Linux Foundation Launches New Cloud Native Computing Project


New group will support collaboration in the cloud and container space

The Linux Foundation has announced the launch of a new nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing “the state of the art for building cloud native applications and services.” The new Cloud Native Computing Foundation will “… create and drive the adoption of a new set of common container technologies driven and informed by technical merit and end user value and inspired by Internet-scale computing.”

Founding members include a number of leading Internet companies, such as AT&T, Cisco, CoreOS, Docker, eBay, Google, IBM, Intel, Red Hat, Twitter, VMware, and others. The goal of the group is to define APIs and standards that will lead to better and more open technology for containers and cloud computing.

According to Linux Foundation executive director Jim Zemlin, “The Cloud Native Computing Foundation will help facilitate collaboration among developers and operators on common technologies for deploying cloud-native applications and services. By bringing together the open source community's very best talent and code in a neutral and collaborative forum, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation aims to advance the state of the art of application development at Internet scale.”
