As any of the 200+ people who have already forked Datica’s open source compliance policies can attest, we’ve always been a big believer in the value and spirit of open source. Last year our open source commitment evolved to include Open Source Connectors to help solve the problem of healthcare data integration. Most recently, the open source project Kubernetes® became the fundamental technical management layer for Datica. To take this commitment even further, we’re thrilled to announce we’ve become one of the newest silver members of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), home of Kubernetes.
Since 2015, Kubernetes has become the industry standard for container management, lending the best tools for workload deployment on public clouds. In addition to being cross-cloud compatible and open source, the CNCF Kubernetes project and community have grown at a tremendous pace. In fact, the CNCF announced Datica as one of it’s 19 newest members last week, bringing the membership level to 236 companies. What really makes Kubernetes a viable option is not the core project itself, but the community of tools and add-ons that surround it.
We’re excited for what the future holds in this open-source-fueled era of rapid development and are particular excited to step into this future in partnership with the CNCF to collaborate with other Kubernetes developers who are trying to build secure and compliant products.
