CloudNativeCon: Dell joins Cloud Native Computing Foundation
#DellTechnologies has become the latest Platinum member to join the #CloudNativeComputingFoundation ( #CNCF ) – a part of the #LinuxFoundation responsible for a number of open source projects that deal with microservice architecture. This type of architecture envisions every application as a collection of loosely coupled services that can be developed and scaled independently, using container orchestration technologies. Dell will get some say on where the projects are heading, in exchange for $370,000 in annual membership fees. The CNCF has also revealed that German Linux specialist #SUSE has joined as a Gold level member, while #HarmonyCloud, #QAware, #Solinea, and #TenxCloud have joined as Silver members. The announcements were made at the CloudNativeCon in Berlin, an event collocated with KubeCon Europe – another open source conference dedicated squarely to Kubernetes.
