Kubernetes and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Aug 3, 2015 / in Main Blog / by Diamanti

Kudos to Google’s Kubernetes team for reaching the version 1.0 milestone, and for simultaneously announcing the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and seeding it with Kubernetes as a core technology. Stewarded by the Linux Foundation, with participation and contributions from Docker, IBM, VMWare, Intel, Cisco, Joyent, CoreOS, RedHat, Mesosphere, and Univa, the CNCF looks like a great way to drive innovation, collaboration, and standardization around container and microservices oriented technologies. Datawise.io (now Diamanti) has signed up for membership in CNCF and is looking forward to contributing to the next round of discussions and planning.

The new frameworks enable 3rd parties to extend Docker containers with features beyond the “batteries included” defaults. Initially released as experimental previews with Docker 1.7, the capabilities are maturing quickly with Docker 1.8. These developments are exciting to us at Datawise.io (now Diamanti) because they enable innovations to improve the performance and production readiness of containers deployed as densely packed, interconnected services across a cluster of hosts.
