Sustaining open source cloud native projects like Kubernetes and Prometheus

The CNCF was founded in 2015 with the mission to promote cloud native computing across the industry and provide a home for the Kubernetes community and related open source projects. Cloud native computing uses an open source software stack to be:

  • Containerized. Each part (applications, processes, etc) is packaged in its own container. This facilitates reproducibility, transparency, and resource isolation.
  • Dynamically orchestrated. Containers are actively scheduled and managed to optimize resource utilization.
  • Microservices oriented. Applications are segmented into microservices. This significantly increases the overall agility and maintainability of applications.
