At KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA – Virtual, CNCF passes the 600 current member mark, driving significant diversity in the ecosystem

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA Virtual – November 18, 2020 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, today announced that 46 new members and end user supporters have joined the Foundation to further driving cloud native technology innovation.

In the final quarter of 2020, an increasingly diverse set of members joined CNCF. This continued member growth and industry diversity is phenomenal and underscores the continued excitement around cloud native technologies as we gather for CNCF’s second virtual KubeCon + CloudNativeCon conference. With 13 graduated projects and 21 in incubation, CNCF’s community continues to grow at an outstanding pace. 

“Our resilience comes from our far reaching, diverse community as we face new technological and social challenges in our world today,” said Priyanka Sharma, general manager of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “CNCF has a incredibly unique community not only from our varied demographics, but also our geographic reach, and the end users we serve – who in turn touch hundreds of millions of consumers with their products and services. We continue to be humbled by the immense interest from new organizations and welcome them with open arms as we further drive innovation across industries.”  

These new members will also join CNCF for the upcoming KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events, including KubeCon + CloudNativeCom NA – Virtual from November 17-20, 2020, and KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU – Virtual from May 4-7, 2021.
