Docker’s been enjoying plenty of uptake in the enterprise, but now there’s a new symbol of its success: dollar signs.
Specifically, it’s getting around $40 million via a round of series-C funding led by Sequoia Capital. Docker raised $15 million in series-B funding back in January, with the money used to “push toward the general availability of the Docker environment, develop commercial services that pair with the open source technology, and build a team to support the growing community,” as TechCrunch noted.
When asked what this new round of funding would represent for Docker, VP of marketing David Messina outlined several goals for the company, all revolving around one key concept: “To effectively deal with the overall demand within the Docker ecosystem.”
