We're on a mission to change virtualization forever.

If you're running services using public cloud infrastructure, then you're already overspending on your deployments. Typical virtual service deployments are over-priced by as much as 50%. Unikraft is on a mission to reduce cloud compute bills, increase performance and security.

A Deep Tech Start-up

Unikraft is backed by over 9 years of award-winning research in the areas of virtualization, unikernels and containers. The team launched the start-up with a strong belief that the way clouds are currently run, and workloads on them deployed, while convenient, are extremely inefficient — leading to large cloud spend, less-than-secure deployments and a larger than desired energy footprint.

Leveraging open source and based on an open-core model, Unikraft is on a mission to fundamentally shake the way deployments are done in the cloud. If you are frustrated with large cloud spend, painful cold boots, slow autoscale or any number of other cloud inefficiencies drop us a line and join us on our adventure.


At Unikraft, we’re building a team where amazing people can do their best work. We’re a welcoming, friendly and a full-of-energy engineering team ranging from kernel to frontend and every stack in between. As a remote-first company, we often meetup on retreats or at conferences and we contribute heavily to open-source.
