Today, almost one year after officially launching Docker on Hacker News, we just passed the 10,000 stars mark on GitHub, making Docker the 44th most starred project on GitHub. This is a very special achievement for us, and we wanted to take this opportunity to say Thank You. Thank you to our incredible community, to all the Docker meetups organizers around the world, to our great partners, to all the hackers and early adopters who supported us from the very beginning, and to the 346 contributors: you made all of this possible. It’s been an incredible adventure so far, and we’re excited for the road ahead.

We’re thrilled to keep the good news coming. One week after closing a $15 million series B funding round, we’re excited to announce that Black Duck Software has recognized Docker as a top new open source project that commenced in 2013.

After reviewing thousands of open source projects and analyzing project activity, commits per day, project team attributes and other factors,…

Today we are very glad to announce that Baidu, the leading Chinese search engine, is using Docker for Baidu App Engine (BAE), its PaaS offering. As they were looking for alternatives and improvements for their “sandbox” approach, the Baidu team met and discussed with Jérôme Petazzoni in China during the 5th China Cloud Computing Conference. They decided that Docker might fit their requirements, and after several weeks of tests and studies, they took the decision to use Docker for the new version of BAE. They quoted multiple reasons for this choice: Docker (and containers in general) are a generic approach, making it…

Docker in the Wild Blitline is a SaaS for image processing — We provide enterprise level, massively parallel, image processing services so that our customers can focus on building innovative software instead of building and maintaining image queues and worker machines. Blitline has it’s own JSON API which interprets commands stored in the JSON, and in turn uses ImageMagick libraries to execute those commands on Blitline’s cloud based worker machines. All this happens at a large scale, and speed, scalability, and security are paramount.

We’re excited to include the following guest blog post by our friends at Domino. Domino is a PaaS for data science — our goal is to give analysts and researchers easy access to powerful infrastructure, so they can focus on their analysis instead of worrying about custom tooling and environment setup. Docker has been enormously helpful to us, saving us many man-months of engineering effort. Before describing that in more detail, we’ll provide some context about what we mean by providing “powerful infrastructure.” Essentially, Domino provides three things:
