The Linux Foundation has announced that it will host the Lura Project, which was previously called Kraken. According to the foundation, Lura is a framework for building API gateways. It acts as an aggregator for microservices and is a declarative tool for creating endpoints.
“By being hosted at the Linux Foundation, the Lura Project will extend the legacy of the Kraken open-source framework and be better poised to support its massive adoption among more than one million servers every month,” said Albert Lombardi, CEO of Kraken. “The Foundation’s open governance model will accelerate development and community support for this amazing success.”
Mike Dolan, senior vice president and general manager of Projects at the Linux Foundation, added: “The Lura Project is an essential connection tissue for applications and services across open-source cloud projects, and so it’s a natural decision to host it at the Linux Foundation. We’re looking forward to providing the open governance structure to support Lura Project’s massive growth.”
Kraken was created in 2016. The project partners include 99P Labs, Ardan Studios, Hepsiburada, Open room, Postman, Skalena, and Stayforlong.
