Why The CDF Launch From Linux Foundation Is Important For the DevOps And Cloud Native Ecosystem


Earlier this month, the Linux Foundation announced the formation of Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) – a new foundation that joins the likes of Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and Open Container Initiative (OCI).

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) has become an essential building block of modern application lifecycle management. This technique allows business to increase the velocity of delivering software to users. Through CI/CD, what was once confined to large, web-scale companies became available to early-stage startups and enterprises.

With the launch of CDF, Linux Foundation has taken the first step in bringing the most popular CI/CD tools under the same roof. This would enable key contributors such as CloudBees, Netflix, Google, and other members to collaborate rather than duplicating the efforts. The foundation would encourage members to contribute to critical areas of software delivery with an increased focus. This immensely helps the ecosystem in adopting the best of the breed tools and the best practices of implementing CI/CD pipelines.
