SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 11, 2019 – The Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which sustains open source technologies like Kubernetes® and Prometheus™, today announced that Fluentd is its sixth project to graduate, following Kubernetes, Prometheus, Envoy, CoreDNS and containerd. To move from the maturity level of incubation to graduation, projects must demonstrate thriving adoption, a documented, structured governance process, and a strong commitment to community sustainability and inclusivity. Fluentd was created in 2011 by Sadayuki “Sada” Furuhashi, co-founder of Treasure Data, Inc., as an open source data collector for building a Unified Logging Layer, which unifies the data collection and consumption for a better use and understanding of data. In November 2016, Fluentd was accepted as CNCF’s sixth hosted project after Kubernetes, Prometheus and OpenTracing. With more than 900 plugins connecting to its many data sources and data outputs; including Docker, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, etc., Fluentd was the 2016 Bossie Awards winner for the best open source datacenter and cloud software. More than 5,000 data-driven community users rely on Fluentd to differentiate their products and services through a better use and understanding of their log data, including Atlassian, Amazon Web Services, Backplane, Change.org, CyberAgent, DeNa, Drecom, GREE, GungHo, LINE Corp, Nintendo, Microsoft, Slideshare and many others. Fluentd now has 4 active maintainers, over 160 contributors and more than 4,400 commits. It also has 189 official releases, more than 48 Million Docker Hub pulls, 941 plugins available made by the community and over 7500 Github Stars.
