Bitrock & CNCF

We are thrilled to announce that Bitrock has recently joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), vendor-neutral home for many of the fastest-growing projects on GitHub (including Kubernetes and Prometheus) that fosters the collaboration between the industry’s top developers, end users, and vendors.

Kubernetes and other CNCF projects have quickly gained adoption and diverse community support in recent years, becoming some of the most rapidly-moving projects in the open-source history.

The CNCF, part of the non-profit Linux Foundation, creates long-term ecosystems and fosters a community around a collection of high-quality projects that orchestrate containers as part of microservice architectures.

Cloud Native

Organizations can use cloud native technologies to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments including public, private, and hybrid clouds. Containers, service meshes, microservices, immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs exemplify this approach.

These techniques enable resilient, manageable, and observable loosely-coupled systems. They allow developers to make high-impact changes frequently and predictably with minimal effort when combined with robust automation.

The CNCF aims to accelerate adoption of this paradigm by cultivating and maintaining an ecosystem of open source, vendor-neutral initiatives that democratize cutting-edge patterns and make them available to everybody.

Bitrock’s New Membership

Bitrock has recently joined the CNCF community with a Silver Membership: a community that includes the world’s major public cloud and enterprise software firms as well as innovative startups. 

The choice to join this community was based on Bitrock Team's intention to build and influence the cloud native ecosystem alongside industry peers.

By providing governance, thought leadership, and engineering resources to shape and influence the development of the cloud-native ecosystem, Bitrock helps CNCF achieve its mission of making cloud-native computing ubiquitous.

Bitrock also upholds the community's key values as a member - find out more by accessing the CNCF charter:

  • Fast is better than slow 
  • Open 
  • Fair
  • Strong technical identity
  • Clear boundaries 
  • Scalable 
  • Platform agnostic

As a result of this new membership, Bitrock will be able to demonstrate thought leadership in the cloud native space, provide a first-class experience with Kubernetes and other CNCF projects in collaboration with the CNCF and its community, and design and maintain the technologies that are at the forefront of the industry.

HashiCorp and Bitrock sign Partnership

HashiCorp and Bitrock sign Partnership to boost IT Infrastructure Innovation

The product suite of the American leader combined with the expertise of the Italian system integrator are now at the service of companies

Bitrock, Italian system integrator specialized in delivering innovation and evolutionary architecture to companies, has signed a high-value strategic partnership with HashiCorp, a market leader in multi-cloud infrastructure automation and member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

HashiCorp is well-known in the IT infrastructure environment; their open source tools Terraform, Vault, Nomad and Consul are downloaded tens of millions of times each year and enable organizations to accelerate their digital transformation, as well as adopt a common cloud operating model for HashiCorp’s portfolio of multi-cloud infrastructure automation products for infrastructure, security, networking, and application automation.

As companies scale and increase in complexity, enterprise versions of these products enhance the open-source tools with features that promote collaboration, operations, governance, and multi-data center functionality. They must also rely on a trusted partner that is able to guide them through the architectural design phase and who can grant enterprise-grade assistance when it comes to application development, delivery and maintenance.

Due to the highly technical nature of the HashiCorp portfolio, being a HashiCorp partner means that above all, the Bitrock DevOps Team has the expertise and know-how required to manage the complexity of large infrastructures. Composed of highly-skilled professionals who can already count on several “Associate” Certifications and attended the first Vault Bootcamp in Europe - Bitrock are proudly one of the most certified HashiCorp partner in Italy. The partnership with HashiCorp represents not only the result of Bitrock’s investments in the DevOps area, but also the start of a new journey that will allow large Italian companies to rely on more agile, flexible and secure infrastructure. Especially when it comes to the provisioning, protection and management of services and applications across private, hybrid and public cloud architectures.

We are very proud of this new partnership, which not only rewards the hard work of our DevOps Team, but also allows us to offer Italian and European companies the best tools to evolve their infrastructure and digital services” – says Leo Pillon, Bitrock CEO.

With its dedication in delivering reliable innovation through the design and development of business-driven IT solutions, Bitrock is an ideal partner for HashiCorp in Italy. We look forward to working closely with the Bitrock team to jointly enable organizations across the country to benefit from a cloud operating model. With Bitrock’s expertise around DevOps, we are confident in the results we can jointly deliver to organizations leveraging our suite of products” – says Michelle Graff, Global Partner Chief for HashiCorp.
