Without getting a quote increase limit by default you are limited to 20 t2.nano instances on AWS. This is insane if you want a full on unikernel environment and take advantage of their small size.
Both AWS and Google Cloud have minimum 1Gb volume sizes. This is a huge problem especially for compiled language unikernels as everytime you hit the deploy button you have to push a 1Gb image back up the pipe. It doesn't matter if you are using sparse files. DeferPanic has *no* volume limits and makes it trivial to attach/de-tach volumes on the fly that enable unikernel workflows such as the volume deploy flow for interpreted languages and the volume CFM flow.
Paying by the hour is something that is simply un-acceptable in the unikernel world - not when you might want to have truly elastic services. Since running a hypervisor on top of a hypervisor isn't a great option you have to resort to spinning up extra instances which is costly - even a t2.nano costs ~ $5/month per host. Now multiply that by the number of instances you are spinning up/down and you have a real problem on your hands.
