Growth of the Company
Docker adoption has been growing rapidly. In fact, a study of 7000 businesses found that adoption of Docker rose 400% between September 2014 and November 2015.
The study, from infrastructure monitoring group Datadog, showed that Docker had almost none of the market in fall 2014 but was running on 6% of the servers tracked for the report by November. Interestingly enough, this open source software is particularly popular among enterprises: over half of firms with more than 500 hosts have used Docker, at least in testing environments.
