Behind every tech giant is a treasure of innovative technology kept under wraps to preserve a strategic advantage. At Docker, we believe our job is to democratize these technologies by integrating them in tools that are easy to use and help people create new things. We did this for Linux containers, to help make applications more portable. We are also doing it with hypervisors and unikernels with the help of the Unikernel Systems team. Today we are proud to take a new step in this direction by acquiring Conductant, Inc.
Today, I’m proud to announce that the Conductant team has joined Docker. You probably haven’t heard of Conductant before because we have been operating in stealth mode for some time. We are Bill Farner, David Chung and John Sirois, and we come from places like Google, Twitter, and Zynga to join Docker on this amazing journey to change how people build, ship, and run code everywhere. In doing so, we expand the expertise at Docker in building and operating large-scale, mission critical systems. Expect great things in the future with our combined teams!
