The diverse cloud native ecosystem continues to produce innovative solutions to complex problems thanks to meaningful investment from organizations across the world 

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe Virtual – May 5, 2021 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, today announced the addition of 27 new members and end user supporters to continue driving innovation and diffusion of cloud native technology across the globe.

COVID-19 has reshaped the world into a vastly more digital place and cloud native technology has been a critical component to this transformation, becoming present in services across almost every aspect of our lives. As the ecosystem comes together for our virtual European event, CNCF celebrates significant growth in the last year with a 50% growth in contributors, reaching over 123,000, and a 118% increase in the number of CNCF hosted projects, which is now at 96. 

“We continue to be humbled by the number of diverse organizations driving innovation through cloud native technology impacting human beings worldwide,” said Priyanka Sharma, general manager of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “What has become very clear over the last year is that the economy is significantly benefitting from open source and that we are better when we work together across organizational, geographic, and demographic boundaries. In that same spirit, today we welcome 27 new members from around the world. We look forward to collaborating with them on solutions to the complex challenges faced by humanity today.”

These new members will also join CNCF at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events, including this week’s KubeCon + CloudNativeCom EU – Virtual from May 4 – 7, 2021, and KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA in Los Angeles from October 12 – 15, 2020.
