  It’s been a year now since Docker was launched. Solomon Hykes, first demoed it during PyCon 2013, it then leaked on Hacker News, and several days later Docker was officially launched and open sourced. Since then, 370 contributors joined the project, 60+ Docker Meetup Groups were launched in 27 different countries, Docker has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times, dotCloud became Docker and recently announced DockerCon. Docker would not have much significance without its massive community. We’ve noticed some amazing things about you that we’ve listed for our 1 year celebration. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Having kept tabs on Docker since its dotCloud days, I’m excited to come aboard this week. Ben and Solomon are building a great community, team, and company, and it’s a privilege to join at this stage of growth. Spurred in many ways by the increasing adoption of cloud and virtualization, the pressure on developers and operations to ship apps and updates faster, at scale, with quality, has never been greater. And while this pressure will never ever be fully satisfied, the rapid growth and enthusiastic engagement of the Docker community in the first year of its life highlight the interest…

We’re excited to announce that Docker, Inc. has closed a $15 M Series B round of funding. The round was led by Greylock Partners, with participation by Insight Venture Partners and our existing investors: Benchmark (Peter Fenton), Trinity Ventures (Dan Scholnick), and Jerry Yang/AME Cloud Ventures. This round is significant for a number of reasons. First, the fact that we could get a large round like this, at a really attractive valuation, led by one of the top venture firms, is a real testament to the excitement and promise that people are seeing in Docker. Perhaps more importantly, it’s a reflection…

Today we are very glad to announce that Baidu, the leading Chinese search engine, is using Docker for Baidu App Engine (BAE), its PaaS offering. As they were looking for alternatives and improvements for their “sandbox” approach, the Baidu team met and discussed with Jérôme Petazzoni in China during the 5th China Cloud Computing Conference. They decided that Docker might fit their requirements, and after several weeks of tests and studies, they took the decision to use Docker for the new version of BAE. They quoted multiple reasons for this choice: Docker (and containers in general) are a generic approach, making it…

Docker in the Wild Blitline is a SaaS for image processing — We provide enterprise level, massively parallel, image processing services so that our customers can focus on building innovative software instead of building and maintaining image queues and worker machines. Blitline has it’s own JSON API which interprets commands stored in the JSON, and in turn uses ImageMagick libraries to execute those commands on Blitline’s cloud based worker machines. All this happens at a large scale, and speed, scalability, and security are paramount.

We’re excited to include the following guest blog post by our friends at Domino. Domino is a PaaS for data science — our goal is to give analysts and researchers easy access to powerful infrastructure, so they can focus on their analysis instead of worrying about custom tooling and environment setup. Docker has been enormously helpful to us, saving us many man-months of engineering effort. Before describing that in more detail, we’ll provide some context about what we mean by providing “powerful infrastructure.” Essentially, Domino provides three things:
