Fluentd was conceived by Sadayuki "Sada" Furuhashi in 2011. Sada is a co-founder of Treasure Data, Inc., a primary sponsor of the Fluentd project. Since being open-sourced in October 2011, the Fluentd project has grown dramatically: dozens of contributors, hundreds of community-contributed plugins, thousands of users, and trillions of events collected, filtered and stored. Fluentd was accepted to Cloud Native Computing Foundation on November 8, 2016 and is at the Graduated project maturity level on 2019. And its development is maintained with the community.
