Open Container Initiative Continues Momentum with New Members
March 19, 2018

The Open Container Initiative (OCI), an open source community for creating open industry standards around containers, announced that 99Cloud, Kontena and OpenStack Foundation have joined the Open Container Initiative at the Silver level.

As the application container market is poised to reach $2.7 billion by 2020, increased interoperability and open standards for containers have become vital.

"As development and container adoption continues to skyrocket, the ecosystem's health depends on living industry specifications to assure the interoperability of container implementations," said Chris Aniszczyk, Executive Director of the OCI. "99Cloud, Kontena and OpenStack Foundation are welcome additions to OCI – we look forward to their help in stabilizing and evolving our container runtime and image specifications with the OCI collaborative community."

To harness this momentum, the OCI Technical Oversight Board (TOB) just elected five new board members to each serve a two-year term to push the technical project forward: Taylor Brown (Microsoft), Stephen Day (Docker), Phil Estes (IBM), Jon Johnson (Google) and Mrunal Patel (Red Hat).

These new members join the following existing members: Vincent Batts (Red Hat), Michael Crosby (Docker), Vishnu Kannan (Google) and Greg Kroah-Hartman (Linux Foundation). The TOB also voted to elect Michael Crosby (Docker) as the new Chair. This new TOB lineup is responsible for adding, removing or reorganizing OCI projects.

In the shift to cloud native, many organizations have adopted a configuration-as-code approach. This helps drive up application deployment velocity by letting developers and DevOps teams reconfigure their deployments as their needs arise. Other organizations, particularly the more regulated ones, still have security people owning these tools, but that creates increased pressure on the security organization to keep up. How much are organizations investing in this process, and how much is it getting them? ...
