What is CNCF architecture?
Cloud Native Computing Foundation

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is an open source software foundation that promotes the adoption of cloud-native computing.CNCF projects are the foundation of cloud native computing

As part of the Linux Foundation, we provide support, oversight and direction for fast-growing, cloud native projects, including Kubernetes, Envoy, and Prometheus.The CNCF will strive to adhere to the following principles: (a) Fast is better than slow. The foundation enables projects to progress at high velocity to support aggressive adoption by users. (b) Open. The foundation is open and accessible, and operates independently of specific partisan interests.

What is CNCF in devops : The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is a Linux Foundation project that was started in 2015 to help advance container technology and align the tech industry around its evolution.

How many CNCF projects are there

Today we are the powerhouse for visionary projects and people, hosting 173 projects, driven by more than 220,000 contributors representing 190 countries, and there are no signs of this momentum slowing down.

Is Prometheus a CNCF project : Prometheus was only the second CNCF project to graduate, after Kubernetes.

Grafana Labs joined CNCF as a silver member in 2017 and has been a prolific contributor to CNCF projects, most prominently Prometheus and Cortex, but also Thanos, Jaeger, and OpenTelemetry.

Prometheus is one of the highest velocity CNCF projects, with broad adoption across the IT industry globally, so it's no wonder that the Prometheus Certified Associate (PCA) has become one of our most popular certifications.

Is Istio a CNCF project

Istio was accepted to CNCF on September 30, 2022 at the Incubating maturity level and then moved to the Graduated maturity level on July 12, 2023.
