Teralab Reboots (2016)

SlapOS: a Hyperconvergent OS that really works

  • Deployed since 2009
  • Only two software components: ERP5 (billing) and slapgrid (devops)
  • Everything is a service (VM, DB, storage, CDN, etc.)
  • Convergence and promise based
  • From embedded device to teramemory servers
  • Portable to any POSIX OS
  • Solves Linux Kernel private API mismatch (unlike LXC)
  • R&D costs: < 2 M€ (vs. 4 B$ for OpenStack)
