CNCF exists to help nurture and launch technologies that make life better and Prometheus does just that.

We also take it upon ourselves to educate the world on the power of cloud native and open source.

So, we are especially thrilled with the just released documentary, “Inside Prometheus: An Open Source System That Changed Technology,” from Speakeasy Productions.

The film gives viewers an inside look at the journey from creation to mass adoption of one of the fastest-growing open source frameworks in the world. Prometheus is the invisible force that vastly improves the tech industry’s ability to monitor applications that power everything from e-commerce sites to databases.

Prometheus was the second project to join the CNCF, after Kubernetes, and shaped everything around modern monitoring and observability. With this film, everyone can enjoy the inspiring story of how developers tackled the daunting task of creating new open source systems and succeeded. 

It is stories like these that help inspire our community to strive for new heights and to continue to innovate to the benefit of companies, organizations, and societies.

The film debuted at the PrometheusDay North America event co-located with KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2022 in Detroit, Michigan.

It was made possible by technology providers and community leaders at CNCF, Chronosphere, Google, and Red Hat.

Enjoy the film!
