Re: Cloud Native Credits Program

Richard Hartmann

Dear all,

I really wanted to make that TOC call when I saw this on the agenda,
but sadly CVE-2021-39226 got into the way.

With my project hats on, this initiative is great to see. In
particular a wide support from ~all the cloud providers would be
extremely useful. Testing Prometheus integrations with various cloud
APIs is often front-loaded with finding a way to get an account at
said providers. While Chris A & CNCF Servicedesk keep valiantly trying
to find contacts, it doesn't always work out.

As the cloud providers will also benefit from increased testing, I
would ask you to emphasize this aspect for cloud providers *accepting*
those credits and enabling self-serve: They benefit directly from the
free work by the projects; they just need to enable us to do the work.
Anyone reading this should encourage their vendor and/or employers to

Hello Everyone,

As part of the CNCF evolving and changing, we're introducing a Cloud Native Credits program. In an effort to provide our projects with public, self-service, and automated access to the Cloud Infrastructure, CNCF has created the Cloud Credits program. We believe this program is crucial for every project to incubate, grow, and succeed. This would be impossible without sponsors donating cloud credits to showcase direct support of our growing number of incubating and graduated CNCF projects.

I'll be announcing this next week at KubeCon, but I wanted to follow up on today's TOC meeting with the Cloud Credits Two Pager. Please take a look and feel free to share thoughts. Keep in mind, everything is an iteration!

Best wishes,
