Company behind leading open source API and service lifecycle management tool increases support for global cloud native technology growth

BARCELONA, SPAIN – May 21, 2019 – KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Barcelona –The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that Kong Inc. has upgraded its membership to Gold.

Kong is the company behind the Kong project, a cloud native, fast, scalable and distributed microservice abstraction layer. The Kong project was made available as an open source project in 2015, and today is widely used in production at companies ranging from startups to Global 5000 companies and government organizations. The open source Kong project has been downloaded more than 75 million times and has reached over 120 Kong Enterprise customers including Yahoo! Japan, WeWork, and SoulCycle.

“As we continue to grow our global community, upgrading our membership with CNCF was a natural choice,” said Marco Palladino, CTO and co-founder of Kong. “We have benefited greatly as a CNCF member and are happy to be a part of a like-minded community which shares our belief in creating open access across different clouds.”

The company originally joined CNCF in May 2017 as Mashape. Since then, the company has grown its global community and enterprise adoption, leading to a rebrand to Kong and the launch of Kong Enterprise. The company also recently announced Kong 1.0, held its first Kong Summit and received $43 million in Series C funding, which it is using to grow its global open source community and expand international and enterprise adoption.

Kong is focused on building a service control platform that acts as the nervous system for an organization’s modern software architectures by intelligently brokering information across all services. This will be designed for the modern era of software development and seamlessly connects APIs and microservices across cloud-native, hybrid, and on premise environments. The software is available through a variety of distributions, including a Kubernetes Ingress controller for Kong.

“We’re thrilled that Kong has decided to increase its support and engagement with CNCF,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “With their focus on open source and cloud native, Kong is a strong member of the open source community and their membership provides resources for activities like bug bounties and security audits that help our community continue to thrive.”

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 11, 2019 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that Fluentd is its sixth project to graduate, following Kubernetes, Prometheus, Envoy, CoreDNS and containerd. 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.

“In the two and a half years since Fluentd became a part of CNCF, we’ve seen it grow beyond a project to a full ecosystem of integrations and third party components,” said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO/COO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “With an active community of contributors and users, the CNCF TOC felt Fluentd was ready for graduation and we look forward to cultivating their community.”

Fluentd was created in 2011 by Sadayuki “Sada” Furuhashi, co-founder of Treasure Data, Inc., as an open source data collector for building a Unified Logging Layer, which unifies the data collection and consumption for a better use and understanding of data. In November 2016, Fluentd was accepted as CNCF’s sixth hosted project after Kubernetes, Prometheus and OpenTracing.

Fluentd solves logging problems at scale, not just for standalone applications, but it streamlines components of distributed architectures, making it an integral tool for any cloud native organization” said Masahiro Nakagawa, Principal Engineer at Arm®Treasure Data and core Fluentd Maintainer. “We’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to collaborate with the CNCF community and to grow our user base, and are honored to graduate.”

With more than 900 plugins connecting to its many data sources and data outputs; including Docker, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, etc., Fluentd was the 2016 Bossie Awards winner for the best open source datacenter and cloud software. More than 5,000 data-driven community users rely on Fluentd to differentiate their products and services through a better use and understanding of their log data, including Atlassian, Amazon Web Services, Backplane, Change.org, CyberAgent, DeNa, Drecom, GREE, GungHo, LINE Corp, Nintendo, Microsoft, Slideshare and many others.

“Fluentd has earned its place as the industry standard for log collection and shipping, and I am excited to see it as a graduated CNCF project,” said Gabe Monroy, Lead Program Manager for Containers, Microsoft Azure. “At Microsoft, we are proud to use Fluentd to power our cloud native logging subsystems and we look forward to working with the growing the open source community around Fluentd.”

Fluentd now has 4 active maintainers, over 160 contributors and more than 4,400 commits. It also has 189 official releases, more than 48 Million Docker Hub pulls, 941 plugins available made by the community and over 7500 Github Stars.

“As one of the longest standing incubating projects within CNCF, Fluentd has demonstrated impressive growth, adoption, and numerous integrations within the broader community,” said Brian Grant, Principal Software Engineer at Google and CNCF TOC representative. “We have no doubt that Fluentd is ready to move to this next stage, and are excited to see what the project continues to accomplish.”

To officially graduate from incubating status, the project also adopted the CNCF Code of Conduct, earned a Core Infrastructure Initiative Best Practices Badge. Completed in August 2017, the CII badge shows an ongoing commitment to code quality and security best practices.  

Fluentd Background

Fluentd collects events from various data sources and writes them to files, RDBMS, NoSQL, IaaS, SaaS, Hadoop and so on. Fluentd helps you unify your logging infrastructure. All components are available under the Apache 2 License, and are overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. For downloads, documentation, and how to get involved, visit https://github.com/fluent/fluentd, https://www.fluentd.org/ and https://twitter.com/fluentd.

The Linux Foundation is developing an elearning course titled Cloud Native Logging with Fluentd, which will be available in May 2019.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announces containerd Graduation

By | Announcement

Alibaba Cloud, AWS, Cloud Foundry, Docker, Google, IBM, Rancher Labs and more support promotion of ecosystem’s most-widely adopted container runtime

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., February 28, 2019 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that containerd is the fifth project to graduate, following Kubernetes, Prometheus, Envoy, and CoreDNS. 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.

