InformationWeek: “Cloud Native: What it means, why it matters"

July 30, 2015

“Cloud native” is starting to mean a set of specific things about how business will run on software, Cloud Foundry CEO Sam Ramji explains.

Wired: “Open source is going even more open-because it has to”

July 28, 2015

Google often gives its software away for free. It has long believed in open source software.

But last week, the company took this idea to the next level. It gave away all rights to Kubernetes, a cloud computing system originally designed by Google engineers, asking a non-profit to manage its development. It didn’t just share some software code with the world. It agreed to let an independent party oversee the development of the code.

RedMonk: “The implications of cloud native”

July 24, 2015

Two months ago, “Cloud Native” was something of a new term, adopted most visibly by the Cloud Foundry project; a term both aspirational and unburdened by legacy at the same time. As of this week at OSCON, it’s a statement, borderline manifesto. As if it wasn’t enough that Google and a host of others adopted the term as well, it now has its own open source foundation – the imaginatively titled Cloud Native Computing Foundation. In the wake of its relatively sudden emergence, the obvious questions are first what is cloud native, and second what does it mean for the industry?

Box: "Box and IBM partner to transform work in the cloud"

At Box, we’re building out a platform that enables enterprises to become more digital. This means enabling life sciences organizations to collaborate on drug research, empowering financial institutions to accept and process loans without ever printing a piece of paper, and working with government institutions to dramatically speed up processes to drive better outcomes.

Silicon Angle: "The Cloud Native Computing Foundation bids to kickstart container interoperability"

July 22, 2015

The Linux Foundation is teaming up with 18 technology giants and IT organizations to create the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, an initiative that’s hoping to make it easier for businesses to build and deploy containerized cloud applications oriented around microservices.

InfoWorld: "Linux Foundation unboxes another container consortium"

July 21, 2015

A mere month after Docker and other companies formed the Open Container Project, which placed their software-containerization concepts under the control of the Linux Foundation, another major initiative involving containers is taking off — and many of the same people are in the driver’s seat and riding along.

ZDNet: "Cloud Native Computing Foundation seeks to Forge Cloud and Container Unity"

July 21, 2015

Open-source communities seem to do a better job than standards committees in creating new software that sticks to a common plan. In the latest example, The Linux Foundation, is once more fostering a new group: The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The CNCF, building on the newly laid foundation of Kubernetes 1.0, will seek to bring unification and creativity to cloud native applications and services.
