Cloud Native Computing Foundation Welcomes 38 New Members at Open Source Summit North America

Foundation reaches membership milestone, 10x growth in less than three years, from industry’s biggest cross-collaboration gathering around open source technologies

VANCOUVER, Canada – August 29, 2018 – Open Source Summit North America – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that 38 new members have joined the Foundation – growing from 28 members at the Foundation’s launch in 2015 to 284 today.

According to the findings of CNCF’s brand new survey of nearly 2,500 developer or IT-related roles, the use of Foundation projects – including Envoy, Prometheus, containerd, and CoreDNS – is up over 200 percent on average in the last 6 months.This substantial growth in adoption is, in part, due to the advantages of having a neutral home for collaboration around cloud native projects. By joining CNCF, these new members are taking an active role in supporting the ecosystem’s growth and evolution.

“As the use and adoption of open source software continue to grow, it’s paramount that both individual and enterprise users contribute back to cloud native projects in order for the community to drive sustainable and agile innovation forward,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “CNCF is thrilled to welcome these 38 new members and we look forward to bringing the entire community together later this year at our remaining KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events.”

The Foundation will host the inaugural KubeCon + CloudNativeCon China, from November 13-15 in Shanghai, and its annual North American KubeCon + CloudNativeCon event, from December 10-13 in Seattle – furthering the education and adoption of cloud native computing across the globe.
