Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces DiDi as Winner of Top End User Award

By June 24, 2019 Announcement

Leading transportation platform recognized for its contributions to open source big data and artificial intelligence technologies

SHANGHAI, CHINA – June 24, 2019 KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit China – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that DiDi, the world’s leading multi-modal transportation platform, has won the CNCF End User Award in recognition of its contributions to the cloud native ecosystem.

DiDi, or Didi Chuxing, offers a multimodal mobility service platform including taxi-hailing, ride-sharing and bike-sharing, delivering over 10 billion trips per year across Asia, Latin America and Australia. Operating at such a large scale, DiDi was unable to find a proprietary platform to fit its needs, and embraced open source technologies to build a custom architecture. The company actively uses, and contributes back to, open source big-data applications like Apache Spark, Presto, Hive, Flink, and Druid for general analytics and queries.

“It’s so important that organizations like DiDi, which process massive amounts of data at scale, contribute knowledge and technology back to the community,” said Cheryl Hung, Director of Ecosystem at Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “It’s an honor to present this award to DiDi, who is not only an active member of the CNCF End User Community, but serves as a great example of how organizations can play a big role in advancing cloud native and open source technologies.”

DiDi has open sourced several of its own projects, including VirtualAPK, a powerful and lightweight plugin framework for Android, cube-ui, a mobile ui lib implement by Vue, DoraemonKit and chameleon.   

DiDi has also created initiatives to encourage collaboration around smart transportation systems. These include GAIA, which brings together universities and research institutes by providing the academic community with real application scenarios, anonymized data and computing resources, and the Qunyan Initiative, a smart mobility platform through which it exports its artificial intelligence capabilities to transportation authorities and research institutes. DiDi’s research network consists of the DiDi Research Institute, DiDi Labs and AI Labs, and focuses on advancing smart transportation and artificial intelligence technologies.

“In building our resource scheduling platform we quickly realized the benefits that open source container technologies provide, and how critical it is to have a home for them that ensures the community is also contributing back and actively improving them,” said Zhang Wensong, SVP and head of the Cloud Platform Business Group at DiDi. “It is such an honor to have our work in the open source and cloud native communities recognized by CNCF.”

DiDi is one of more than 88 organizations in the CNCF End User Community, which meets regularly to share adoption best practices and feedback on project roadmaps and future projects for CNCF technical leaders to consider.

云原生计算基金会宣布滴滴荣获最终用户最高奖项

领先的交通出行平台因其在开源大数据和人工智能技术方面做出的突出贡献而得到广泛认可

中国上海 – 2019 年 6 月 24 日 中国 KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + 开源峰会 – 维护并集成 Kubernetes® 和 Prometheus™ 等开源技术的云原生计算基金会® (CNCF®) 今日宣布,全球领先的多模式交通出行平台滴滴荣获 CNCF 最终用户大奖,此次评奖旨在表彰其在云原生生态系统方面做出的突出贡献。

滴滴或滴滴出行提供多模式移动出行服务平台,包括打车、拼车及共享单车,每年在亚洲、拉丁美洲和澳大利亚提供超过 100 亿次出行服务。由于运营规模过于庞大,滴滴无法找到满足其需求的专有平台,因此采用开源技术来构建定制架构。该公司积极使用开源大数据应用(例如 Apache Spark、Presto、Hive、Flink 和 Druid)进行一般分析和查询,并为这些应用的发展贡献力量。

云原生计算基金会生态系统总监 Cheryl Hung 表示:“重要的是,滴滴等大规模处理海量数据的组织将其掌握的知识和技术回馈到社区中。很荣幸将此奖项颁发给滴滴,该企业不仅是 CNCF 最终用户社区的积极成员,而且是组织在推进云原生和开源技术方面发挥重要作用的典范。”

滴滴已经开放了其几个自有项目的源代码,包括 VirtualAPK(一个功能强大的轻型 Android 插件框架)、cube-ui(由 Vue 支持的移动 ui lib 工具)、DoraemonKitchameleon。   

此外,滴滴还制定了一系列计划,鼓励围绕智能交通出行系统展开协作。其中包括 GAIA(盖亚)和 Qunyan 计划,前者汇聚了各大高校和研究机构,旨在为学术界提供真实的应用场景、匿名数据和计算资源,后者是一个智能移动出行平台,能够为交通运输部门和研究机构提供人工智能功能。滴滴研究网络包括滴滴研究所、滴滴实验室和人工智能实验室,致力于推进智能交通出行和人工智能技术的发展。

滴滴云平台事业部高级副总裁兼负责人章文嵩表示:“在构建我们的资源调度平台时,我们很快认识到开源容器技术带来的优势,并意识到有必要搭建一个技术平台,以确保社区快速获得回馈并积极改进这些技术。我们为开源和云原生社区方面的工作能够得到 CNCF 的认可倍感荣幸。”

作为 CNCF 最终用户社区中超过 88 个组织之一,滴滴定期召开会议,分享最佳实践,并提供项目路线图和未来项目反馈供 CNCF 技术领导者参考。
