SODA Foundation is an open source project under Linux Foundation that aims to establish an open, unified, and autonomous data management framework for data mobility from the edge, to core, to cloud.

SODA brings together industry leaders to collaborate on building a common framework to promote standardization and best practices for data storage, data protection, data governance, data analytics, etc. to support IoT, big data, machine learning, and other applications.

We are fostering collaboration and innovation across vendors, system integrators, cloud service providers, standards organizations, and consortiums across different industries, to provide quality end-to-end solutions to end users.
