Docker, Inc. (formely known as dotCloud) is the company behind the open-source Docker project and the growing Docker ecosystem of people, products, platforms, and partners revolutionizing the way code is built, packaged, and deployed.
Docker aims to enable a new age of agile and creative development, by building "the button" that enables any code to instantly and consistently run on any server, anywhere.
Docker is an open source engine that enables any application to be deployed as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere. By delivering on the twin promises "Build Once…Run Anywhere” and “Configure Once…Run Anything," Docker has seen explosive growth, and its impact is being seen across devops, PaaS, scale-out, hybrid cloud and other environments that need a lightweight alternative to traditional virtualization.

The people of Docker, Inc. are the original authors and the primary contributors to and maintainers of the Docker project. We also run the platforms and systems that make the Docker project run, including the Docker public Indexand provide materials and support to the rapidly expanding Docker community.
