Zerto, an industry leader for IT resilience, has announced its membership of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), an influential organization which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software. In becoming a Silver member, Zerto aims to support the development and success of the cloud native industry through active participation across the Foundation community, events, and projects.
CNCF serves as the vendor-neutral home for many of the fastest-growing open source projects, including Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Envoy. Zerto‚Äôs first engagement with the CNCF community will be its participation in KubeCon and CloudNativeCon Europe 2020 Virtual, CNCF‚Äôs¬†flagship conference.
Zerto‚Äôs CNCF membership follows its¬†recent announcement¬†to extend its enterprise-class VM and cloud IT Resilience Platform to next generation applications. As more enterprises move to a DevOps model, the reliance on microservices – typically running in containers – becomes a starting point. Zerto is focusing on disaster recovery and data protection for¬†containerized applications¬†with industry-leading continuous data protection and journaling technology.
‚ÄúWe are excited to join CNCF as a natural expansion of our community as we extend our enterprise-class VM and cloud¬†IT Resilience Platform¬†to next-generation applications,‚Äù said Deepak Verma, director, product strategy, Zerto. ‚ÄúWith Kubernetes as the de facto container management platform, Zerto‚Äôs first release is a Kubernetes native service for containerized applications, whether running on-premises or in the cloud. Our membership is ideally timed to build broader relationships across the cloud-native community.‚Äù
Priyanka Sharma, General Manager of CNCF commented, ‚ÄúWe‚Äôre thrilled to welcome Zerto as a CNCF member. As more organizations transition to containers and cloud native technologies, the company‚Äôs expertise in disaster recovery and data protection makes them a great addition. We look forward to the teams‚Äô contributions across the CNCF community, events, and projects.‚Äù
