The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has started the second part of this year’s survey on the use of cloud, containers and cloud-native methods. The survey is taking place for the ninth time this year and is for the first time divided into two parts.
The questions in the second part are primarily aimed at the use of cloud-native technologies in general and the CNCF projects in particular, after the first part in the spring was devoted to the topics of cloud, container and Kubernetes. The Foundation also asks for opinions on their work.
Trends in the rearview mirror
The organization will publish the results together with the evaluation of the first survey in its Cloud Native Survey Report. The CNCF provides all survey results in its own GitHub repository, which contains the past results since March 2016.
A look back shows, among other things, a significant growth in the use of containers in productive environments from 69 percent in 2016 to 92 percent in 2020. Last year, the Foundation presented the results at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon. At that time, 1,324 people took part in the survey. Less than a third of them use serverless technologies productively, and service meshes only played a role in a good quarter of those surveyed. 83 percent were already using Kubernetes in productive use in 2020.
the ongoing survey takes place via Survey Monkey; The CNCF is giving away ten online tickets to the hybrid KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2021 among those who take part by September 30th. Further details are available dem Blog der Cloud Native Computing Foundation remove.
