I cannot sponsor, but as a member of the research community I'd like to wholeheartedly +1 Volcano. 
It enables complex workflows that are more common in the research/HPC space that haven't really been possible to on top of Kubernetes without a lot of hackish workarounds.
It'd be great to see it as a part of the CNCF ecosystem.

Dear TOCs,

Volcano, a Kubernetes based batch system for batch workloads, has followed the new process and got the SIG-Runtime's approval to proceed for Sandbox application a month ago. For now, there're 12 approvers/reviewers from 5 companies/orgs and 75 contributors from 10+ companies/orgs. For the last few weeks, the Volcano project team has been reaching out to many TOCs for sponsorship, but unfortunately, we have got little/no response or not even feedback about the project.

At this point, we don't know what to do next to get sponsors. Please help !

Please take a look at Volcano and let us know if you would kindly be our sponsor. Thank you !!
