    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The objective of this deliverable is to describe the current architecture of the toolchain as well as the different tools that have been developed to build and orchestrate unikernels. The current toolchain contains two fully-functional tools (dependency analysis tool and automatic build tool) that have been tested with different schemes and configurations. Others tools are still in research and will be released in a next milestone.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;This deliverable contains updated report detailing the progress since the release of &lt;a href=""&gt;D4.1&lt;/a&gt;. It includes design of tools and host environment. We include measurements of current unikernel builds augmented by the use of current tools and discuss the development and deployment environment and support for extended features. A second release of the source code is also part of the deliverable.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The goal of the EU-funded UNICORE project is to develop a common code-base and toolchain that will enable software developers to rapidly create secure, portable, scalable, high-performance solutions starting from existing applications. The key to this is to compile an application into very light-weight virtual machines &amp;ndash; known as unikernels &amp;ndash; where there is no traditional operating system, only the specific bits of operating system functionality that the application needs. The resulting unikernels can then be deployed and run on standard high-volume servers or cloud computing infrastructure.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
