Description

The docker project evolved out of the PaaS movement, unlocking polyglot cloud-native applications. But it was only a piece of the puzzle to enable platforms, applications and a broader ecosystem. What lessons can be learned from the docker ecosystem?

SHOW NOTES:

HOW DID docker/DOCKER EVOLVE?

Between 2008 and 2013, dozens of PaaS platforms emerged. Within the platform, they all had a model for allocating compute resources, mostly through the use of Linux LXC and cGroups -- what would become containers. dotCloud was the PaaS company started by Solomon Hykes that eventually became Docker. 

LESSONS LEARNED FOR THE FUTURE

  • Containers were a fundamental building block for next-gen applications and platforms.
  • Docker/docker created a massive community of users, but frustrated the ecosystem of partners. 
  • Project / Company naming conflicts are very hard to resolve (“docker” vs. “Docker”)
  • Successful ecosystems allow a broad set of participants to monetize different elements of the technology. Not having a monetization model is not a good plan. 
  • Docker was the last software company to not monetize through offering a managed/SaaS cloud service.
