JD.com or as known by many as Jingdong Mall, has become a force to reckon with in the e-commerce industry in China. With a total user base of 2 billion, Jingdong is a leading front that continues to shape the retail market.
Recently, in honor of their usage and contribution towards the open source projects, Jingdong Mall was recently awarded the Top End User Award. The highly coveted award was presented to them by Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
About Cloud Native Computing Foundation, it ranks as the leader in the open source community which related to the Kubernetes and cloud-native software and technologies. During the firms’ conference, many technologists and the associated end users gathered for further talks on the open source project development.
Due to the high customer demand, Jingdong Mall processes large datasets which need to be assessed and accessible on demand. Back in 2013, the platform hosted close to two billion images to the customers. However, in 2018 there are trillions of images and this account for daily intake of 100 million daily images.
This fostered the collaboration with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. The move has seen D.com run the largest Kubernetes cluster in terms of production across the world.
Due to the changing climate in the business environment, JD.com was able to shift early to the Kubernetes during the initial stages of conceptualization of the infrastructure with the constant growth of the clusters.
Years later, the relationship between JD.com and CNCF has grown tremendously while featuring some of the top developers and users. The partnership was mutually beneficial as JD.com contributed to the open source projects development while at the same time benefitting.
This led to JD.com becoming the first platinum end-user member with CNCF. JD.com makes use of open source development as a service strategy.
