    The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) today announced that Apple has joined the group as a Platinum member, and Senior Engineering Manager Tom Doron has joined the CNCF Governing Board.

    The CNCF sustains and integrates open source monitoring and deployment systems like Kubernetes and Prometheus. Cloud Native Computing Foundation CTO Chris Aniszczyk said the foundation is "thrilled" to have Apple's support.

    87 other companies are already members of the CNCF, including Spotify, Atlassian, eBay, Intuit, Reddit, Shopify, Squarespace, Walmart, and more.

    The CNCF hosts monthly meetings with these companies to advise the Governing Board and Technical Oversight Committee on "key challenges, emerging use cases, and areas of opportunity and new growth for cloud native technologies."

    This is great! Now, can we please get more than 5GB of storage for free? I know Apple’s pricing for iCloud storage is not too bad but I feel we should at least get 15GB of free storage per iCloud account.

    It's always good to keep your finger in any pie that might be of interest, and Apple certainly has the resources to get involved.

    I don’t want to hi-jack this thread with what I happen to think is a tangential topic. But why do you “feel” Apple should do this? Generally speaking, why is “free” storage a model that works in the longer term for the (average/general) user? To be clear, I am not really arguing the amount. It could be 1GB or 5GB or 100GB—I imagine there is a cost Apple has to cover for the service in some way or another. Either by indirect charge to a typical user (eg, extra $100 on every new phone to cover such storage over several years) or the sale of meta data or advertisements. I’m one of those that happens to think the better way is just to charge for it, every month or some such. I feel that way about steaming music and magazines, too. I don’t happen to feel that way about (at least some) application purchases. Those I prefer to be one-time buys.

    But I would not want ads embedded in any of these things, nor do I want my preferences and personal data sold. Nor do I want an initial inflated cost (as I might never sign up for News+). But I grok that “free” generally isn’t.

    "Please note that you must also be a Member of the LF to be eligible to participate as a member of CNCF"

    So does this mean Apple is now a member of the Linux Foundation?!
