JD.com Improving Cloud Computing Technologies December 6, 2018

Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) specializes in open source software to improve cloud computing possibilities. At the KubeCon and CloudNativeCon conference held in November this year, they awarded JD.com (China’s top eCommerce company), also known by many as Jingdong Mall;  the “Top End User Award”v. As Jingdong heavily uses CNCF products and has worked closely with the foundation to improve those products, this close partnership exemplified how two companies can create something greater than one alone.

 

With over a trillion images in their product database, providing customers with a top quality experience requires vast amounts of processing power at ever greater speeds. Consequently, Jingdong has partnered with CNCF to use Kubernetes, and currently they have one of the largest Kubernetes clusters worldwide.

 

This makes sense as they are one of the largest retailers in the world. In order to stay ahead of competition and to continuously improve a customer experience, Jingdong perpetually seeks new technology advancements, especially ones that contribute to big data and AI technologies. One way they have achieved this, has been their close partnership with CNCF, and in April, they became a platinum end user.

 

This new designation was in recognition of all the work that Jingdong has done in partnership with CNCF. Jingdong has worked on projects such as Vitess, Prometheus, and Kubernetes as well as other projects, in an effort to improve the code. As a customer, Jingdong has benefited directly from working on these projects, especially the Vitess cluster management project. Vitess allows Jingdong to maintain resource flexibility while reducing maintenance and operation costs, which is good for the company’s bottom line. Go Here for related Information.

 

These mutual beneficial collaborations made Jingdong the obvious choice for the “Top End User Award”. And in the ever changing IT industry, Jingdong Mall and CNCF will continue this mutually beneficial partnership and continue to innovate and improve their technology.
