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.

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.

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.”
