Docker, an open-source engine for deploying applications as lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers that will run virtually anywhere, has secured $15 million in Series B financing led by Greylock Partners. The funding will be allocated to product development and acceleration of Docker's growing ecosystem, as well as building out the company’s commercial product and channels. Additional participants in the round included Insight Venture Partners and existing investors Benchmark and Trinity Ventures.
As part of the transaction, current Greylock partner and former VMware executive Jerry Chen will be joining the company’s Board of Directors, bringing his experience and knowledge of virtualization, cloud and IT management. Docker has now raised nearly $29 million in total funding.
