There was a lot of excitement this week at the Open Source Conference (OSCON) in Portland. Industry attendees learned that Google, Linux Foundation, and Industry partners created the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The organization will accelerate the development of cloud native applications and services by advancing a technology stack for container-based computing.
We were pleased to be a part of a line-up of founding members including 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.
Our role is to bring Univa’s deep experience in enterprise workload optimization and resource management to the CNCF community — particularly around the theme of enterprise-readiness for containers in production.
Enterprises want to capture the power and benefits of containerization and we look forward to being among the industry pioneers who are stepping up to this challenge. To begin, Google seeded the foundation with Kubernetes, the open source container orchestration project. The foundation will govern Kubernetes and ensure the community advances the technology stack required to support containers and microservices. We think this is a great opportunity for customers and for Univa.
The entire Univa team has worked diligently to build our reputation and our products, which are among the world’s most trusted workload optimization solutions. We will continue to give our customers the power to manage all their compute resources, no matter how big or where deployed and to accelerate the innovations of tomorrow.
Being a founding member of the CNCF is an important milestone for Univa and we look forward to bringing more value to the ecosystem in the months ahead.
