Kubernetes, the open-source container management tool Google launched last February, hit version 1.0 today. With this update, Google now considers Kubernetes ready for production. What’s more important, though, Google is also ceding control over Kubernetes and is donating it to a newly formed foundation – the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) that will be run by the Linux Foundation. Other partners in the new foundation include AT&T, Box, Cisco, Cloud Foundry Foundation, CoreOS, Cycle Computing, Docker, eBay, Goldman Sachs, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Joyent, Kismatic, Mesosphere, Red Hat, Switch SUPERNAP, Twitter, Univa, VMware and Weaveworks.
The Linux Foundation today is announcing the official formation of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation in a bid to advance cloud application management and interoperability. The new effort will be operated as a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project and brings together many of the major players in the cloud application infrastructure space in a joint open-source initiative.
In collaboration with 18 vendors and IT organizations, The Linux Foundation announces foundation of CNCF.
Bryan Cantrill says that cloud computing is on the cusp of revolution.
Today, when companies use services like Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud or the Google Compute Engine, the idea is that they’re running their websites and software applications on virtual machines-computer servers that exist only as software.
