CNCF to Host OpenMetrics in the Sandbox

By | Blog

Today, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) accepted OpenMetrics, an open source specification for metrics exposition, into the CNCF Sandbox, a home for early stage and evolving cloud native projects.

OpenMetrics brings together the maturity and adoption of Prometheus, Google’s background in working with stats at extreme scale, along with the experience and needs of a variety of projects, vendors, and end-users – aiming to move away from the hierarchical way of monitoring to enable users to transmit metrics at scale.

The open source initiative, focused on creating a neutral metrics exposition format, provides a sound data model for current and future needs of users, and embeds this into a standard that is an evolution of the widely-adopted Prometheus exposition format. While there are numerous monitoring solutions available today, many do not focus on metrics and are based on old technologies with proprietary, hard-to-implement and hierarchical data models.

“The key benefit of OpenMetrics is that it opens up the de facto model for cloud native metric monitoring to numerous industry leading implementations and new adopters. Prometheus has changed the way the world does monitoring and OpenMetrics aims to take this organically grown ecosystem and transform it into a basis for a deliberate, industry-wide consensus, thus bridging the gap to other monitoring solutions like InfluxData, Sysdig, Weave Cortex, and OpenCensus. It goes without saying that Prometheus will be at the forefront of implementing OpenMetrics in its server and all client libraries,” said Richard Hartmann, technical architect at SpaceNet, Prometheus team member, and founder of OpenMetrics. “CNCF has been instrumental in bringing together cloud native communities. We look forward to working with this community to further cloud native monitoring and continue building our community of users and upstream contributors.”

OpenMetrics contributors include AppOptics, Cortex, Datadog, Google, InfluxData, OpenCensus, Prometheus, Sysdig and Uber, among others.

“Metrics, when combined with traces and logging, are key to measuring the success of any technology initiative. By offering support for open standards such as OpenMetrics, we’ve enabled our customers to quickly gain visibility into the growing ecosystem technologies that are key to their cloud native transitions,” said Ilan Rabinovitch, VP of Product & Community at Datadog. “We look forward to our continued collaboration with the CNCF and observability community on developing standards and best practices for monitoring in cloud native architectures.”

“Google has a history of innovation in the metric monitoring space, from its early success with Borgmon, which has been continued in Monarch and Stackdriver. OpenMetrics embodies our understanding of what users need for simple, reliable and scalable monitoring, and shows our commitment to offering standards-based solutions. In addition to our contributions to the spec, we’ll be enabling OpenMetrics support in OpenCensus” said Sumeer Bhola, Lead Engineer on Monarch and Stackdriver at Google.

“At InfluxData, we’re very excited about the work to create a standard metrics format. Even though metrics is a subset of our larger focus on time series data, we see real value in creating a standard that can work across vendors and open source projects,” said Paul Dix, founder and CTO of InfluxData. “We’re excited to collaborate with members from Prometheus, OpenCensus and others to push the OpenMetrics standard forward. It will be a first class citizen in the InfluxData set of open source tools, including InfluxDB, our open source time series database and Telegraf, our open source data collector.”

OpenMetrics is a huge improvement over the current mixed bag of formats out there today, and will make systems more interoperable with each other. Uber has a lot of complexity with the challenge of ingesting all of the metrics different applications and services expose due to this problem. Complex software and data centers will become a little easier to observe, monitor and run with this standard, which makes tools work together more easily, and small to medium organizations will need to invest less time for first class monitoring,” said Rob Skillington, lead of metrics and systems monitoring at Uber. “We are excited to be a part of OpenMetrics and will natively support the standard in our open source distributed time series database M3DB, which we use to store petabytes of metrics with, alongside supporting long-term storage of metrics for Prometheus.”

TOC sponsors of the project include Alexis Richardson and Bryan Cantrill.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces Prometheus Graduation

By | Announcement

Widely-adopted open source monitoring and alerting tool used by cloud native leaders like DigitalOcean, Red Hat, SUSE, and Weaveworks

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., August 9, 2018 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced from PromCon – the annual Prometheus conference dedicated to the monitoring system – that Prometheus is its second project to graduate, following Kubernetes. To move from the maturity level of incubation to graduation, projects must demonstrate thriving adoption, a documented, structured governance process, and a strong commitment to community sustainability and inclusivity.

“Since its inception in 2012, Prometheus has become one of the top open source monitoring tools of choice for enterprises building modern cloud native applications,” said Chris Aniszczyk, COO of the CNCF. “Since being accepted as the second project in CNCF, Prometheus has cultivated an active developer and user community,giving the TOC full confidence to graduate the project. As a testament to its maturity, we’re thrilled to see the Prometheus community spin out OpenMetrics, which takes the Prometheus exposition format and works to evolve it as a de facto industry specification.”

