Today we are excited to share the etcd Project Journey Report! CNCF Project Journey Reports look at our graduated projects and assess the community’s impact on project growth since joining.

etcd is a key-value store for distributed systems that provides a way for applications of any complexity — from a simple web app to Kubernetes — to store and access critical data. etcd joined CNCF in 2018 and remained in incubation for two years before graduating last November. 

Born at CoreOS — now part of Red Hat — etcd offers consistency guarantees. It can tolerate machine failures even in the leader node and watch specific keys or directories for changes and react, enabling applications to reconfigure themselves accordingly. It is the primary data store for Kubernetes. 

Some of the highlights of the report include:

Etcd has reached some impressive growth milestones since joining the community, and we can’t wait to see what the project continues to accomplish! Have a look at the full etcd Project Journey Report to learn more about these accomplishments in more detail.
