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.
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.
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.
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.
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. .
For our KubeCon TNS Analysts Pancakes and Podcasts, held Wednesday, we invited Cisco Chief Technology Officer of the Cloud Platforms and Services Group Ken Owens, consulting analyst and TNS contributor Janakiram MSV, Google Cloud Platform Developer Advocate Kelsey Hightower, and Bitnami COO and co-founder Erica Brescia, for a discussion on how Kubernetes can progress as a community. TNS founder Alex Williams moderated the panel and TNS managing editor Joab Jackson drummed up questions from the audience.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which is sustaining and integrating open source technologies to orchestrate containers as part of a microservices architecture, launched a program today to train, certify and promote Kubernetes Managed Service Providers (KMSP), which will provide enterprises with Service Level Agreement (SLA)-backed support options, consulting and professional services by highly trained and certified service partners.
When The Linux Foundation announced the Cloud Native Computing Foundation last year, its members already represented some of the most powerful technology and open source leaders around. Right out of the gate, members included AT&T, Box, Cisco, Cloud Foundry Foundation, CoreOS, Cycle Computing, Docker, eBay, Goldman Sachs, Google, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Joyent, Kismatic, Mesosphere, Red Hat, Switch SUPERNAP, Twitter, Univa, VMware and Weaveworks.
