KubeCon Europe 2024

This event has finished

The Equinix team will be in Paris for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU 2024! Join us at Booth J21 and learn how to maximize performance from your dedicated hardware. We'll have demos by our experts showcasing our API integrations, first-class Kubernetes support, high performance and high availability for network focused workloads, and other DevOps integrations.

Plus, we'll be handing out totes, postcards, and stickers. Ask about how to enter our raffles to win an iPad mini!

The Power of Hardware Contributions

You may be asking yourself “what is Equinix doing at a CNCF event?”. The short answer is we love open source. The longer answer is while Equinix developers have used and contributed to many important open source software projects, one of our biggest and most impactful contributions is not software at all.

With Equinix Metal now in 27 of Equinix’s 71 global metro locations (and 5 more coming soon), our single-tenant cloud business sure has a lot of hardware. Our unique way of supporting open source is providing compute and network infrastructure through our Open Source Partner Program (OSPP). The program started in 2017 with a monthly donation of $25,000, which tripled in 2020. It has continued to evolve, and maintainers of more than 100 open source projects now regularly spin up powerful bare metal servers around the world for free to run their builds, tests, CI/CD, proofs of concept, workshops and much, much more.

Some of the critical projects the program supports are NTP Pool, which uses Equinix Metal server clusters to provide highly accurate time, and, whose underlying CDN runs on our infrastructure, acting as the main distribution system for Linux kernel source code. Alpine Linux and Flatcar Linux, whose build tests require access to the underlying hardware on multiple architectures, use Equinix’s cloud for those purposes.

Any organization, regardless of its core expertise, can find its way to contribute to the open source community and drive innovation!
