Reasons to Invest

NanoVMs is building a patented new operating system, after 50 years of the same server-side operating system architecture.
NanoVMs has received revenue from the U.S. Airforce, including an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity Contract (up to potentially $950M in value) for U.S. Air Force Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS).
Since founded in 2015, NanoVMs has raised over $2.4 million in funding, which includes $170k from the Department of Energy.

Overview


A new operating system on the horizon

The server operating system has remained the same for 50 years. As we store more of our data online and through servers, we risk our data being compromised by cyber threats.

NanoVMs is developing a new operating system to change the game. The new OS is unikernel based to run Linux apps safer and faster so you don’t have to compromise on security.

The Problem


Server operating systems are out-of-date

Cyber-security is a major concern for companies that rely on servers to store large amounts of data. Servers today can allow multiple users to access data at the same time, creating opportunities for data breaches and targeted cyber attacks. The current server operating systems aren’t designed for these types of attacks. Not only are data breaches costly, they can create distrust and customer loss  for companies.

The Solution


The unikernel, a cloud-based solution

NanoVMs uses unikernels, which are designed to run a single-program as an OS. Unikernels are single process machine images. Unlike the Windows or Linux OS, unikernels prevent multiple programs from running, which in turn prevents attackers from running their own software on your server.

The Market


Delving into the cybersecurity and DevOps market

The key audiences we’re impacting are developers and devops. The DevOps market is expected to be worth $15 billion by 2026, with a compound annual growth rate of 19.1%. This is a significant increase from the DevOps market worth in 2018, which was $3,708.1 million.

Meanwhile, the market for cybersecurity is already an existing $60 billion market. By 2025, the market is projected to grow to nearly $110.99 billion, and then to $182.32 billion by 2030

Our Traction


Patented and with revenue from the US Air Force

We have gained recognition in our 5 target markets: healthcare, finance, energy, telecom and government. Since we founded NanoVMs in 2015, we have raised $2.4 million in funding, which includes  $170k from the Department of Energy. We have also received revenue from the U.S. Air Force, which includes a 5-year Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity Contract for the U.S. Air Force Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS). This multiple-award contract gives NanoVMS a minimum of $1,000 up to a ceiling of $950M over the next 5 years.

Additionally, we have filed 4 patents, and have 2 issued for our technology.  We have run trials with Amgen, a multinational biopharmaceutical company. Recently we launched the new Nanos C2 product with revenue attached.

We have been profiled by Forbes, the Air Force, DOE, TechCrunch and the VMBlog.

What We Do


Creating OS solutions and providing tech support

We are developing a production-ready, unikernel platform. We offer a free, open-source base kernel and orchestration tool for DevOps users. Additionally, we run the Nanos C2 product which is a graphical web application that allows users to control their OS infrastructure as unikernels. We also offer technical support plans for performance engineering and software support including bug fixes, technical advice, and feature development planning. 

The Business Model


Annual and monthly software subscriptions

Our profits come through our SAAS licenses and the Nanos C2 product, as well as our technical support packages. We offer 3 Nanos Support subscription models: business ($600/month), small team ($300/month), and individual developer ($30/month). The Nanos C2 product can be purchased at a monthly rate of $7/user or as an annual package for $67.20/user/year (20% less). Meanwhile, NanoVMs Radar, our unikernel APM is sold single-user for Developer at $9/month or for Small Team at $25/month.

How We Are Different


Unikernels address both containers and Linux security issues

The current market of cybersecurity support is primarily focused on other operating systems rather than Linux. However, our unikernel technology addresses  containers security issues and normal Linux security issues. 

*Comparison data computed based on management’ experience.


The Nanos kernel has only a tenth of 1% of the attack service compared to Linux. We are able to achieve speed and security with less code, libraries, and executables. Not having the concept of users or multiple processes gives us a huge boost in security and performance.

The Vision


The go-to OS for virtualized workloads

Our goal is to revolutionize the server infrastructure environment through our unikernel OS. We anticipate doing this by scaling our team size to thousands of employees and building a strong, core outbound sales team. We are currently growing our team of kernel engineers. In the next few years, we want to be the number one server-side operating system for virtualized workloads including all public cloud data.

OUR LEADERSHIP

New Patent and First Revenue from Australia

18 days ago

New Patent

We received a new patent, 11,061,695 bringing our total issued to three. This is a new one related to an earlier patent and does not include the two others that we've applied for but haven't been issued yet.


First Customer from Australia

We had the first customer from Australia sign up the other day bringing the total number of revenue-producing countries to 6. We probably have a lot more on the free end-user side. One of the reasons why tech companies have enjoyed higher valuations vs companies that have physical products or physical locations is because it is so much easier to sell and distribute throughout the world. So while the USA will be our main bread/butter it is nice to see penetration into other countries.

