Docker’s mission is to build tools of mass innovation. To achieve this goal, we collaborate with the best developers in the world, working with the open source projects and organizations tackling the various aspects of containerization: the Docker open source projects with more than 2,000 contributors, the Apache Software Foundation with Apache Aurora, the Linux Foundation with the MirageOS, the Open Container Initiative (OCI) collaborative projects and the Cloud Foundry foundation. It is through these collaborations that we have been able to democratize complex technologies like OS containers and orchestrators such as Docker Swarm to make them accessible to organizations of all sizes.

Docker is a Founding Member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) The past four weeks has been unparalleled in terms of open, collaborative activity among the ecosystem around container-based technologies. It started with Docker’s efforts in driving the Open Container Initiative (OCI); which was formerly known as the Open Container Project) in concert with Microsoft, Red Hat, Google, and nearly 20 other companies to deliver an open, universal container image format and runtime under the auspices of the Linux Foundation. The response to the OCI has been incredibly positive, and the OCI has already been making huge strides in…
