Last week, someone posted a tweet about Docker that was both one of the funniest– and one of the scariest– we’d seen. Ready 2 deploy @docker. Can’t wait to ignore “not production ready” warnings. Docker is less than 6 months old, and is currently at version 0.5.1. We – and the Docker community – are still rapidly iterating. So, we make a point of saying that we’re not production ready. However, with companies like eBay, Cloudflare, and Mailgun talking about plans to use us in production, and with major projects like Deis, Flynn, and CoreOS building on top of us, getting to a “production ready” state has assumed paramount importance. Our current goal is to release a production ready version of Docker in October.
