Company Reinforces Commitment to Open Source and Container Technology
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon
(Dec. 6-8, Austin, TX) that it has joined the Cloud
Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Founded in 2015, CNCF sustains
and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus.
Every company needs to be a modern software factory to speed IT
productivity and in turn, increase profitability. Adopting cloud native
technologies and practices helps businesses propel software development
and IT to move faster, to keep up with competitors, and deliver better
services to customers. As container-based virtualization technology and
deployments make their way into the enterprise, open container
orchestration platforms like Kubernetes look to be a dominant
infrastructure component for next-generation microservice-based cloud
applications and services.
"The modern software factory requires container-centric capabilities
such as advanced visual design and intelligent alerting technologies to
fully realize the potential of Kubernetes-powered microservices," states
Howard Abrams, senior vice president of Incubation at CA Technologies.
"CNCF membership gives us an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment
to advance CNCF projects, shape the market, and further contribute to
the direction of essential open source communities."
Participating in CNCF is the latest example of CA's commitment to both
open standards and open source. CA is expanding its contributions to
both the Kubernetes and the Prometheus CNCF projects. CA also holds
leadership roles in other open source consortia, such as the Eclipse
Foundation, where it also serves on the Board of Directors. CA is also a
member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, OpenAPI and the Open Mainframe
CA is a significant force in creating synergies between
internationally-recognized open standards organizations and innovative
open source communities. Its re-election to the OASIS Board of Directors
has enabled CA to contribute to the development of the newly-launched
OASIS Open Projects initiative.
The CA Accelerator program, which incubates new business ideas and
organic innovation investments, has supported the development and growth
Yipee.io: which enables visualized modeling and construction of
containerized microservice-based applications in an orchestration
agnostic way, including Kubernetes, facilitating Devops collaboration.
FreshTracks.io: which delivers intelligent, adaptive threshold and
anomaly alerting as a modern, Devops-friendly solution for developers
and operations engineers using Prometheus and Kubernetes.
"CNCF is thrilled to welcome CA Technologies as a member and we look
forward to their contributions to this growing community," said Dan
Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. "Our
annual event gathers all CNCF projects and leading technologists from
open source cloud native communities together to further the advancement
of cloud native computing."
Bob Cotton of FreshTracks.io will speak during the Prometheus Salon with
Prometheus contributors, Frederic Branczyk and Tom Wilkie.
