Docker reveals its secret to success | #DockerCon

The architectural change in Cloud computing sparked by Docker is a rare occurrence. And a few key practices made Docker, Inc. successful enough to bring about this critical change. First, Docker realized the importance of agility in infrastructure and capitalized on this.

Businesses like Amazon proved that using an agile application is critical to business survival.  “If you’re not trying to learn how to take advantage of agile infrastructure, of agile applications, you’re going to be left behind,” Scott Johnston, SVP of Product at Docker, told theCube at DockerCon 2015.

Everything starts with developers, and Docker has considered this. They made it easy for a single developer to purchase and use Docker, and the rest of the IT team has no choice but to support it.

Appealing to different audiences

By offering three different options, Docker is appealing to different audiences. There is an experimental branch for those interested in cutting-edge technology, a staple branch designed for running a business, and a 12-month commercial solutions package.

The last key to success has been in providing a portable product that is not limited. “We will include an implementation that works well for the developer on their desktop, out of the box,” Johnston said
