Foundation Reaches Membership Milestone as 59 Organizations Including Booz Allen, Ericsson and Simplenexus Add Their Support
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus, announced that 59 new members and end user supporters have joined the Foundation.
The industry is reaching an inflection point where cloud native technologies are not only being developed at a record pace, but many are becoming mature offerings. As the Foundation crosses the 375 member mark, open source leaders are meeting this week at the Linux Foundation’s Open Source Leadership Summit, continuing to foster innovation, growth and partnerships among the leaders and corporations working in open technology development.
“Crossing the 375 mark is an incredible milestone for the Foundation, especially with more than 75 organizations in our end user community” said Dan Kohn, executive director of Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “Companies like NVIDIA, MemSQL and Mattermost are reaping real value from cloud native technologies, and we only expect this to accelerate as these technologies mature and solidify their place in the market. We remain impressed by the technical innovation and growth in the ecosystem and are happy to work with our members to support the thriving cloud native community.”
These new members will join CNCF for the upcoming 2019 KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events, including KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU from May 20-23 in Barcelona and KubeCon + CloudNativeCon + Open Source Summit in China from June 24-26 in Shanghai.