Prometheus was first created at SoundCloud in 2012, and was contributed to CNCF in May 2016. The project has had 30 official releases – both major and minor – since entering CNCF’s incubation level.

“As a big supporter, originator and end user of the project, SoundCloud would like to congratulate the Prometheus team on the project’s graduation into a CNCF official project,” said Jake Maizel, VP of Infrastructure and Core Engineering at SoundCloud. “Prometheus has helped improve the monitoring and alerting practices of many companies and it’s great to see the project evolve further with this official graduation. Congratulations to all involved!”

Prometheus now has nearly 20 active maintainers, more than 1,000 contributors and more than 13,000 commits from its growing user base, which includes ShuttleCloud, Datawire, DigitalOcean, Weaveworks, ShowMax, iAdvize and Uber, among others. Prometheus also integrates with CNCF’s first-hosted project, Kubernetes, to support service discovery and monitoring of dynamically scheduled services.

“Since becoming part of CNCF, Prometheus has become an essential piece in modern infrastructure stacks and helped shape the way organizations monitor critical applications,” said Julius Volz, Co-founder of the Prometheus project. “We are incredibly proud to have Prometheus graduate, and we look forward to working with CNCF to sustain and grow our community.”

For more Prometheus milestones and its tenure at CNCF, read this blog.

“Prometheus is an open source project with interest and use in the cloud native industry and Kubernetes ecosystem, which is why we are and have been involved in upstream development efforts, such as with the open source Prometheus Operator,” said Rob Szumski, principal product manager for OpenShift, Red Hat. “Our customers often expect rigorous qualification of the features available from projects like Prometheus and as such, we are working across our teams to help provide this quality to our customers in our offerings.”

“As a provider of open source solutions to enterprise customers, SUSE uses Prometheus to deliver advanced monitoring capabilities in a variety of offerings,” said Thomas Di Giacomo, SUSE CTO. “It’s a great complement to Cloud Native Computing Foundation projects like Kubernetes and to other distributed systems. Today’s graduation is a well-deserved recognition of the technology, its community maturity, and the value Prometheus brings to a wide range of use cases.”

To officially graduate from incubating status, the project also adopted the CNCF Code of Conduct, executed an independent security audit and defined its own governance structure to grow the community. Additionally, Prometheus also had to earn (and maintain) a Core Infrastructure Initiative Best Practices Badge. Completed on June 23, 2017, the CII badge shows an ongoing commitment to code quality and security best practices.

 Prometheus Background

The systems and service monitoring framework collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals, evaluates rule expressions, displays the results, and can trigger alerts if some condition is observed to be true. All components are available under the Apache 2 License, and are overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project.

CNCF to Host Helm

By | Blog

Today, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) voted to accept Helm as an incubation-level hosted project.

No longer a sub-project under Kubernetes, Helm is a package manager that provides an easy way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes. Helm removes complexity from configuration and deployment, and enables greater developer productivity.

“Helm addresses a common user need of deploying applications to Kubernetes by making their configurations reusable,” said Brian Grant, TOC representative and project sponsor, Principal Engineer at Google, and Kubernetes SIG Architecture co-chair and Steering Committee member. “Both the Helm and Kubernetes projects have grown substantially. As Kubernetes shifts its focus to its own core in order to better manage this growth, CNCF is a great home for Helm to continue making it easier for developers and operators to streamline Kubernetes deployments.”

According to a recent Kubernetes Application Survey, 64 percent of the application developers, application operators, and ecosystem tool developers who answered the survey reported using Helm to manage apps on Kubernetes.

“As Kubernetes focuses more on stability, CNCF gives Helm a new home to ensure the community’s needs will be met,” said Chris Aniszczyk, COO of Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “Helm has scaled their community with hundreds of contributors to its core and community charts, and we look forward to growing their community even further.”

The project was started by Deis (now part of Microsoft) in 2015 and later evolved into Kubernetes Helm, the merged result of Helm Classic and the Kubernetes Deployment Manager (built by Google). The project has more than 300 contributors, and more than 800 contributors to the community charts, a successful conference based solely on Helm, and a unique culture in comparison to core Kubernetes.

“In building Helm, we set out to build a tool to serve as an onramp to Kubernetes – one that seasoned developers would not only use, but also contribute back to,” said Matt Butcher, co-creator of Helm and Principal Engineer at Microsoft. “By joining CNCF, we’ll benefit from the input and participation of the community and, conversely, Kubernetes will benefit when a community of developers provides a vast repository of ready-made charts for running workloads on Kubernetes.”

Conceptually, Helm is similar to OS-level package managers like Apt, Yum, and Homebrew in that it handles putting things in the right place for the running application bringing all of the advantages of an OS package manager to a Kubernetes container platform. Helm’s packaging format, called charts, is a collection of files that describe a related set of Kubernetes resources. Charts are created as files laid out in a particular directory tree, which can then be packaged into versioned archives to be deployed.

