CA Technologies has joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which sustains and integrates open source technologies such as Kubernetes and Prometheus. The vendor also said it is expanding its contributions to both the Kubernetes and the Prometheus CNCF projects.
“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 of 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.”
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 Foundation.
The CA Accelerator program, which incubates new business ideas and organic innovation investments, has supported the development and growth initiatives such as Yipee.io, which enables visualized modeling and construction of containerized microservice-based applications in an orchestration agnostic way, including Kubernetes, facilitating Devops collaboration. The program also supports FreshTracks.io, which delivers intelligent, adaptive threshold and anomaly alerting as a solution for developers and operations engineers using Prometheus and Kubernetes.
