Kubernetes, today's go-to container orchestration system, is hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

Since it was founded in 2014, Kubernetes has grown into one of the highest-velocity projects in the history of open source. The container orchestration system was started at Google and donated to the Linux Foundation as a seed technology for the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. And in the past year, “about 3,000 separate folks made a specific commit, a contribution,” says CNCF Executive Director Dan Kohn. “The total number of folks learning about it is probably in the high thousands or even ten thousand. And it requires an insane level of cooperation and coordination to engage all those people.”
