuss the relevant benefits of the miniOS approach vs Native App execution in EL0 on ARM.
