"The wide availability of cloud computing offers an un-precedented opportunity to rethink how we construct applications," opens the paper Turning Down the LAMP: Software Specialisation for the Cloud (PDF) - an "unashamedly academic" exploration of building custom kernals for the cloud. The papers authors - Anil Madhavapeddy, Richard Mortier, Ripduman Sohan, Thomas Gazagnaire, Steven Hand, Tim Deegan, Derek McAuley and Jon Crowcroft - built a prototype called Mirage to test their ideas. Essentially, Mirage is an extended version of Objective Caml running as a guest operating system in Xen. The authors claim this implementation exhibits "signi?cant performance speedups for I/O and memory handling versus the same code running under Linux/Xen."
