dotCloud and Docker join the Linux Foundation

Linux Foundation

We are very excited to announce that dotCloud has joined the Linux Foundation.

The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit consortium dedicated to fostering the growth of Linux and collaborative software development.

Docker obviously depends on a number of technologies developed by the members of the Linux community—including LinuX Containers (LXC), cgroups, and the kernel itself.

Ultimately, our goal is to build the “button” that enables any code to instantly and consistently run on any server anywhere. Achieving that goal is dependent not only on having a thriving open source community for Docker, but also by the continued success and spread of both Linux and collaborative software development in general.

In less than four months since Docker launched, we’ve been thrilled to see Docker integrations into open source projects such as OpenStack, Chef, Puppet, Vagrant, and mcollective, as well as the “dockerization” by our community of hundreds of open source projects, such as Redis, Memcached, PostgreSQL, Ruby, and more.

By joining the foundation, we are excited to support the amazing open source contributions that have come before us, and support those yet to come!
