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.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation wants to help enterprises deploy Kubernetes, the open-source system for automating container deployment, scaling and management. The organization announced a new program to train, certify and promote Kubernetes Managed Service Projects. The new program is designed to provide enterprises with the support they need to roll out new apps safely and securely.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, which is tasked with nurturing the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration platform project among others, has been busy.
On Tuesday, the group announced a host of new members, a new certification course and a new project at the inaugural Cloud Native Con, which is co-located with the KubeCon event in Seattle.
More than 1,000 developers, vendors and end-users of open-source software have gathered in Seattle this week for the sold-out CloudNativeCon + KubeCon, a conference devoted to technologies for microservices, containers and the cloud. The show is sponsored by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), formed in December 2015 as part of the non-profit Linux Foundation, a nonprofit advancing professional open-source management for mass collaboration. .
Today’s cloud native ecosystem is growing at an incredibly rapid pace – as new technologies are continuously introduced and current applications are ever-evolving.
Taking the lead in bringing together the industry’s top developers, end users, and vendors, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) hosts critical components of the cloud native software stacks including Kubernetes, Prometheus, and OpenTracing and serves as a neutral home for collaboration.
Docker containerization has established itself as a winner with developers. But now many organizations are looking to move these containers into production and the choices are plenty, said Dan Kohn, the new executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in late August at Cloud Native Day in Toronto in an interview with The New Stack.
The CNCF works to host critical components of the software stacks in use here including Kubernetes and Prometheus – overall the organisation insists that it exists as a neutral home for collaboration as part of The Linux Foundation.
