Microsoft Joins Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Launches New Container Service
Microsoft has joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), a San Francisco-based organisation aiming at sustaining containers and microservices architectures, as a platinum member.
The Redmond giant joins 14 other companies in the platinum membership category, including Docker, Google – who originally designed Kubernetes before donating it to the CNCF – and IBM.
The foundation’s mission statement is to “create and drive the adoption of a new computing paradigm that is optimised for modern distributed systems environments capable of scaling to tens of thousands of self-healing multi-tenant nodes.”
