Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces CoreDNS Graduation

By | Announcement

Fast-growing DNS server that serves as official default DNS for Kubernetes

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., January 24, 2018 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that CoreDNS is the first project of 2019 to graduate, following last year’s graduations of Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Envoy. To move from the maturity level of incubation to graduation, projects must demonstrate thriving adoption, diversity, a formal governance process, and a strong commitment to community sustainability and inclusivity.

CoreDNS is a fast, flexible, and modern DNS server that also provides service discovery in cloud native deployments. As it provides a backwards-compatible, but extensible, integration with Kubernetes, the most recent Kubernetes release (1.13) officially recommends CoreDNS as the default DNS for all deployments moving forward. The server can also be used for native cloud integration in hybrid cloud environments with AWS, using AWS Route53 and etcd – with plans to add Google Cloud DNS support soon.

“CoreDNS has been a part of CNCF for nearly two years and has been cultivated by the community to reach graduation and officially serve as the DNS server for Kubernetes,” said Chris Aniszczyk, COO of CNCF. “Also, CoreDNS is a fantastic standalone DNS server that continues to be used in more environments – we’re excited to continue to support the community as it grows.”

The project was created in March 2016 by Miek Gieben, who was then a site reliability engineer at Google. In building CoreDNS, the community took into account the limitations of other DNS servers to create a generic DNS server that could talk to multiple backends – like etcd, Consul and Kubernetes. CoreDNS later joined the Cloud Native Sandbox in 2017, and became an Incubating project in February 2018. Today, the project has over 100 contributors, 16 active maintainers, and many organizations using it in production in and outside of Kubernetes – including Bose, Hellofresh, Skyscanner, SoundCloud, Trainline, and Zalando.

“Since joining CNCF in early 2017, CoreDNS has been able to see fantastic community growth and amazing uses in production,” said Yong Tang, CoreDNS maintainer. “We’re incredibly thankful to CNCF who has helped make CoreDNS a successful project, and look forward to working with CNCF to continue the growth of our community.”

“The CoreDNS project and community have come a long way, resulting in the huge milestone of graduating as a project within CNCF,” said Michael Grosser, CoreDNS maintainer and founder of Okkur Labs. “From a simple DNS server exposing Prometheus metrics, to a full-fledged DNS solution with huge flexibility built-in. Becoming a core component in most Kubernetes clusters, bringing more stability and flexibility to users, gives us confidence in the awesome community supporting CoreDNS.”

“The flexible, plugin-based architecture of CoreDNS has proven to be a powerful design for a DNS server. The ease of integrating with and extending CoreDNS has made it critical to implementing a wide variety of DNS services and use cases from Kubernetes service discovery to policy-based DNS and ad blocking,” said John Belamaric, senior staff software engineer, Google Cloud and CoreDNS senior maintainer. “CNCF’s support for the project has been critical to the success of CoreDNS, and we are excited to graduate and continue growing our diverse community.”

“As a project maintainer, I’ve focused on tuning CoreDNS for its adoption by the Kubernetes community, collaborating on Kubernetes deployments of CoreDNS, and validating the project as the DNS Server for Kubernetes clusters,” said Francois Tur, software manager at Infoblox “Today’s graduation of CoreDNS from CNCF is a great achievement for our project community. This journey started more than two years ago and we’re just getting started.”

To officially graduate from incubating status, the project adopted the CNCF Code of Conduct. The CoreDNS team has also completed 12 releases in the past year, and now has 35 built-in plugins and 15 external, with several developed for the Kubernetes community. It participated in the past two years of Google Summer of Code, in which mentors are paired with student interns to help advance growing cloud native projects.

“At Infoblox Inc., we’re proud to use CoreDNS in our SAAS DNS offering, which we’ve deployed with multiple instances of CoreDNS globally. It’s currently serving production DNS traffic for all Infoblox Cloud customers, including some Fortune 500 companies,” said Naveen Singh, senior software manager at Infoblox. “We appreciate CoreDNS’ plug-in architecture, which offers greater flexibility, increased development speed and fast release cycles for us.”

“Building GitNS.com on a solid foundation with CoreDNS was a great decision. The essential nature of DNS made it paramount to build on top of a performant, reliable, and extensible system,” said Michael Grosser, founder of GitNS. “The project has an incredible community we are more than happy to support. With CoreDNS’ graduation from CNCF, it becomes one of the best DNS platforms to build infrastructure and custom use cases on.”

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces Envoy Graduation

By | Announcement

Airbnb, eBay, Google, Pinterest, Salesforce and More Adopt Fast-Growing Service and Edge Proxy

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – November 28, 2018 – AWS re:Invent – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that Envoy proxy is now the third project to graduate, following Kubernetes and Prometheus. To move from the maturity level of incubation to graduation, projects must demonstrate thriving adoption, a documented neutral governance process, multi-organization committership, and a strong commitment to community sustainability and inclusivity.

