We are proud to say that the movement to Dockerize applications is continuing to gain momentum and is making us look forward to more excitement to come. After a remarkable 2014 that included reaching over 100 million downloads, 70,000 Dockerized apps and nearly 740 contributors, Docker started 2015 as the beneficiary of three distinct awards. Docker has been honored as an InfoWorld Technology of the Year Awards winner and a CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendor, and Fig received an honorable mention for the 2014 Black Duck Open Source Rookies awards.
- InfoWorld Technology of the Year Awards: Docker received this award for demonstrating a new and innovative way to package and isolate applications, prompting a new approach to DevOps. The InfoWorld Technology of the Year Awards recognizes a wide-range of technologies – from lightest Web development framework to the heaviest rack-mount SAN qualifies – to make up its list of 32 favorites. The winners represent the very best products that InfoWorld reviewers tinkered with last year.
- CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors: This list recognizes Docker as one of the most innovative cloud companies supporting the IT channel. CRN selects winners based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers – ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers. Coverage of the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com
- 2014 Black Duck Open Source Rookies Awards: Docker’s acquisition of Orchard Laboratories Ltd. in July has proven to be a successful maneuver early on. Today, Orchard’s product Fig – which provides fast distributed application composition using Docker – has been named an honorable mention for the 2014 Black Duck Open Source Rookies awards. The seventh annual awards recognize top new open source products initiated in 2014.
The Docker community continues to play an instrumental role in the development and wide-spread adoption of the open source platform and we could not be more thankful for their support and contributions throughout this incredible ride. We are at the edge of ours seats waiting to see what 2015 has in store.
