The representative cloud-native technologies including containers, micro-services, micro-service governance, and declarative APIs, etc.

CNCF Landscape

(https://github.com/cncf/landscape) is an important project from CNCF. It aims to provide a resource map for cloud native users, enterprises and developers quickly understand the overall picture of the cloud native system.

The CNCF divides the cloud-native ecosystem horizontally into five layers, and vertically maps out two parts for them which are common to the five horizontal layers. The five horizontally divisions layer are: Application Definition and Development, Orchestration and Governance, Runtime, Supply Assurance, and Cloud Facilities. The two vertically divided parts are: observation and analysis and platform. The integrating of these functions result in a complete cloud platform service product offering with the following panorama the:

Apache ShardingSphere will keep going to expand and improve in the open source and cloud native fields, and builds an organic open source ecosystem!

We are hoping that more supporters of open source and cloud-native communities can join us to move forward together and promote the common growth of the Apache ShardingSphere community and its contributors!

Since Apache ShardingSphere (Incubating) has been open sourced in 2016, it has been constantly improving and developing, and has been recognized by more and more companies and individuals: 8000+ stars have been harvested on Github, and successful cases of nearly 100 companies.
