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.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces Bloomberg as Winner of Top End User Award

By | Announcement

Financial Software Leader Recognized for Contributions to the Cloud Native Ecosystem  

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – May 2, 2018 – KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that Bloomberg, the global finance, media and tech company, has won the CNCF End User Award, chosen by its peers in recognition of major contributions to the cloud native ecosystem.

The global business and financial information leader heavily leverages open source to deliver real-time data, news and analytics to hundreds of thousands of decision makers across business, finance, government, policy and philanthropy. In addition to being a user of open source, Bloomberg contributed the Prometheus Influxstatsd backend, which delivers Prometheus metrics to the company’s internal telemetry systems and enables other users to ship their metrics to their own Statsd ingestion tools. In addition, Bloomberg built its own tool for testing Kubernetes clusters called PowerfulSeal, and released it as open source on GitHub.

“At Bloomberg, we’ve made a significant push to adopt cloud native standards across our  operations, and integrate cloud native tooling at both the application and infrastructure levels,” said Andrey Rybka, head of the compute architecture team in Bloomberg’s Office of the CTO. “As our teams ramp up our Kubernetes-as-a-Service initiative to provide a unified method for provisioning Kubernetes infrastructure, it’s an honor to be recognized by our peers with this award.”

Bloomberg engineers are active Kubernetes core contributors, frequently committing new functionality and fixes upstream. For example, the company developed functionality for creating a Job from a CronJob; helped patch/test RBAC; and advanced community tools like kubeadm, kube-ops-view, KUBO and spark-on-k8s (a native Kubernetes scheduler for Apache Spark™).

“Bloomberg’s innovative use of, and unique contributions to, the CNCF ecosystem highlight its commitment to cloud native computing,” said Chris Aniszczyk, COO at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “As a major contributor to CNCF projects like Prometheus and Kubernetes, we’re thrilled our End User Community and TOC voted to recognize Bloomberg’s pioneering development and hard work with this award.”

Bloomberg is one of nearly 50 organizations that are part of the CNCF End User Community, which meets regularly to share adoption best practices and feedback on project roadmaps and future projects for CNCF technical leaders to consider.

The Foundation would also like to recognize the five additional End User nominees – GitHub, Spotify, Zalando, Box and Under Armour – for their commendable contributions to the development and growth of the cloud native community.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces Launch of Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) Exam

By | Announcement

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – May 2, 2018 – KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced public availability of the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) exam and corresponding Kubernetes for Developers course.

The CNCF is continuing to invest heavily in training and certification opportunities for individuals working with cloud native technologies. After a successful launch last year of the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exam with more than 1,500 registrants to date, the CNCF is expanding certification offerings to include application developers. More than 700 developers have already signed up to beta testers the CKAD exam. The CKAD exam is now publically available for anyone to take and costs $300.

The CKAD exam certifies that users can design, build, configure, and expose cloud native applications on top of Kubernetes. A Certified Kubernetes Application Developer can define application resources and use core primitives to build, monitor, and troubleshoot scalable applications and tools in Kubernetes.

“As Kubernetes has grown, so has the demand for application developers who are knowledgeable about building on top of Kubernetes,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. ”The CKAD exam allows developers to certify their proficiency in designing and building cloud native applications for Kubernetes, while also allowing companies to confidently hire high-quality teams.”

With the majority of container-related job listings asking for proficiency in Kubernetes as an orchestration platform, the CKAD program will help expand the pool of Kubernetes experts in the market, thereby enabling continued growth across the broad set of organizations using the technology. According to Indeed.com, as of March 2018, there were approximately 6,325 job postings for software engineer jobs for every million jobs listed on Indeed.com. Over the last year, 2% of all job postings for software engineer jobs listed on the job search site listed Kubernetes as a skill within job descriptions for that role. The 2017 Linux Foundation and Dice Open Source Jobs Report found that cloud skills are the most in demand by hiring managers, with half of hiring managers stating they prefer to hire candidates with certifications. The exam is a key step in that process, allowing certified application developers to quickly establish their credibility and value in the job market, and also allowing companies to more quickly hire high-quality teams to support their growth.

CNCF, in partnership with The Linux Foundation, is also launching the Kubernetes for Developers (LFD259) online course on May 15. Registration is now open for the $299 course, which teaches how to containerize, host, deploy, and configure an application in a multi-node cluster. The course includes hands on labs, providing students with real world examples to aid in learning and understanding of concepts taught. The topics covered are directly aligned with the knowledge domains tested by the CKAD Program, and will substantially increase students’ ability to become certified.
