Prometheus graduates within Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Cloud Native Computing Foundation has announced that the open-source project Prometheus has graduated. This is second product after Kubernetes to graduate from Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

Prometheus is Widely-adopted open source monitoring and alerting tool. It is used by cloud-native leaders and contributors like DigitalOcean, Red Hat, SUSE, ShuttleCloud, Datawire, DigitalOcean, Weaveworks, ShowMax, iAdvize, and Uber, among others.

The basic requirement for projects to graduate from CNCF is that the project must demonstrate thriving adoption, a documented, structured governance process, and a strong commitment to community sustainability and inclusivity. It means that CNCF has confidence in the Prometheus code and its feature velocity (the rate at which features are delivered), product maturity and stability, and governance and community processes. Prometheus also integrates Kubernetes and supports service discovery and monitoring of dynamically scheduled services.

Soundcloud started Prometheus project in 2012 and later contributed to CNCF in May 2016. The project has had 30 official releases including both major and minor releases since entering CNCF’s incubation level.

The CNCF announcement said, Prometheus now has nearly 20 active maintainers, more than 1,000 contributors and more than 13,000 commits from its growing user base, which includes ShuttleCloud, Datawire, DigitalOcean, Weaveworks, ShowMax, iAdvize, and Uber, among others. Prometheus also integrates with CNCF’s first-hosted project, Kubernetes, to support service discovery and monitoring of dynamically scheduled services.

Co-founder of the Prometheus project, Julius Volz, said “Since becoming part of CNCF, Prometheus has become an essential piece in modern infrastructure stacks and helped shape the way organizations monitor critical applications. We are incredibly proud to have Prometheus graduate, and we look forward to working with CNCF to sustain and grow our community.”

According to the announcement, "To officially graduate from incubating status, the project also adopted the CNCF Code of Conduct, executed an independent security audit and defined its own governance structure to grow the community. Additionally, Prometheus also had to earn (and maintain) a Core Infrastructure Initiative Best Practices Badge. Completed on June 23, 2017, the CII badge shows an ongoing commitment to code quality and security best practices."

SUSE CTO, Thomas Di Giacomo, said, “As a provider of open source solutions to enterprise customers, SUSE uses Prometheus to deliver advanced monitoring capabilities in a variety of offerings. It’s a great complement to Cloud Native Computing Foundation projects like Kubernetes and to other distributed systems. Today’s graduation is a well-deserved recognition of the technology, its community maturity, and the value Prometheus brings to a wide range of use cases.”

Cloud native computing uses an open source software stack to deploy applications as microservices. It packages each part into its own container, and dynamically orchestrates those containers to optimize resource utilization. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) also hosts critical components of cloud native software stacks, including Kubernetes and Prometheus.