“Since joining CNCF, Envoy proxy has been one of our fastest-growing projects and has undoubtedly contributed to the momentum we’re seeing within the service and edge proxy space,” said Chris Aniszczyk, COO of CNCF. “With users at many of today’s largest scale organizations, and some incredibly bright developer minds behind it, we’re excited to continue cultivating Envoy’s community as a newly graduated project.”

Originally created at Lyft, Envoy is a high-performance open source edge, middle, and service proxy. The project helps ease the transition to, and operation of, cloud native architectures by managing the interactions among microservices in order to ensure application performance.

Envoy’s out-of-process architecture can be used with any application, in any language or runtime; supported protocols and features include HTTP/2, gRPC, MongoDB, Redis, Thrift, external authorization, global rate limiting, a rich configuration API, and much more.

“The growth of Envoy over the last two years has been astounding, and beyond anything that I would have ever believed when I started the project,” said Matt Klein, software engineer at Lyft and architect of Envoy. “From end users, to creators of higher level products, to the major cloud providers, the breadth of Envoy-based solutions continues to grow and amaze me. Graduating from the CNCF is a major milestone and an indication that Envoy’s community is strong and the project is ready for wide-enterprise adoption.”

Thanks to features honed by its active maintainer base and nearly 250 contributors, Envoy was recognized by InfoWorld as one of 2018’s Best of Open Source Softwares for Cloud Computing. The project’s growing user community – which includes Airbnb, Booking.com, eBay, F5, Google, IBM, Lyft, Medium, Microsoft, Netflix, Pinterest, Salesforce, Square, Stripe, Tencent, Twilio, Verizon, VSCO, and many more – has submitted over 3,000 commits to date.

“We’re so excited to celebrate Envoy’s graduation from the CNCF incubator,” said Hirotaka Ichikawa, Actapio. “It demonstrates the maturity of Envoy for enterprise use cases like ours. For example, Actapio, a subsidiary of Yahoo Japan, partnered with Heptio to use the Envoy proxy in building an open source project, Heptio Gimbal, that can handle large-scale ingress across hundreds of Kubernetes and OpenStack clusters in the private cloud. With the help of Envoy, we’ve been able to dramatically accelerate our software development and release cycle.”

“Envoy Proxy has rapidly become the industry leading cloud native L7 proxy. Thousands of organizations have deployed Envoy on Kubernetes with the Ambassador API Gateway,” said Richard Li, CEO of Datawire. “We love Envoy’s feature set and industry-leading architecture and we are thrilled to be a part of Envoy’s vibrant community.”

“Envoy is not only a critical building block for Istio, it’s an essential component in several of our up and coming Cloud Networking services,” said Harvey Tuch, staff software engineer, Google Cloud and Envoy senior maintainer. “Envoy and Istio are deployed in production environments across the globe. As a strong contributor to and supporter of Envoy, we are excited to see Envoy graduate and get recognition for its technology, community growth, and applicability to a variety of use cases.”

“Envoy provides the application networking abstractions that power 100 percent of the edge and service-to-service traffic within Lyft’s real-time microservice architecture. It has been a crucial and reliable component that has allowed Lyft to scale to hundreds of services, a thousand engineers, and millions of requests per second of traffic,” said Peter Morelli, VP of engineering at Lyft. “I have no doubt that without Envoy it would have been a more difficult path to achieve our goals and scale.”

“At Pinterest, we use Envoy as an edge proxy to serve over 250 million monthly unique users. As both users and code contributors, we have enjoyed collaborating with the Envoy project, and we are excited for the project’s graduation,” said Brian Pane, engineering manager at Pinterest. “We look forward to applying Envoy to solve new scaling challenges in the future, as well as continuing to contribute features and optimizations to the Envoy project.”

“What makes Envoy such a successful and broadly useful project is its robust and extendable architecture,” said Idit Levine, founder and CEO of Solo. “Envoy users can extend Envoy in any way that best compliments their own technology. This made it easy for us at Solo to develop our technology on top of Envoy, and accelerate our innovation. We were also proud to contribute to the upstream development efforts. We are extremely happy for our friends at Envoy for the much deserved graduation.”

“Envoy is a great project for high performance and reliability. Our team has adopted Envoy in our TSF (Tencent Service Framework) product,” said Andrew Shan (单家骏), middleware senior engineer at Tencent. “We are now working on some optimizations and plugins in Envoy, and look forward to cooperating with the community.”

“Before Envoy, there has never been a centralized piece of software that is open, performant, extensible, and provides programmability of network and security behavior as a first class concept,” said Varun Talwar, CEO of Tetratea stealth startup around Envoy and service mesh.

To officially graduate from incubating status, the project also adopted the CNCF Code of Conduct.

Envoy Background

Envoy, performing the role of a service and edge proxy, helps ease the transition to, and operation of, cloud native architectures by managing the interactions among microservices in order to ensure application performance. Advanced features such as timeouts, rate limiting, circuit breaking, load balancing, retries, stats, logging, and distributed tracing are required to handle network failures in a fault tolerant and reliable way.

