Today Univa joins Google, IBM, and other world-class companies founding members of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The new CNCF organization will accelerate the development of cloud native applications and services by advancing a technology stack for data center containerization and microservices.
Univa is excited to participate as a founding member of the CNCF,” said Gary Tyreman, CEO of Univa Corporation. “Enterprises want to capture the power and benefits of containerization and we’re proud to be among the industry pioneers who are stepping up to the challenge. We look forward to sharing our expertise in optimizing diverse data center workloads gained from our experience with hundreds of different enterprise environments.”
Univa has also formally joined the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program as an Authorized Technology Partner with its recent integration between the Univa solutions suite and Google Cloud Platform. According to the company, membership in the new foundation as well as in the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program are the latest pillars of Univa’s continued expansion into containerization and microservices.
Univa’s suite includes the world’s most trusted workload optimization solution enabling organizations to manage and optimize distributed applications, containers, data center services, legacy applications, and Big Data frameworks in a single, dynamically shared set of resources. It is the most widely deployed workload optimization solution used today in more than 10,000 data centers across thousands of applications and use cases.

Today’s news comes on the heels of a major update to Univa’s Grid Engine software. Last week, Univa announced its Grid Engine 8.3.0 software that includes the first-ever preemption feature for Big Data applications, which allows customers to pause workloads to run higher priority applications.
