SODA Foundation is an open source project under Linux Foundation that aims to foster an ecosystem of open source data management and storage software for data autonomy. SODA Foundation offers a neutral forum for cross-projects collaboration and integration and provides end users quality end-to-end solutions.
SODA is SODA Open Data Autonomy. It is an open source unified autonomous data framework for data mobility from edge to core to cloud.
SODA Foundation focuses to build unified frameworks, APIs and solutions in the areas of

SODA Foundation is a home of all the projects for storage and data. It hosts many projects and also extends the ecosystem through partners and third party projects which can help to build unified data solutions for various use cases.
SODA (SODA Open Data Autonomy) Architecture is getting evolved to realize a challenging goal of building a unified framework for data and storage management. It connects the application platforms and solutions to the backend storages seamlessly, be it on prem or cloud through unified API layer. This enables the application platforms to focus to build more valuable use cases rather than worrying about managing the underlying storage backends and data management.
The key architecture tenets are:
As mentioned, SODA Architecture is getting refined and optimized for different application technologies, use cases, platforms and storage backends. If you have any comments and inputs, please join us here.

The SODA Ecosystem has many projects under its umbrella, which work in unison to solve the various data and storage challenges. Some of the important ones are :
SODA Dashboard SODA Dashboard provides a front end UI which integrates with the different APIs provided by SODA API. This dashboard can be used to test basic SODA functionality. More details here
SODA API The key external interface to platforms, which can do a seamless integration with heterogeneous storage backends. Provides the standardization for Data / Storage Management APIs. More details here
SODA Controller In the API flow, controller plays a critical role for all the API flow management and tracking to handle all the state machine and metadata management requirements. More details here
SODA Dock It is a docking station for heterogeneous storage backends! This is where all the different storage vendors’ drivers for various backends get attached. More details here
SODA Plugin SODA North-Bound Plugin Project focuses to extend all the industry platforms and application solutions to interface with SODA API or be compliant with it. More details here
SODA Multicloud SODA Multicloud project provides a cloud vendor agnostic data management for hybrid cloud, crosscloud or incloud. It can be hosted on prem or cloud native. More details here
SODA Orchestration The Orchestration framework provides flexibility to use existing workflows or define customized workflows to get the simplified execution of tasks. More details here
SODA Intelligence It is a reference implementation of intelligent monitoring which can utilize SODA Telemetry, exporter with Kafka (or similar) and a standard ML algorithm. More details here
