Since the inception of Prometheus, we have been looking for a sustainable governance model for the project that is independent of any single company. Recently, we have been in discussions with the newly formed Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which is backed by Google, CoreOS, Docker, Weaveworks, Mesosphere, and other leading infrastructure companies.
Today, we are excited to announce that the CNCF's Technical Oversight Committee voted unanimously to accept Prometheus as a second hosted project after Kubernetes! You can find more information about these plans in the official press release by the CNCF.
By joining the CNCF, we hope to establish a clear and sustainable project governance model, as well as benefit from the resources, infrastructure, and advice that the independent foundation provides to its members.
We think that the CNCF and Prometheus are an ideal thematic match, as both focus on bringing about a modern vision of the cloud.
In the following months, we will be working with the CNCF on finalizing the project governance structure. We will report back when there are more details to announce.
