RethinkDB may have failed as a business, but it’s getting new life as part of the Linux Foundation. As announced today, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has purchased the RethinkDB intellectual property assets for $25,000, which it has relicensed under the developer-friendly Apache License (ASLv2) and gifted the code to the Linux Foundation.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) announced on Feb. 6 that it paid $25,000 to acquire all of the RethinkDB code, copyrights and assets. The CNCF then re-licensed all the code under the Apache Software License version two, which does not have the same strict requirement for code contributions. CNCF has subsequently contributed the code to the Linux Foundation. CNCF itself is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project. READ MORE.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), the open source group that’s also the home of the popular Kubernetes container management system, today announced that it has added Linkerd as its fifth hosted project. READ MORE.
The Linux Foundation’s Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is expanding its roster of hosted projects today with the inclusion of the open-source Linkerd service mesh project.
The CNCF got started in July 2015 with the Kubernetes container management platform as its first project. CNCF has since expanded by adding the Prometheus monitoring project in May 2016 and the OpenTracing project in October 2016. READ MORE.
As customer interest in the Kubernetes container management platform rises rapidly, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) arm of the Linux Foundation is gearing up to create a program to help educate managed service providers (MSPs) on how to build a practice around the Kubernetes framework developed by Google for managing containers such as Docker.

The annual Kubernetes conference, KubeCon, which was hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), was held in downtown Seattle on Nov. 8 and 9. Leaders and users of Kubernetes, Docker and cloud-native architecture technology gathered at this event to discuss the current state and the future of these technologies. READ MORE.
One of initiatives in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNFC) Charter is to provide “Well-defined APIs at borders of standardized subsystems,” and establish a standard systems architecture describing the relationship between parts. In the charter they have a block diagram of subsystems of cloud native architecture. READ MORE.
Containers are a big deal, and they’re only going to get bigger. That’s my view after attending the latest KubeCon (and CloudNativeCon) in Seattle last week. READ MORE.
Open-source software has been key to the transformation of business because it is low-cost, often free, and easy for a young company to modify and deploy. Because of these strong points, open-source software has produced powerful technologies for modern enterprise computing. To guide this explosive community, foundations have appeared, forming an alliance of businesses, startups and developers.
To gain some insight into one such foundation, John Furrier (@furrier), co-host of theCUBE*, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, visited the KubeCon 2016 conference in Seattle, WA. There, he sat down with Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. READ MORE.
