Launch customers for the new service include Neustar and 8base, which are deploying the solution to hundreds of software developers.
“We have software developers all over the world. Improving their productivity while protecting the security of our codebase in today’s hybrid work environment is critical to us,” said Albert Santalo, Founder and CEO of 8base. “itopia helps us ship products faster and more securely, without disrupting our existing development workflows.”
Itopia Spaces provide a modern software development environment that better aligns with the way developers want to work.

The announcement is part of itopia’s deepening connection to the cloud computing community and Kubernetes and open source ecosystems, serving as strong support for itopia’s vision of simplifying hybrid working for software teams.
“As software organizations have more and more distributed workforces, there is a need to quickly onboard remote developers and ensure they have everything they need to be productive from n anywhere,” said Priyanka Sharma, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. “We are delighted that itopia has joined the CNCF to bring its expertise in distributed workforce technology to the cloud-native ecosystem and we look forward to driving innovation together.”
