Google-derived container code transferred to Foundation as its first project.
Docker could become the next generation compute platform, and even replace server virtualization, but the container technology has some growing up to do first.
A group of the tech world’s most influential forces signed up the Cloud Native Computing Foundation yesterday, and kicked off a technical board to review submissions.
CNCF announces new members from across the industry, its formal open governance structure and new details about its technology stack.
CNCF seeks to lessen this container confusion while advancing the development of cloud-native applications and services.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, launched earlier this year, fleshed out its mission Wednesday with new members and technology details.
“Cloud native” is starting to mean a set of specific things about how business will run on software, Cloud Foundry CEO Sam Ramji explains.
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.
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?
