Knative becomes a CNCF project – TechCrunch

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is residence to lots of crucial fashionable open-source tasks, together with Kubernetes. Today, the CNCF’s Technical Oversight Committee introduced that it has now additionally accepted Knative as a CNCF incubating project.

“Knative is a powerful technology that is well integrated with the cloud native ecosystem, making it easier to run serverless containers on Kubernetes,” mentioned CNCF CTO Chris Aniszczyk. “We think the project will benefit greatly from an open governance model under the foundation, allowing it to grow even more by reaching new contributors and end users. We look forward to working with the Knative community and welcome the team’s contribution.”

Knative (pronounced kay-nay-tiv) was created by Google in 2018, however since then, a variety of different business heavyweights together with IBM, Red Hat, VMWare, TriggerMesh and SAP additionally labored on it. The thought behind the project is to make it simpler for its customers to construct, deploy and handle serverless and event-driven functions on high of Kubernetes. That’s very a lot the place a lot of enterprises are at present going, too,  after they develop new functions or modernize present ones as a part of their digital transformation tasks. And regardless of Knative nonetheless being a very younger project, Bloomberg, Alibaba Cloud, Bloomberg, IBM and VMware already use it in manufacturing, whereas Google uses Knative to energy Google Cloud’s serverless computing platform.

The project hit its version 1.0 milestone final November and shortly after, Google announced that it had submitted the project to the CNCF for consideration. Now that this course of is full, Google will donate the Knative trademark, IP and code to the CNCF.

“Following the recent achievement of reaching stability with Knative 1.0, we believe that donating the project to a vendor-neutral home is the next step in enabling the project to grow and the community to govern itself,” Said, Carlos Santana, Knative Steering Committee and DOCS-UX Lead. “We believe that the CNCF is that vendor-neutral foundation and hope that Knative’s acceptance will encourage additional companies to adopt, contribute to, and evangelize the project. It will also bring the Knative community closer to other cloud native projects in the ecosystem – including all the projects it builds on – helping to establish a virtuous cycle of feedback and features.”