Futurism, T-Mobile Update and Azure Cosmos Hack of Thousands of Databases

20 days ago

ChaosDB

Wiz reported this week that they found a flaw that in CosmosDB, a hosted service of Microsoft Azure cloud which gave them access to over 2000 customers of Azure's databases which is to put mildly, very very bad.

  https://www.wiz.io/blog/chaosdb-how-we-hacked-thousands-of-azure-customers-databases

While the technical details are scant it appears that it is yet another instance where an Azure service was put into a shared cluster with no hard vm based boundaries as the attacker, once escaping from a Jupyter notebook was immediately able to query into all customer databases. Companies like these hosted services because they are very hands-off, however they come at the price of being locked into a particular vendor and susceptible to events like this.

Unikernels would have helped out tremendously here - not only isolating individual customer workloads but giving the hands-off no-ops approach that these customers desire. We firmly feel that a lot of these hosted services, especially of the "serverless" variety can be entirely replaced with unikernels.


T-Mobile:

For those of you that have been following the latest T-Mobile hack which resulted in a data breach of 50M end-users SSN, drivers licenses and other PII (personally identifiable information) this story is just getting crazier by the day. The hacker who is taking responsibility is an American that lives in Turkey and sued the CIA, the FBI and and other IC agencies last year . The FOIA request is wild with accusations of being an ISIS suspect, directed energy weapons, kidnappings and more. Hollywood has nothing on this.

This is the 5th time T-Mobile has suffered a data breach in the past 3 years. Existing cybersecurity solutions simply are not working at all. A new approach is necessary.

New Debugging Feature for OPS and New Articles

about 1 month ago

More Debugging Tooling


One of the most cited reasons for not using unikernels stems from an article written 5 years ago about debugging them. We've written extensively about this subject and have made quite a lot of tooling for it and even resulted in the NanoVMs Radar service for which we have customers for now.


This past week one of our excellent engineers produced native TFS dump support in OPS which allows one to debug very very easily with and doesn't require a FUSE driver (which we added a while back ago). Considering you can dump images straight from the cloud this makes debugging these so much easier than debugging a Linux instance.

Also, Shaun O’Meara had an article in Techcrunch the other day that makes a strong case for unikernels where he states toward the end:


 "Basically, what I’m advocating here is that orchestrators like Kubernetes should matter less, and Linux should have less impact. Finally, we should proceed as fast as we can toward formalizing the use of things like unikernels."

Docker -> Unikernel Quickly / Easily

2 months ago

One of our users hacked in a very cool feature this week. He made it to where you can take any existing docker container and convert it into a Nanos unikernel very quickly and painlessly. Even if you don't have it, it will go out and download it for you. Docker Hub states they have north of 100,000 existing images so that is a lot of software we can instantly convert, although there is a large portion of it that is filled with malware. In fact according to Aqua Security 50% of new Docker instances are attacked within 56 minutes:


https://venturebeat.com/2021/06/28/aqua-security-50-of-new-docker-instances-attacked-within-56-minutes/


However, when deploying the same software as unikernels many of these attacks immediately become neutralized since unikernels don't have users, don't have shells, remote access and are useless to rogue cryptominers.


In just minutes organizations can convert their existing docker containers to unikernels and get an instant security and performance upgrade:

Serious Google Cloud Attack 100% Mitigated By Nanos Unikernels

3 months ago

There is an un-patched vulnerability on Google Cloud right now. It effectively allows what is called "remote root" - meaning an attacker

has complete and unfettered access to the end machine.


More details here: https://github.com/irsl/gcp-dhcp-takeover-code-exec .


Some people are downplaying it because in most cases it relies on the attacker already having a vm inside the organization's account. The problem with this thinking though is that it completely and conveniently forgets that most software today relies on a very extensive software supply chain pulling in hundreds or thousands of third party dependencies.


Furthermore, most organizations rely on not just a handful of software vendors but many - all that can bring their own software inside of an organization.


Nanos unikernels completely 100% mitigate this attack because we don't have users to begin with. There is no ssh and there is no way to login to them.


In fact both https://nanos.org and https://ops.city are running as Go unikernels on Google Cloud right now and they are 100% protected. No patching necessary.


This is a real-life example of the power of our technology.

Machine Learning and McDonalds

Bank of America and McDonalds:

Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan mentioned this past week that they are now spending over $1Billion a year on cybersecurity.

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/14/bank-of-america-spends-over-1-billion-per-year-on-cybersecurity.html 

That is one company spending over $1 Billion dollars a year on cybersecurity! One company. One Billion Dollars. This really highlights how big of a problem cybersecurity truly is and how current solutions are not working.

