Foundation reaches membership milestone, 10x growth in less than three years, from industry’s biggest cross-collaboration gathering around open source technologies

VANCOUVER, Canada – August 29, 2018 – Open Source Summit North America – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that 38 new members have joined the Foundation – growing from 28 members at the Foundation’s launch in 2015 to 284 today.

According to the findings of CNCF’s brand new survey of nearly 2,500 developer or IT-related roles, the use of Foundation projects – including Envoy, Prometheus, containerd, and CoreDNS – is up over 200 percent on average in the last 6 months. This substantial growth in adoption is, in part, due to the advantages of having a neutral home for collaboration around cloud native projects. By joining CNCF, these new members are taking an active role in supporting the ecosystem’s growth and evolution.

“As the use and adoption of open source software continue to grow, it’s paramount that both individual and enterprise users contribute back to cloud native projects in order for the community to drive sustainable and agile innovation forward,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “CNCF is thrilled to welcome these 38 new members and we look forward to bringing the entire community together later this year at our remaining KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events.”

The Foundation will host the inaugural KubeCon + CloudNativeCon China, from November 13-15 in Shanghai, and its annual North American KubeCon + CloudNativeCon event, from December 10-13 in Seattle – furthering the education and adoption of cloud native computing across the globe.

About Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Cloud native computing uses an open source software stack to deploy applications as microservices, packaging each part into its own container, and dynamically orchestrating those containers to optimize resource utilization. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) hosts critical components of cloud native software stacks, including Kubernetes and Prometheus. CNCF serves as the neutral home for collaboration and brings together the industry’s top developers, end users and vendors – including the world’s largest public cloud and enterprise software companies as well as dozens of innovative startups. CNCF is part of The Linux Foundation, a nonprofit organization. For more information about CNCF, please visit
