Today the software stack inside cloud instances closely follows the traditional pattern, the pattern optimised for a completely different settings. The emerging OS-less software technologies promise to radically simplify the software inside virtual servers. Erlang on Xen is one of such technologies. It is a highly-compatible reimplementation of the Erlang VM that run directly on Xen. The super-elastic services based on Erlang on Xen adhere to 7 'commandments': 1) Do not assume the presence of OS underneath; 2) Software must be oblivious to boundaries of physical nodes 3) All services share the same auto-scalable infrastructure 4) Run computations near the data they process 5) Child nodes get configuration from the parent only 6) Avoid “administration” at all costs 7) SMP is abomination of cloud computing.
