OverOps has joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), reinforcing our commitment to support our customers and partners on their cloud native journeys.

We’re excited to announce that OverOps has joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)! CNCF is part of the nonprofit Linux Foundation and is the vendor-neutral home for many of the fastest-growing open source projects, including Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Envoy.

Cloud native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private, and hybrid clouds. Containers, service meshes, microservices, immutable infrastructure and declarative APIs exemplify this approach. The official definition of cloud native is available right here.

“We’re thrilled to welcome OverOps to CNCF,” said Dan Kohn, Executive Director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “As more organizations adopt cloud native technologies, OverOps’ ability to help teams deliver continuously reliable software makes them a great addition to the CNCF community.”

Cloud Native Technology Adoption is Growing Rapidly

A new survey from CNCF gathered insights from close to 1,400 developers, with 78% of respondents indicating they’re using Kubernetes in production, a 20% increase from last year’s findings. This aligns with what we’re seeing at our customers – containers and microservices have long ago crossed the chasm. Organizations are increasing their rate of cloud native technology adoption and enterprises who operate mission-critical applications are playing a big role in this revolution.

Traditional Troubleshooting Methods Are No Longer Sufficient

“As more organizations leverage containers to build modern applications, traditional methods of maintaining software reliability are no longer sufficient,” said Tal Weiss, CTO and co-founder of OverOps. “OverOps for Kubernetes brings much-needed visibility into complex containerized environments and gives organizations confidence in the reliability of their Kubernetes-based apps.”

By analyzing code at runtime, OverOps surfaces issues that are missed by traditional monitoring, logging or code analysis tools, and prioritizes the errors that need to be addressed based on criteria such as when they first appeared, how frequently they occurred and more. The platform then arms developers and DevOps teams with the complete state of the container at the moment a critical issue occurs so they can quickly reproduce and resolve errors before customers are impacted. OverOps provides a better way to handle complexity in both cloud-native and on-premises applications.

Based on the feedback we’re getting from our customers, we added support for attaching the OverOps agent to containerized applications running in Kubernetes clusters. In addition to our SaaS deployment model, we also added support for deploying the OverOps analysis and storage servers within Kuberenetes clusters as part of our hybrid and on-premises architectures.

What’s Next?

As a CNCF member, we’d like to reinforce our commitment to our customers and partners as they go on their individual cloud native journeys. We are in the midst of unprecedented times, requiring us to adjust ourselves to the changing reality – with cloud technologies as the connecting link between people, their families, friends, co-workers and the services they rely on. 

Furthermore, mission-critical applications have become a part of the fabric of our lives, with cloud native technologies and automation leading the way with state-of-the-art standards. This is why we’re excited to join CNCF and continue with our mission to help organizations achieve the move fast/fix fast vision – helping them continuously deliver reliable applications.
