Spotify joined the CNCF End User Community in early 2018 while transitioning to cloud native and Kubernetes-based infrastructure. Today, the company is an active user of CNCF projects, including Argo, FluentD, OPA, gRPC, Envoy, and Kubernetes. It now operates more than 150 Kubernetes clusters running over 2,800 services across all its software lifecycle. Spotify also contributes back to almost all of the CNCF projects it uses.

We are thrilled to present them with this award and look forward to the company’s continued contributions across the community.”
