IBM applauds Knative’s application to join the Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Knative joins the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, and now is a great time to get involved in this important open source serverless technology.

IBM applauds Knative’s application to join the Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Today, Knative applied to become an incubating project at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Today’s news is a major step in the right direction for the future of Knative.

Knative adds the necessary components that enable Kubernetes users to more quickly deploy and manage their workloads on Kubernetes — but without the need to become Kubernetes experts. Additionally, Knative adds “serverless” runtime semantics, allowing users to reap the benefit of features such as quick load-based scaling and scaling to zero when idle.

By joining the CNCF, the Knative community will find a larger, vibrant community that will help Knative to continue growing and attracting more users and developers. By welcoming Knative, the CNCF adds another important piece to its landscape, that has become the roadmap for customers wanting to understand the current state and direction of cloud computing, container technologies, and the different projects and sub-communities which help make it real.

It’s a win-win.
