The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has announced its second hosted project will involve developing an open source monitoring system and alerting toolkit for companies embracing the cloud.
There are a lot of moving parts in a modern platform, and in this regard, they are no different from the platforms made a generation earlier.
Chris Aniszczyk, interim executive director of Cloud Native Computing Foundation at The Linux Foundation, reached out to us to discuss the Foundation’s work towards the development of a new set of common container technologies.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is a Linux Foundation project and organization dedicated to advancing the development of cloud native applications and services.
The inexorable shift to cloud computing and the embrace of scalable cloud-native applications and services has prompted an industry effort to harmonize IT technologies emerging around the nascent application container movement and the packaging of application development and operations.
Docker’s mission is to build tools of mass innovation. To achieve this goal, we collaborate with the best developers in the world, working with the open source projects and organizations tackling the various aspects of containerization: the Docker open source projects with more than 2,000 contributors, the Apache Software Foundation with Apache Aurora, the Linux Foundation with the MirageOS, the Open Container Initiative (OCI) collaborative projects and the Cloud Foundry foundation.
