Presentation at the OpenStack Summit in Austin, Texas on April 28, 2016.
The technology industry has been abuzz about cloud workload containerization since the open source Docker project became a phenomenon in early 2014.
Meanwhile, an OpenStack Containers Team was formed and the Magnum project launched to provide users with a convenient Containers-as-a-Service solution for OpenStack environments.
As the potential of both technologies emerged, many wanted to see shared governance over the baseline container specification and runtime technology to ensure an open cloud ecosystem.
This past December, two new groups were launched with a goal of creating open, industry standards. The first called the Open Container Initiative (http://www.opencontainers.org), and the second called the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (http://cncf.io)
