VEXXHOST is a firm believer in continuous improvement as well as investing in the open source community. As such, there are a handful of exciting announcements surrounding the company’s participation with prominent and significant foundations, in addition to a substantial update on the product offering.
Firstly, VEXXHOST is proud to be a Sponsor of Kubecon North America 2018. Events like Kubecon give open source communities access to leading experts and contributors in the tech arena, an opportunity that goes hand in hand with the community’s overarching goal of distributing and sharing knowledge for the reason of technological advancement. You can find VEXXHOST in booth number S73.
VEXXHOST was also recently given the opportunity to become Silver members of both The Linux Foundation and their subsidiary, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). These incredible foundations continue to play integral roles within the open source community and VEXXHOST is honoured to join and contribute to this journey.
Which leads to VEXXHOST’s next exciting announcement. VEXXHOST’s Kubernetes-as-a-service offering which runs on OpenStack’s Magnum container service has received certification by the CNCF.
“To be able to offer Certified Kubernetes is a significant achievement and means that VEXXHOST has met the high standards and required qualifications of the CNCF. We’re proud to be able to offer expertise and services to our clients that are backed by organizations of their quality.” Says VEXXHOST CEO, Mohammed Naser.
The purpose of this certification is to aid businesses when it comes to selecting the right vendor for their specific operational and production needs. When locating a service provider, it can be easy for companies to feel overwhelmed with information without knowing what it means, or even feel unsure as to what the full extent of their needs are. However, service providers who are awarded the Certified Kubernetes classification are deemed by the CNFC to not only be current and skilled in the deployment of Kubernetes-as-a-service, but also to be trustworthy partners capable of delivering support tailored to each companies needs.
All in all, VEXXHOST is thrilled to be supporting such substantial open source community organizations like The Linux Foundation, the CNCF, and events like Kubecon. VEXXHOST is also excited to be able to offer its knowledge of Kubernetes deployments to its clients along with the security of knowing they are working with a Certified Kubernetes partner.
