Launched in March 2013, Docker is an open platform for building, shipping and running distributed applications. Docker provides a platform that enables any application to be created and run as a collection of consistent, low-overhead Docker containers that work across virtually any infrastructure. This new model liberates developers from application and infrastructure dependencies, significantly accelerates the software development lifecycle, and enables substantial improvements in infrastructure cost and efficiency.
Dockerized applications empower continuous business innovation shaped by software and that potential has fueled rapid adoption by web-scale companies such as Baidu, Cambridge Healthcare, eBay, Gilt, Groupon, Spotify and Yandex. These companies are reporting acceleration in development/build/test cycles from weeks to minutes, and increases in data center efficiency by 10X or more.
The people of Docker, Inc. are the original authors and the primary contributors to and maintainers of the Docker open source project. We also run the platforms and systems that make the Docker project run, including the Docker Hub Registry, and provide materials and support for the rapidly expanding Docker community.
