Cloud Native Computing Foundation Reaches Over 100 Certified Kubernetes Vendors

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA -- The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, today announced that it has surpassed 100 vendors with Certified Kubernetes products as part of the Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program. A certified vendor is an organization that provides a Kubernetes distribution, hosted platform, or installer.

CNCF runs the Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program to ensure that every vendor's version of Kubernetes, or open source community version, remains conformant and supports the required APIs so users can rely on a seamless, stable experience. The program was created two years ago with 32 founding vendors. To become certified, vendors use an automated test suite to demonstrate conformance, which CNCF reviews and certifies via a public process.

"Certification is essential because it provides consistency across different commercial and open source implementations of Kubernetes," said Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. "Reaching this milestone of 100 vendors is indicative of the ubiquitous adoption of Kubernetes across cloud and enterprise software companies ranging from startups to the biggest technology vendors in the world."

To remain certified, vendors provide the latest version of Kubernetes at least yearly, ensuring that users have access to the latest features the community has worked hard to deliver. Any vendor is invited and encouraged to run the conformance test suite and submit for review and certification by CNCF. End users should make sure their vendor partners certify their Kubernetes offering and can confirm that certification using the same open source test suite.
