As Joep Piscaer noted, something big happened over at Docker last week:
Two important things happened today at Docker to separate the two businesses.
- Mirantis to acquire the Enterprise parts of Docker
- Docker raised $35 million for Docker Desktop and Hub and replaces its CEO with Scott Johnston
This was undoubtedly one deal in two transactions, but it’s still a very interesting move. And dare I say an important one? Docker needs to survive. The core IP is just too valuable and widespread. Yet the company hasn’t been able to get “over the hump” in the enterprise market.
Selling the enterprise bits to Mirantis makes sense. They know how to do this stuff.
Keeping the developer bits in a new company (with some cash) makes sense too.
Let’s see how they execute on this!
