The Argo Project Graduates from the CNCF
The CNCF declared that the Argo Project had attained graduation status on December 6th, 2022. This significant accomplishment will ensure the long-term viability of the Argo Project and will strengthen our commitment to the thriving Argo community. In addition to security assessments, third-party audits, governance evaluations, and numerous end-user interviews, the project must also demonstrate continuous development, diversity, and significant industry acceptance before it can graduate. It goes without saying that it is a difficult undertaking, and Red Hat is honored to be a part of it.
Early on, Red Hat recognized Argo’s potential to empower businesses and ease our customers’ transition to GitOps. We have great expectations for Argo after graduation and are proud of the community’s efforts in bringing the project to CNCF graduation.

About The Argo Project
Most people who are familiar with the Cloud Native landscape automatically think “Argo CD” when they hear or think the word “Argo,” yet the Argo Project encompasses much more than just Argo CD. The Argo Project is a collection of DevOps technologies designed to simplify the work of SREs and developers. Argo Workflows is actually the tool set that projects use the most frequently (based on the number of GitHub stars). The Argo Project’s graduating tools are:
Argo Workflows – Argo Workflows is a cloud-native workflow engine that is well-liked in the AI/ML community. Workflows for CI usage have increased significantly.
Argo CD – Argo CD is currently a popular issue in the field of Cloud Native; Argo CD adopts a GitOps strategy for scaling up application management and deployment on Kubernetes.
Argo Rollouts – With the aid of Argo Rollouts and enhanced progressive delivery controllers, end users can carry out Canary and Blue-Green Deployments using their own Ingress/ServiceMesh controllers. Argo Rollouts can be used independently or in conjunction with Argo CD.
Argo Events – A general event bus with dependency management is Argo Events.
What’s Next for Argo and OpenShift GitOps
The Argo project has our whole commitment here at Red Hat. OpenShift GitOps is built on the foundation of Argo CD, and our technical team is still a major contributor upstream. Argo CD and Argo Notifications are already included in OpenShift GitOps, and we’re eager to continue offering our clients support and new capabilities from the Argo Project. Argo Rollouts will soon be a part of Red Hat’s OpenShift GitOps portfolio and include top-notch integrations with the Red Hat hybrid cloud platform ecosystem.
We have a lot of great features planned for the upcoming months. Together with the upstream community, our technical team will work to make significant enhancements to the Argo Labs Image Updater project as well as multi-tenancy capabilities and user experience. Additionally, OpenShift GitOps will soon include support for running on ARM computers, broadening our multi-arch availability.
Through OperatorHub, OpenShift GitOps v1.7 is currently accessible. Through OperatorHub, OpenShift GitOps v1.7 is currently accessible. Check out the release announcement or our OpenShift GitOps Cookbook for more information about what is included in this release.