The project’s first hosted event, EnvoyCon – co-located with Kubecon + CloudNativeCon North America – sold-out weeks before its December 10 kick-off and is set to welcome 350+ community members to Seattle.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Welcomes Hortonworks as Gold Member

By | Announcement

Leading global data management platform provider increases commitment to cloud native solutions for big data

SAN FRANCISCO – September 25, 2018 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that Hortonworks® has joined the Foundation as a Gold Member.

Hortonworks delivers open source global data management platforms and services for customers’ use in managing the full lifecycle of data, whether it lives on-premises, in the cloud or out at the edge. The company has long held a focus on driving innovation in open source communities such as Apache Hadoop, Apache NiFi and Apache Spark, and serves as a founding member of ODPi and leading contributor to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF).

“Hortonworks was founded on the principle that the best way to deliver next-generation data management solutions is through open source and that when done under the governance of organizations like CNCF, open technologies help drive innovation far faster than any single vendor could achieve,” said Scott Gnau, chief technology officer of Hortonworks. “By joining CNCF, we look forward to supporting the growth of cloud native solutions for big data management at a pivotal time in the industry.”

Ovum predicts that by next year, half of all new big data workloads will be deployed in the cloud. To address this growth and need for reliable, cross-vendor innovation, Hortonworks announced a new collaborative effort with IBM and Red Hat to transform Hadoop into a cloud native platform and to accelerate containerized big data workloads. Similarly, the company also announced its expanded partnership with Google Cloud to accelerate big data analytics in the cloud, similar to the partnerships it has in place with AWS and Azure.

“Hortonworks has not only been a leader in open source development for big data but is also helping to bridge the gap between big data solutions and the cloud in ways that benefit the community as a whole,” said Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “We’re thrilled to have Hortonworks join CNCF and continue its efforts to spearhead cross-industry collaboration and bring cloud native innovation into big data.”

As a CNCF member, Hortonworks plans to collaborate with the community on current and future cloud native technologies that will help drive the open source big data industry forward.

Hortonworks will be one of many CNCF members attending the inaugural KubeCon + CloudNativeCon China, from November 13-15 in Shanghai, and the annual North American KubeCon + CloudNativeCon event, from December 10-13 in Seattle.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Receives $9 Million Cloud Credit Grant from Google Cloud to Fund Kubernetes Development, Empower Community

By | Announcement

Google’s donation will allow Kubernetes community to self-manage cloud resources, increasing project control and velocity

VANCOUVER, Canada – August 29, 2018 – Open Source Summit North America – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that Google Cloud has begun transferring ownership and management of the Kubernetes project’s cloud resources to CNCF community contributors. Google Cloud will help fund this move with a $9 million grant of Google Cloud Platform credits, divided over three years, to cover the infrastructure costs associated with Kubernetes development and distribution, such as running the continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines and providing the container image download repository.

With this move, CNCF and Kubernetes community members will take ownership of all day-to-day Kubernetes project operations. Responsibilities will include operational tasks for the development of Kubernetes such as testing and builds, as well as maintenance and operations for the distribution of Kubernetes. The Google Cloud credit grant will primarily be dedicated to funding scalability testing and maintenance of the infrastructure required to run Kubernetes development, ensuring that the project continues to be battle-tested and enterprise-ready.

“With the rapid growth of Kubernetes, and broad participation from organizations, cloud providers and users alike, we’re thrilled to see Google Cloud hand over ownership of Kubernetes CI/CD to the community that helped build it into one of the highest-velocity projects of all time,” said Dan Kohn, executive director of CNCF. “Google Cloud’s generous contribution is an important step in empowering the Kubernetes community to take ownership of its management and sustainability – all for the benefit of the project’s ever-growing user base.”

To learn more about today’s news, please read William Denniss’ post on the Google Cloud Platform blog.

The contribution of the Kubernetes project from Google occurred soon after the creation of CNCF in late 2015 and, until now, Google Cloud has continued to manage and fund the Kubernetes CI/CD processes. Since coming into CNCF, Kubernetes has grown into one of the world’s most popular open source projects and, according to Redmonk, is running in more than 50 percent of Fortune 100 companies for container orchestration. To facilitate and support this growth, CNCF established a Certified Kubernetes program to define a consistent experience across Kubernetes distributions, launched the Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) program ensuring that enterprises receive support to roll out new applications more quickly and more efficiently than before and shepherded Kubernetes through the incubation process to become the first project to graduate from CNCF.

“Since releasing Kubernetes in 2014, Google has remained heavily involved in the project and actively contributes to its vibrant community. We also believe that for an open source project to truly thrive, all aspects of a mature project should be maintained by the people developing it. In passing the baton of operational responsibilities to Kubernetes contributors with the stewardship of the CNCF, we look forward to seeing how the project continues to evolve and experience breakneck adoption,” said Sarah Novotny, Head of Open Source Strategy for Google Cloud.

Global organizations like Ancestry, Blackrock, BlaBlaCar, Bloomberg, Buffer, Comcast, eBay, Goldman Sachs, GolfNow, ING, JD.com, Lyft, Nordstrom, Pearson, Pinterest, Sling TV, Squarespace, Ticketmaster, The New York Times, Uber, and many more use Kubernetes in production at massive scale.
