The Cloud Native Computing Foundation Reaches 236 Members, Including 54 End Users

Foundation welcomes 19 new members from LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen to accelerate cloud native adoption across China

BEIJING, China – June 25, 2018 – LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that 19 new members have joined the Foundation.

These new community members not only demonstrate growing support for CNCF worldwide, but a particularly strong surge of growth in the Chinese market – as China is embracing cloud native and open source technologies at a rapid rate. In fact, according to IDC, China will be fifth in the world in public cloud spending by the end of 2018 at $5.4 billion.

In a recent survey conducted by CNCF, adoption of CNCF projects is growing quickly in China. Kubernetes remains the first choice for managing containers with 35 percent of respondents using the platform, while other CNCF projects – including OpenTracing, Prometheus, and gRPC – are also regularly being used in production. As a response to this growing interest, CNCF will host its first KubeCon + CloudNativeCon China in Shanghai from November 14-15.

“CNCF is thrilled to welcome 19 new members and supporters, led by a particularly strong showing of new commitment from the Chinese market,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “As our membership base continues to diversify, the cloud native ecosystem will benefit from resources and contributions from users across the globe.”
