June 9, 2014 9:30am PT On March 20, 2013, we released the first version of Docker.  After 15 months, 8,741 commits from more than 460 contributors, 2.75 million downloads, over 14,000 “Dockerized” apps, and feedback from 10s of 1000s of users about their experience with Docker, from a single container on a laptop to 1000s in production in the cloud … we’re excited to announce that it’s here: Docker 1.0. It’s a milestone we celebrate with the entire Docker community, for without the community’s contributions, pull requests, and answering of each other’s questions on IRC and forums none of this…

This morning, the Cloud Foundry Foundation announced its expanded roster of sponsors.  Docker was part of that list, for a number of reasons: 1) Generally speaking, we are excited to see the pace of innovation in the Platform as a Service space, and are glad to see that open source projects like Cloud Foundry and others are leading the way 2) As big believers in open governance, we are happy to support projects that are seeking broad-based participation, with influence driven fundamentally by code contribution 3) We are excited by the many moves across the PaaS landscape to leverage Docker…

If you were surfing AWS’ homepage this morning you may have seen the Docker “win whale” on display.  That’s because today Amazon and Docker are announcing that AWS Elastic Beanstalk, now fully supports running and managing dockerized applications. This is a great win for developers using Docker and AWS.  After building and testing their application in a Docker container on their laptop, developers can now ship it to AWS Elastic Beanstalk, which auto-magically manages the runtime provisioning, load balancing, and auto-scaling.  And should developers wish for a bit more runtime control, they can ship the same container – unchanged –…

We’re excited to include the following guest blog post by our friend Dustin Kirkland, Ubuntu Cloud Product Manager at Canonical There is a design pattern, occasionally found in nature, when some of the most elegant and impressive solutions often seem so intuitive, in retrospect. For me, Docker is just that sort of game changing, hyper-innovative technology, that, at its core,  somehow seems straightforward, beautiful, and obvious. Linux containers, repositories of popular base images, snapshots using copy-on-write filesystem features.  Brilliant, yet so simple.  Docker.io for the win! I clearly recall nine long months ago, intrigued by a fervor of HackerNews excitement pulsing around…

After a year of hard work, our growth has been tremendous, and our traction nothing less than incredible. In particular, consumption of Docker tee-shirts has gone through the roof. While this is arguably very different from what we had in mind last year when we announced Docker, we can’t ignore the Market anymore, and we decided to embrace this new trend as a logical evolution for the company. Today, we are glad to announce that Docker Inc. is pivoting around a new, great idea: selling Docker shirts. Happy customers Our metrics prove it: we have at least 100% satisfied customers….

  It’s been a year now since Docker was launched. Solomon Hykes, first demoed it during PyCon 2013, it then leaked on Hacker News, and several days later Docker was officially launched and open sourced. Since then, 370 contributors joined the project, 60+ Docker Meetup Groups were launched in 27 different countries, Docker has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times, dotCloud became Docker and recently announced DockerCon. Docker would not have much significance without its massive community. We’ve noticed some amazing things about you that we’ve listed for our 1 year celebration. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
