Cloud Native Computing Foundation Continues Steady Growth with 30 New Members
SAN FRANCISCO, June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Open Source Summit North America -- The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, today announced that 30 new members and end user supporters have joined the foundation, bringing total membership to 570 organizations.
This growth comes as CNCF has just announced its new General Manager, cloud native industry veteran Priyanka Sharma. More than 170 new member companies joined the CNCF in 2019, an increase of more than 50 percent. The first quarter of 2020 was CNCF's largest quarter to date. On the heels of this massive growth, CNCF is focused on new ways of bringing together its members, projects, and end user community to foster collaboration and innovation.
"This is such an exciting time to be involved with CNCF and the broader cloud native community," said Sharma. "As our lives have drastically changed, there is a huge opportunity for cloud native and open source technologies to step up – from enabling remote work to providing reliable and scalable infrastructure for technologies used on the front lines. I look forward to seeing what our community can accomplish as we continue to work together."
These new members will join CNCF this summer for the upcoming 2020 KubeCon + CloudNativeCon events, including KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU Virtual from August 17–20, 2020, and KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA from November 17–20, 2020 in Boston. The upcoming KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU Virtual will be CNCF's first virtual event, and the foundation is focused on making it the biggest and best event to date.
