Docker snaps up Apache Aurora devs for Swarm team
Another day, another Docker acquisition — this one for enterprises running workloads at scale.
Yesterday, Docker announced it had acquired Conductant, Inc., a three-man team (Bill Farner, David Chung, and John Sirois) that has built systems to scale workloads for outfits like Twitter, Google, and Zynga.
Some of the team’s work was released by Twitter to the Apache Foundation as Apache Aurora and Apache Mesos. The latter should be familiar to Docker users; it makes system resources like CPU and memory into abstractions that can be pooled and subdivided to run applications flexibly.
