The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has announced Intuit as the winner of the top end user award. Thanks to our contributions to the cloud native community, Intuit is being recognized for how we leverage cloud native technologies in production, including CNCF projects like Kubernetes, Istio, Prometheus, Fluentd, Jaeger, and Open Policy Agent to build a modern developer platform that provides continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous operations to accelerate developer productivity.
As a part of our journey to the cloud and mobile, we continue to modernize all aspects of our technology, including our platform, tools and processes and continue to advance the way we leverage cloud native technologies. This includes how we create, deploy, run, and monitor applications and services, at scale. In January 2018, we acquired Applatix, a talented team with deep system and infrastructure knowledge and expertise in building scalable production systems with containers and Kubernetes in both the public and private cloud environments. As a part of this acquisition, we also inherited their flagship open source tool, Argoproj, a set of Kubernetes native projects.
In the past year alone, Intuit has operationalized more than a hundred Kubernetes clusters that run more than 500 services in production and pre-production across multiple business units. As a part of the deployment, Intuit solved many common issues for teams deploying Kubernetes and related technologies, and shared their solutions to the larger Kubernetes community in order to increase developer productivity.
We continue to be actively involved in the cloud native community, announcing our partnership to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation in January 2018 as an End-User Silver member and serving as a founding member of the GraphQL Foundation since March 2019. Intuit is an active member of the CNCF End User Community, which meets regularly to share adoption best practices and feedback on project roadmaps and future projects for CNCF technical leaders to consider.
“It is such an honor to receive the CNCF End User Award, recognizing our commitment and contributions to the cloud native community,” said Jeff Brewer, Vice President, Chief Architect of the Small Business and Self Employed Group at Intuit. “We’ve undergone several transformations as a company, from the desktop to the web to the cloud and now to AI and ML, and each of these transformations require us to move faster with increased speed of innovation. Through Kubernetes and other cloud native tools, we are able to deploy code faster than we ever have been able to. I’m excited to see how these tools help us to not only better serve our developer community, but also our customers overall as we work to power their prosperity.”
