SAN FRANCISCO -- The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project and organization dedicated to advancing the development of cloud native applications and services, today announced new members from across the industry, its formal open governance structure and new details about its technology stack.
The intent to form the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) was announced earlier this year at OSCON to support development in a cloud native environment. Cloud native applications are container-packaged, dynamically scheduled and micro services-oriented. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation focuses on development of open source technologies, reference architectures and common format for Cloud native applications or services. This work provides the necessary infrastructure for Internet companies and enterprises to scale their businesses.
Today this work is resource intensive, requiring companies to assemble a team of experts that can integrate disparate technologies and maintain all of them. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation seeks to improve the overall developer experience, paving the way for faster code reuse, improved machine efficiency, reduced costs and increases in the overall agility and maintainability of applications.
Companies from across the industry are coming together to formally invest in this work. The full roster of founding and new member organizations committed to CNCF include: Apcera, Apprenda, AT&T, Box, Cisco, ClusterHQ, Container Solutions, Cloudsoft Corporation, CoreOS, Cycle Computing, Datawise.io, Deis,Inc/Engine Yard, Docker, eBay, Eldarion, Fujitsu, Google, Huawei, IBM, iguaz.io, Infoblox, Intel, ISHI Systems, Joyent, Kismatic, Mesosphere, Metaswitch Networks (Project Calico), NCSOFT, NEC, NetApp, NGINX, Odin, Portworx, Rancher Labs, Red Hat, RX-M, LLC, Scalock, Software Engineering Lab of Zhejiang University, Switch SuperNap, Sysdig, Twistlock, Twitter, Univa Corporation, VMware, Weaveworks, and Williams Garcia.
