The Cloud Native Computing Foundation releases results of their Kubernetes Software Conformance Certification program.

T​he Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has announced availability of the Kubernetes Software Conformance Certification program, which ensures certified products deliver consistency and portability, and that XX Certified Kubernetes Distributions and Platforms are now available.

Over the last three years, Kubernetes has been adopted by a vibrant, diverse community of providers. As part of the new program, vendors use an automated test suite to demonstrate their conformance and CNCF certifies their submission.

Products that passed the Certified Kubernetes conformance program:

  • Alibaba Cloud, Alibaba Cloud Kubernetes

  • Apprenda, Kismatic Enterprise Toolkit (KET)

  • Appscode, Pharmer

  • Caicloud, Compass

  • Canonical, Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes

  • CoreOS, Tectonic, bootkube

  • Docker, Docker Enterprise Edition

  • Google, Google Container Engine and Google Compute Engine

  • Heptio, AWS-Quickstart

  • Huawei, Huawei Cloud Container Engine

  • IBM, IBM Container Service and IBM Private Cloud

  • Loodse, Kubermatic Container Engine

  • Mesosphere, Kubernetes on DC/OS

A Certified Kubernetes product guarantees that the complete Kubernetes API functions as specified, so users can rely on a seamless, stable experience. Certified Kubernetes implementations are permitted to use the new Certified Kubernetes logo and also are allowed to use the Kubernetes mark in combination with their product name (e.g., XYZ Kubernetes Service). Development of the certification program involved close collaboration between CNCF and the rest of the Kubernetes community, especially the Testing and Architecture Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
