Cloud Native Computing Foundation's FluxCD Project Gains New Corporate Support

As the support landscape for FluxCD evolves and expands, new companies and end users step up to ensure long-term project sustainability

PARIS, March 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe -- The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, today shared that Graduated project FluxCD is receiving significant support from new dedicated companies committed to the ongoing maintenance and development of Flux GitOps tools and providing continuous delivery for applications and platforms. With additional support from CNCF, the project has now successfully transitioned to a stronger and broader community.

Companies affirming their support for Flux among their offerings include Aenix, Aviator, Microsoft Azure, ControlPlane, Edgecell, Fairwinds, Giant Swarm, Gimlet, GitLab, Nearform, Opsmx, Opsworks, OSO, Teracloud, and TNG. Additional long-time Flux adopters who have added themselves to the public list recently include Cisco and German retailer Tchibo alongside new use cases from organizations such as the Sylva project.

GitLab announced its continued support for Flux and working with partners in a recent blog post, noting "We are confident in the future of Flux. Flux is a mature Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) project with a large and dedicated user base. We believe that our continued support and integration with Flux serves our users the best." In early 2023, GitLab integrated Flux with its agent for Kubernetes offering as the recommended GitOps solution.

FluxCD was developed at Weaveworks which announced that it would cease commercial operations at the start of February. CNCF has worked with many FluxCD stakeholders so that end users and former customers can access long term sustainable development and support.

"I am glad to see the continued support across the open source cloud native community for Flux as well as Weaveworks ensuring projects remain available throughout the community. In the immediate future, CNCF is planning to fund mentorships and security work. We encourage other organizations to get involved as there's never a bad time to contribute to an open source project you depend on. Also, this is a great example of the strength and resilience of our community and we look forward to Flux's continued evolution and growth," said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO, CNCF.

FluxCD ecosystem projects are expanding and enabling more open source capabilities and pathways for contributors to enter the space. With Weaveworks support, key projects have now migrated into the wider community such as the Flux-IaC tools that enable GitOps for infrastructure as code tools working alongside Kubernetes.

CNCF is supporting a special Birds of a Feather session at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe in Paris on Wednesday 20 March at 11:00 CET. This will be an opportunity for FluxCD ecosystem users and maintainers to get together with all parties interested in supporting the project. Ecosystem projects will be presented and an overall plan shared for everyone to get involved in the future of the technology.

As a Graduated project within CNCF, Flux reached General Availability in July 2023 and completed its second security audit with the CNCF last November with no CVEs.

Supporting Quotes:

"We are really happy to observe new big tech shops bringing their support to Flux. It should give everyone the confidence to keep committing and investing. The level of quality and security, and the modularity of Flux have been prime reasons for our decision to use it two years ago to automate the deployment and lifecycle management of network functions. Our Linux Foundation Sylva-based cloud native infrastructure relies on the strength and resilience of the Flux community. Flux's technology and community make it the GitOps framework in our Telco networks." - Philippe Ensarguet, VP Software Engineering, Orange

"Flux is the engine that powers several GitOps experiences on Azure as well as in our customer's environments. We will continue to invest in Flux through upstream contributions for the long-term health and support of the project, and downstream partnerships to help customers" - Lachie Evenson, Principal PDM Manager, Cloud Native Ecosystem, Microsoft