Main Features:

  • Find and use popular software packaged as Kubernetes charts
  • Share applications as Kubernetes charts
  • Create reproducible builds of your Kubernetes applications
  • Intelligently manage Kubernetes manifest files
  • Manage releases of Helm packages

Notable Milestones:

  • 330 contributors
  • 5,531 GitHub stars
  • 51 releases
  • 4,186 commits
  • 1,935 forks

As a CNCF hosted project – alongside Incubated technologies like Prometheus, OpenTracing, Fluentd, Linkerd, gRPC, CoreDNS, containerd, rkt, CNI, Envoy, Jaeger, Notary, TUF, Vitess, and NATS – Helm is part of a neutral foundation aligned with its technical interests, as well as the larger Linux Foundation, which provide the project with governance, marketing support and community outreach.

Every CNCF project has an associated maturity level: sandbox, incubating, or graduated project. For more information on what qualifies a technology for each level, please visit https://www.cncf.io/projects/graduation-criteria/.

For more on Helm, please visit https://helm.sh/, and read more from co-creator Matt Butcher on the Deis Blog. You can also watch this session from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Austin on building Helm charts, and read this blog post to see how Helm can be used with other projects.

CNCF To Host CloudEvents in the Sandbox

By | Blog

Today, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) accepted the open source specification CloudEvents into the CNCF Sandbox, a home for early stage and evolving cloud native projects.

CloudEvents, an industry initiative that members of the CNCF Serverless Working Group contribute to, provides a consistent set of metadata to make events easier to work with for publishers, middleware, subscribers, and applications. Its focus on the task of extracting the common metadata about an event allows for infrastructure to process events without the need to know or understand the remaining event data.

Companies contributing to CloudEvents include Alibaba, Google, Huawei, IBM, Iguazio, Microsoft, Oracle, Red Hat, SAP, VMware, and more. Microsoft recently announced support for CloudEvents natively for all events in Azure, via Azure Event Grid, following the release of version 0.1.

“Becoming a Sandbox project within the CNCF is a critical next step for CloudEvents. Recognition by the CNCF’s Technical Oversight Committee aligns with the market’s desire for interoperable and portable solutions,” said Doug Davis, Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM and CloudEvents co-chair. “Additionally, by formalizing our relationship with the CNCF, we hope to expand the list of potential reviewers and consumers of the specification as we strive for broad adoption.”

“The CNCF has a remarkable ability to bring people and organizations together.  It is the natural fit for a specification that may drive the future of integrations,” said Austen Collins, CEO of Serverless Inc. “Together, we will accelerate the development of CloudEvents and help modern businesses reduce lock-in, maximize agility and pursue innovation.”

TOC sponsors of the project include Ken Owens and Brian Grant.

CNCF To Host Telepresence in the Sandbox

By | Blog

Today, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) announced acceptance of Telepresence into the CNCF Sandbox, a home for early stage and evolving cloud native projects.

Telepresence is an open source tool licensed under the Apache 2.0 License that lets developers run a single service locally, while connecting that service to a remote Kubernetes cluster. Teams working on multi-service applications are able to substitute a two-way network proxy for any normal pod running in the cluster, enabling quick local development for Kubernetes microservices.

“Organizations adopting Kubernetes are finding that optimizing their development workflow is crucial for maximizing agility and speed. Telepresence is a key component of adopting a cloud native development workflow,” said Richard Li, CEO of Datawire, a venture-backed company that serves as Telepresence‘s primary maintainer. “We’re thrilled to have the project join CNCF and bring a focus to developers building cloud native applications.”

Telepresence users include Bitnami, Namely, Sight Machine, Verloop, Coder Society, and various non-public enterprise users.

TOC sponsors of the project include Alexis Richardson and Camille Fournier.

Squarespace Makes Building Websites Easy with Kubernetes and Cloud Native on the Backend

By | Blog

Since it was started in a dorm room in 2003, Squarespace has made it simple for millions of people to create their own websites. Behind the scenes, though, the company’s monolithic Java application was making things complicated for its own developers to keep improving the platform.

Read this case study to learn about the company’s transition to Kubernetes in order to keep up with the demand for new features. After a couple months of configuring and testing, they had a stable Kubernetes cluster for their internal use and began rolling out Kubernetes for production. They also added Prometheus, fluentd and Zipkin to their cloud native stack.

According to Kevin Lynch, Staff Engineer on the Site Reliability team at Squarespace, “once you prove that Kubernetes solves one problem, everyone immediately starts solving other problems without you even having to evangelize it.”

Going forward, all new services at Squarespace are going into Kubernetes and the end goal is for the company to convert services and applications they can. To learn more about how organizations are transforming their performance with cloud native technologies, watch keynotes and sessions from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU, which was recently held May 2-4, 2018 in Copenhagen.
