Thank you, everyone, for taking the time today to consider sponsoring Cortex as a CNCF sandbox project.
After listening to the discussions today, I have a couple of points to make while you are considering your sponsorship:
1. Cortex solves problems in the Kubernetes ecosystem in ways that are not directly addressed by Prometheus. Very large Kubernetes users have very large monitoring problems that, in many cases, are best addressed by a horizontally scalable and multitenant metrics system like Cortex. We are solving users problems today, at scale, within Kubernetes.
2. The larger and more popular CNCF projects, like Kubernetes and Prometheus, are lacking sandbox spaces of their own. Re-reading the goals from the CFCF sandbox guidelines, it seems that the sandbox was designed for just this kind of project. Specifically, the Cortex community is looking for the following from being in the Sandbox:
Given the conversation today about the number of projects that are coming to the CNCF, it will be a challenge to select those that support the mission of the CNCF. We understand that admission to the sandbox does not guarantee promotion, but without the help of the sandbox solving these problems for Kubernetes users will be a bigger challenge.
Thanks again for your time and consideration.
