Docker CEO Provides Update on Growth

By Paula Bernier
June 21, 2016

Docker CEO Ben Golub yesterday in a keynote and media briefing offered an update on the fantastic growth its brand of containers has seen since launching just more than three years ago.

Thirty to 70 percent of all enterprises are using Docker in some shape or form, he said. Sixty percent of those using Docker are using it in production, he added, and 25 percent of them already have their apps containerized.

Docker users come in all sizes and from a variety of verticals. Goldman Sachs is among the more high profile Docker converts, Golub indicated. The company expects to be running a quarter of its apps over Docker this year, with plans to ultimately have 90 percent of them on Docker.

There are 460,000 Dockerized apps, reflecting 3,000 percent growth in 2 years, and 4.1 billion image pulls. And there are more than 95,000 Docker projects on GitHub, Golub said.

He added that there have been more than 2,900 Docker contributors. In the past month, on Engine alone, 986 people interacted with the repository, he said. Two-thirds of engine contributions are external, he noted.

Engagement by the developer community around Docker is event this week in Seattle, where more than 4,000 attendees have congregated at DockerCon and the exhibitor hall and general sessions were filled with an enthusiastic crowd.

During yesterday’s DockerCon media briefing, Golub also indicated the company is in good shape financially. He said the $180 million it raised last year hasn’t yet been use, and that its revenues are growing much faster than its expenses.

Docker solutions, he added, are sold by the company’s 30-person sales force. The company also works with Accenture, Booz Allen, and major cloud providers, he said. Docker commercial Engine will be shipping with every HP server, he added. Docker also has a relationship with HP to sell its Docker Datacenter (through all HP sales people and HP sales channel). Docker has a similar relationship with IBM, he said.
