About Docker

Our mission at Docker is to create tools of mass innovation

Docker, Inc and Docker Project Together

Docker is the original author and primary sponsor of the Docker open source project. Together with the community of maintainers and contributors, Docker aims to deliver open tools to help developers build applications with open APIs to help sysadmins better manage these applications.

Agile Applications Make Agile Companies

Docker containers and tooling make building and shipping applications dramatically easier and faster. On average companies using Docker experience a 7X improvement in how frequently they are able to ship software. More innovation delivers value to their customers faster.
