The Cloud Native Computing Foundation is growing steadily. The organization welcomed more than 38 new members, bumping the total to 800.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is part of the Linux Foundation. The CNCF is committed to making cloud-native technology accessible to all. Cloud-native technology includes solutions for developing and running containers, microservices and service meshes. The CNCF oversees the development of influential open-source projects such as Kubernetes, Envoy and Prometheus.

Organizations that use the CNCF’s projects in their offering can join the CNCF as members. Some of the members are AWS, Google Cloud, IBM and Microsoft. They build on Kubernetes, among other things, developing proprietary distributions and management tools.

Although it’s not a prerequisite, most members give back to the community. For example, knowledge, in the form of training on cloud-native technology. The CNCF ensures that members and end users of cloud-native technologies can get in touch. That’s why the CNCF organizes KubeCon, an annual conference. The European edition is currently taking place in Valencia, Spain. There, the CNCF announced that its member count has risen to 800 organizations.

“We are thrilled to welcome so many Europe-based organizations this quarter”, said Priyanka Sharma, executive director of the CNCF. “And we are humbled to see the continued momentum in our diverse ecosystem of doers. We look forward to working together to foster and sustain our growing number of projects”

Uniserver, Atos and B1 Systems

One of the new members is Uniserver, a Netherlands-based multicloud provider. Most of Uniserver’s clients are IT service providers. Uniserver uses the CNCF’s technologies to provide them with cloud capacity.

B1 Systems joined the foundation as well. The German organization provides consultancy, training and managed services around cloud-native technology, including Kubernetes. Atos is another fresh face, a well-known cloud provider in the Benelux.

As mentioned before, the CNCF shared the news at KubeCon EU 2022. Techzine is on location in Valencia, Spain. Check out this page for an overview of the most important announcements.
