Mirantis Acquires Docker Enterprise

Docker Enterprise Platform is widely used. One third of Fortune 100 companies use Docker Enterprise.

The two companies will continue to work together contributing to open source development and ensuring integration between their products.
Customers can expect:
- A zero touch, as-a-service experience to eliminate the administration, integration and operation burden for customers
- Mirantis Kubernetes and related cloud-native technologies
