Cloud Native Landscape
- Cloud Native Landscape
The CNCF Cloud Native Landscape Project is intended as a map through the previously uncharted terrain of cloud native technologies. This attempts to categorize most of the projects and product offerings in the cloud native space. There are many routes to deploying a cloud native application, with CNCF Projects representing a particularly well-traveled path. It has been built in collaboration with Redpoint Ventures and Amplify Partners.
The Cloud Native Trail Map provides an overview for enterprises starting their cloud native journey.
Please see landscape.cncf.io.
- Projects with at least 250 GitHub stars that clearly fit in an existing category are generally included. Put the project in the single category where it best fits.
- We generally will only list a company's product in one box, to represent its major or best known offering. We occasionally make exceptions for large companies.
- We are unlikely to create a new category for products/projects as we'd rather find the best home with the current options.
- We are generally not including commercial versions of open source software. The exception is that we are showing all Certified Kubernetes and non-Certified Kubernetes implementations.
- Closed source products need to link to a clear description of your product; no stealth mode companies.
- Your project or company needs a logo and the logo needs to include the name.
If you think your company or project should be included, please open a pull request to add it to landscape.yml. For the logo, you can either upload an SVG to the
hosted_logos directory or put a URL as the value, and it will be fetched.
Netlify will generate a staging server for you to preview your updates. Please check that the logo and information appears correctly and then add
LGTM to the pull request confirming your review and requesting a merge.
The following rules will produce the most readable and attractive logos:
- We require SVGs, as they are smaller, display correctly at any scale, and work on all modern browsers. If you only have the logo in another vector format (like AI or EPS), please open an issue and we'll convert it to an SVG for you, or you can often do it yourself at https://cloudconvert.com/. Note that you may need to zip your file to attach it to a GitHub issue. Please note that we require pure SVGs and will reject SVGs that contain embedded PNGs, since they have the same problems of being bigger and not scaling seamlessly.
- When multiple variants exist, use stacked (not horizontal) logos. For example, we use the second column (stacked), not the first (horizontal), of CNCF project logos.
- Don't use reversed logos (i.e., with a non-white, non-transparent background color). If you only have a reversed logo, create an issue with it attached and we'll produce a non-reversed version for you.
- Logos must include the company, product or project name in English. It's fine to also include words from another language. If you don't have a version of your logo with the name in it, please open an issue and we'll create one for you (and please specify the font).
- Match the item name to the English words in the logos. So an Acme Rocket logo that shows "Rocket" should have product name "Rocket", while if the logo shows "Acme Rocket", the product name should be "Acme Rocket". Otherwise, logos looks out of place when you sort alphabetically.
- Google images is often the best way to find a good version of the logo (but ensure it's the up-to-date version). Search for grpc logo filetype:svg but substitute your project or product name for grpc.
- You can either upload an SVG to the
hosted_logosdirectory or put a URL as the value, and it will be fetched.
If the error is with data from Crunchbase you should open an account there and edit the data. If you don't like a project description, edit it in GitHub. If your project isn't showing the license correctly, you may need to paste the unmodified text of the license into a LICENSE file at the root of your project in GitHub, in order for GitHub to serve the license information correctly.
The canonical source for all data is landscape.yml. Once a day, we download data for projects and companies from the following sources:
- Project info from GitHub
- Funding info from Crunchbase
- Market cap data from Yahoo Finance
- CII Best Practices Badge data
Best Practices Badge
As explained at https://bestpractices.coreinfrastructure.org/:
The Linux Foundation (LF) Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) Best Practices badge is a way for Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) projects to show that they follow best practices. Projects can voluntarily self-certify, at no cost, by using this web application to explain how they follow each best practice. The CII Best Practices Badge is inspired by the many badges available to projects on GitHub. Consumers of the badge can quickly assess which FLOSS projects are following best practices and as a result are more likely to produce higher-quality secure software.
The interactive landscape displays the status (or non-existence) of a badge for each open-source project. There's also a feature not available through the filter bar to see all items with and without badges. Note that a passing badge is a requirement for projects to graduate in the CNCF.
We generally remove open source projects that have not had a commit in over 3 months. Note that for projects not hosted on GitHub, we need them to mirror to GitHub to fetch updates, and we try to work with projects when their mirrors are broken. Here is view of projects sorted by last update: https://landscape.cncf.io/grouping=no&license=open-source&sort=latest-commit
We generally remove closed source products when they have not tweeted in over 3 months. This doesn't apply to Chinese companies without Twitter accounts, since Twitter is blocked there. Here is a view of products sorted by last tweet: https://landscape.cncf.io/grouping=no&license=not-open-source&sort=latest-tweet
Items that have been removed can apply to be re-added using the regular New Entries criteria above.