Also, last week McDonalds was the latest to get hit: https://www.wsj.com/articles/mcdonalds-hit-by-data-breach-in-south-korea-taiwan-11623412800 .


Machine Learning:

A lot of machine learning software out there such as chat bots such as Rasa https://rasa.com are higher level frameworks that use lower level software such as Tensorflow from Google. This software usually want to make use of newer hardware instructions such as AVX. We just exposed AVX support last week in Nanos allowing us to improve a lot of these machine learning workloads performance.

Intellij Plugin and Security Engineering Investing

3 months ago

Intellij IDEA Plugin

We just released a IntelliJ IDEA plugin. What does that mean? It means developers that use the popular JetBrains suite of IDEs can now easily build, run and deploy Nanos unikernels straight from their IDE. This includes popular editors such as Goland, PhpStorm, PyCharm, and RubyMine. Jet Brains, boasts that they have over 10M developers using their popular IDEs in the world.


Security Engineering

One of our early VC investors, world renowned cybersecurity investor, Ron Gula from Gula Tech Ventures  recently posted this video on why it is necessary to invest in startups working on security engineering versus just general cyber hygiene and software that scans for hacked systems. We are obviously 100% on board with this and exactly why we think unikernels are going to be a huge paradigm change for server side software.

Xen Summit:

  Unikernels might be super technical to understand but they are a very hot topic for leading R&D labs across the world. This shows you how both how technical the topic is but also that there is a massive undercurrent of interest in them.


  This past week at the Xen Summit there were no less than three different talks on the subject of unikernels. Here are the slide decks that were presented:


  Unikraft Weather Report - Felipe Huici, NEC Laboratories Europe GmbH

  Cloning Unikernels on Xen - Costin Lupu, University Politehnica of  Bucharest

  https://static.sched.com/hosted_files/xen2021/75/Cloning-Unikernels-on-Xen.pdf


  RunX: Deploy RTOSes and unikernels as Containers at the Edge - Stefano   Stabellini & Bruce Ashfield, Xilinx

O Canada and 66% Reduction in Deploy Time to AWS

4 months ago

66% Reduction Deploy Time to AWS:

We've had support for AWS for a long time now but the deploy times could take a few minutes and so we used to tell people to use Google Cloud instead if that bothered them. Google is where we host both of our open source projects https://ops.city and https://nanos.org .


Not any more. A new PR landed that results in up to a 66% reduction for deploys to AWS. You can now push your unikernel workloads to AWS in tens of seconds. 


That's a completely brand new machine image - no containers, no linux - just your app - running faster and safer as a nano vm.


Canada:

Since we create open source software we have a large user base that is spread throughout the world and they serve as the frontline of market awareness and adoption. So, it's always exciting when one of those previously free users converts into a customer - this time from Canada. There's currently 195 countries in the world - gotta collect them all!

New Terraform Provider and Running in Production Podcast

5 months ago

Terraform:

We now have an official terraform provider that allows end users to seamlessly integrate their unikernel workloads into existing terraform workflows. This is pretty exciting since one of the challenges we routinely find is that companies typically already have existing infrastructure practices in place they don't wish to change. Having this provider allows them to continue using terraform and other Hashicorp software yet start integrating unikernels easily.


Running in Production Podcast:

If you're technical you might enjoy listening to this podcast, Running in Production, where Nick Janetakis interviews Ian Eyberg (CEO of NanoVMs) that came out this week:

Patent News, New Fuse Driver and Japan!

5 months ago

Patent:

One of our issued patents had a "continuance" on it meaning even after it was issued we can continue to improve it (yes we have some smart attorneys). Happy to announce that more of our claims were accepted making it much stronger.


Fuse Driver:

One of our really talented engineers introduced a FUSE driver recently which makes debugging, integration, and deploying so much easier. It's a really awesome feature since unikernels don't have a shell or interactive method of working with a system by design and this has been quite a contentious point for some time. This allows the end-user to mount the end filesystem and use ordinary unix tooling on it even while live. It is quite the game-changer.


Japan:

Since our open source is free and found on github we have lot of free users throughout the world many of which we have no clue who they are or where they are from. This is fairly normal in the open source world that we operate in. Japan now joins countries like India and Norway that we have revenue from.

New Customers and New Oracle Cloud Support

5 months ago

Since launching the campaign we've had new customers sign up for Nanos C2 and existing customers onboard to NanoVMs Radar which is our new APM solution focused on unikernels and was launched right before this campaign.

The latest release of our open source unikernel orchestrator, OPS now has full VirtualBox support and can now deploy to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
