As the support landscape for FluxCD evolves and expands, new companies and end users step up to ensure long-term project sustainability

PARIS, France – KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe – March 19, 2024 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, today shared that Graduated project FluxCD is receiving significant support from new dedicated companies committed to the ongoing maintenance and development of Flux GitOps tools and providing continuous delivery for applications and platforms. With additional support from CNCF, the project has now successfully transitioned to a stronger and broader community.

Companies affirming their support for Flux among their offerings include Aenix, Aviator, Microsoft Azure, ControlPlane, Edgecell, Fairwinds, Giant Swarm, Gimlet, GitLab, Nearform, Opsmx, Opsworks, OSO, Teracloud, and TNG. Additional long-time Flux adopters who have added themselves to the public list recently include Cisco and German retailer Tchibo alongside new use cases from organizations such as the Sylva project.  

GitLab announced its continued support for Flux and working with partners in a recent blog post. In early 2023, GitLab integrated Flux with its agent for Kubernetes offering as the recommended GitOps solution. 

FluxCD was developed at Weaveworks which announced that it would cease commercial operations at the start of February. CNCF has worked with many FluxCD stakeholders so that end users and former customers can access long term sustainable development and support. 

“I am glad to see the continued support across the open source cloud native community for Flux as well as Weaveworks ensuring projects remain available throughout the community. In the immediate future, CNCF is planning to fund mentorships and security work. We encourage other organizations to get involved as there’s never a bad time to contribute to an open source project you depend on. Also, this is a great example of the strength and resilience of our community and we look forward to Flux’s continued evolution and growth,” said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO, CNCF.

FluxCD ecosystem projects are expanding and enabling more open source capabilities and pathways for contributors to enter the space. With Weaveworks support, key projects have now migrated into the wider community such as the Flux-IaC tools that enable GitOps for infrastructure as code tools working alongside Kubernetes.

CNCF is supporting a special Birds of a Feather session at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe in Paris on Wednesday 20 March at 11:00 CET. This will be an opportunity for FluxCD ecosystem users and maintainers to get together with all parties interested in supporting the project. Ecosystem projects will be presented and an overall plan shared for everyone to get involved in the future of the technology. 

As a Graduated project within CNCF, Flux reached General Availability in July 2023 and completed its second security audit with the CNCF last November with no CVEs. 

Supporting Quotes:

“After I announced the closure of Weave, I was overwhelmed by the offers of support from across the industry. People love FluxCD and the wonderful people and tools around it. Several vendors offered jobs, and end users asked what they could do to help,” said Alexis Richardson, CEO, Weaveworks. “Very quickly it became obvious that we could enable genuinely positive change. This was a terrific opportunity to help users and shift to a community model emphasizing equity, accessibility, and sustainability. That would be not only for core Flux but also for the projects that extend it; and where many more people could participate.  That is our goal now.”

“All the Flux maintainers want to see the project flourish, and we are grateful to CNCF for their help and guidance. We invite the community to help us shape the future of Flux. We have in place an RFC process for new features and enhancements proposals, and we are keen to work with the community on RFCs and drive the project forward in a sustainable manner. We want to enable community members to take full ownership of Flux features and share the responsibility of feature stability and longer-term maintenance.  In this special situation we are also available at Kubecon to meet everyone and welcome your questions, help and input. We are looking forward to meeting you in person and discussing the future of Flux.”  – Stefan Prodan, Flux core maintainer, ControlPlane

“We are really happy to observe new big tech shops bringing their support to Flux. It should give everyone the confidence to keep committing and investing. The level of quality and security, and the modularity of Flux have been prime reasons for our decision to use it two years ago to automate the deployment and lifecycle management of network functions. Our Linux Foundation Sylva-based cloud native infrastructure relies on the strength and resilience of the Flux community. Flux’s technology and community make it the GitOps framework in our Telco networks.” – Philippe Ensarguet, VP Software Engineering, Orange

“Flux is the engine that powers several GitOps experiences on Azure as well as in our customer’s environments. We will continue to invest in Flux through upstream contributions for the long-term health and support of the project, and downstream partnerships to help customers.” – Lachie Evenson, Principal PDM Manager, Cloud Native Ecosystem, Microsoft 

“ControlPlane is excited to welcome core maintainers Stefan Prodan and Soule Ba as new employees, to continue their contributions to the Flux open-source project, a cornerstone of our offerings. We are delighted to continue supporting the Flux project for all users, and to provide organizations access to a hardened, FIPS-compliant, enterprise-grade distribution of Flux, complete with 24/7 support for critical systems.” — Andrew Martin, CEO, ControlPlane

“FluxCD has become an integral part of the developer ecosystem. Aviator is a developer productivity platform co-founded by ex-Googlers. We are thrilled to endorse the FluxCD project and offer comprehensive enterprise support and consulting services.” — Ankit Jain, CEO Aviator

“OpsMx is committed to providing best-in-class support for all Flux users. By providing an enterprise-grade distribution of Flux, alongside our existing CD distributions, we intend to give enterprise customers a choice of CD Platforms – a key goal of “Open CD” Architecture. OpsMx AI-driven Security and Intelligence Modules will  be supported for all Flux users.” — Gopal Dommety, CEO, OpsMx 

“Flux has had a major impact on the Kubernetes ecosystem, and brought GitOps into mainstream usage. Building on our work with Kubernetes in CNCF, Fairwinds will support the Flux community.  This includes the project ecosystem plus any former Weaveworks customers and partners, where we can provide both value add and continuity.” – Bill Ledingham, CEO, Fairwinds

“OpsWorks Group and all our companies, OpsWorks Co., UppLabs, and RhodeCode, are proud to join the Flux community. We’re long time users of the technology, and here to support customers and the community process, develop new features, polish existing ones, and strengthen the infrastructure. It’s an honor for us to be a part of this journey, and we’re committed to making a difference.” – Artem Dolobanko, CEO, OpsWorks Group

“We at Teracloud are thrilled to join the community and support the FluxCD project as a user and as a future contributor. This marks a significant milestone in our journey with open-source technology and underscores our commitment to contributing to innovative solutions in the cloud-native ecosystem. As we integrate FluxCD into our internal projects, we look forward to collaborating with the community and driving the project forward with our contributions.” — Vadim Ilves, Chief R&D Officer, Teracloud

“Ænix utilizes FluxCD as a key component in our cloud platform, Cozystack. As staunch advocates for this technology, we believe FluxCD represents the new industry standard for platform engineering.

“Flux is the backbone of platform efforts industry wide, so as it is the backbone of our product, Gimlet. When we learned about the difficulties in the ecosystem it was without question that we pitch in. We fast tracked the development of our general purpose Flux GUI: Capacitor and launched it late February. In the meantime it was great to see the continued support for Flux from end users and vendors alike.” — Laszlo Fogas, Founder,

“Giant Swarm chose Flux as the core of our GitOps experience for all our enterprise customers as we believe that it’s the most cloud native GitOps approach in the market. We will continue providing support for Flux among our customers and are happy to contribute upstream based on our end user community’s production usage of the project.” — Puja Abbassi, VP Product. Giant Swarm
