Docker is a container software company with a solution designed to allow applications to deploy with greater ease and security. While the company faced a period of uncertainty in which it failed to find a place in a commercial market, selling its enterprise business and switching CEOs twice in 2019, Docker seems to have regained its footing under the direction of CEO Scott Johnston, completing two venture capital funding rounds under his leadership for a combined total of more than $120 million. Investors include Bain Capital Ventures, Citi Ventures, Salesforce Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Greylock Partners, Insight Partners, and Atlassian Ventures. As of March 2022, the company has achieved a valuation of $2 billion.