“After being accepted into CNCF nearly two years ago, containerd continues to see significant momentum – showcasing the demand for foundational container technologies,” said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “A lot of work and collaboration from the community went into the development and testing of a stable, core container runtime, the community worked hard to broaden its maintainer and adoption base, on top of going through a external security audit so I’m thrilled to see the project graduate.”

Born at Docker in 2014, containerd started out as a lower-layer runtime manager for the Docker engine. Following it’s acceptance into CNCF in March 2017, containerd has become an industry-standard container runtime focused on simplicity, robustness and portability with its widest usage and adoption as the layer between the Docker engine and the OCI runc executor.

“When Docker contributed containerd to the community, our goal was to share a robust and extensible runtime that millions of users and tens of thousands of organizations have already standardized on as part of Docker Engine,” said Michael Crosby, containerd maintainer and Docker engineer. “It is rewarding to see increased adoption and further innovation with containerd over the past year as we expanded the scope to address the needs of modern container platforms like Docker platform and the Kubernetes ecosystem. As adoption of containerd continues to grow, we look forward to continued collaboration across the ecosystem to continue  to push our industry forward.”

“The IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service (IKS) is focused on providing an awesome managed Kubernetes experience for our customers. To achieve this, we are always looking at streamlining our architecture and operational posture in IKS,” said Dan Berg, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service. “Moving to containerd has helped to simplify the Kubernetes architecture that we configure and manage on behalf of customers. By adopting containerd as our container engine, we have reduced an additional layer in the architecture which has both improved operations and increased service performance for our customers.”

containerd has had a variety of maintainers and reviewers since its inception, with 14 committers, 4,406 commits and 166 contributors currently from companies including Alibaba,  Cruise Automation, Docker, Facebook, Google, Huawei, IBM, Microsoft, NTT, Tesla, and many more. containerd project statistics, contributor stats, and more can be found on DevStats.

“Since its inception, Alibaba has been using containerd and we are thrilled to see the project hit this milestone. containerd is playing a critical role as an open, reliable and common foundation of container runtimes. At Alibaba Cloud, we take advantage of simplicity, robustness and extensibility of containerd in Alibaba Cloud Kubernetes Service and Serverless Kubernetes.” said Li Yi, Senior Staff Engineer, Alibaba Cloud. “Alibaba team will continue our commitment to the community to drive innovation forward.”

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, containerd also had to earn (and maintain) a Core Infrastructure Initiative Best Practices Badge. Completed on September 1, 2018, the CII badge shows an ongoing commitment to code quality and security best practices.

containerd Background

  • containerd is an industry-standard container runtime with an emphasis on simplicity, robustness and portability. containerd is available as a daemon for Linux and Windows.
  • containerd manages the complete container lifecycle of its host system, from image transfer and storage to container execution and supervision to low-level storage to network attachments and beyond.

CNCF Launches Cloud Native Network Functions (CNF) Testbed

By | Announcement

Open source initiative validates the benefits of telcos running ONAP network functions on Kubernetes

BARCELONA, February 25, 2019 – Mobile World Congress – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced, in partnership with LF Networking (LFN), the open source Cloud native Network Function (CNF) Testbed. At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, CNCF is demoing the same networking code running as Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) on OpenStack and as CNFs on Kubernetes to showcase the performance improvements from avoiding virtualization overhead.

“CNFs are emerging as the network architecture of the future, for many of the same reasons that containers and Kubernetes are becoming the standard platform for enterprise computing,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “We’re excited to continue collaborating with LF Networking to provide telcos and their vendors a way to make replicable comparisons between VNFs and CNFs.”

The CNF Testbed enables organizations to reliably test network functions from ONAP or their own networking code as VNFs and CNFs and compare the performance and resiliency between running on Kubernetes and OpenStack, on the same underlying hardware. As telecom architecture evolves from VNFs into CNFs, the benefits include cost savings from improved bin packing, higher development velocity, and resiliency to failures of individual CNFs, machines, and even data centers.

ONAP, as part of LF Networking, provides a comprehensive platform for real-time, policy-driven orchestration and automation of physical and virtual network functions. It was announced last year that ONAP is now a part of the cncf.ci project, which CNCF runs to integrate, test and deploy CNCF and LF projects on K8s running on bare metal. The CNF Testbed uses several open source VNFs from ONAP’s virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE) use case, while also repackaging the code as containers to be CNFs.

“It’s great to see the collaborative work of ONAP and Kubernetes, two of the fastest-growing Linux Foundation projects, as networking and cloud platforms enabling next-generation architectures,” said Arpit Joshipura, General Manager, Networking, Edge, and IoT, The Linux Foundation. “We’re excited to assist the CNF Testbed in demonstrating a path for the industry to move from VNFs to CNFs.”

The CNF Testbed leverages the Community Infrastructure Lab which makes use of credits generously provided by bare-metal hosting company Packet. The Testbed continues the focus on continuous integration (CI) and replicability which have been hallmarks of the development of Kubernetes. The Kubernetes project runs over 10,000 CI jobs each weekday, which is made possible via the $9 million in Google Cloud Platform credits donated from Google to CNCF last year. Rather than needing to trust the initial results of the CNF Testbed, anyone can replicate the results for themselves with just a copy of the open source CNF Testbed repository and an API key for accessing Packet.

Organizations interested in learning more about CNFs can do so at the twice-a-month Birds of a Feather (BoF) meeting. Details are in the CNF Testbed repo.
