Quotes

"While the size, composition, and valuation of the round are great, they are really a lagging indicator of the amazing work done by the Docker team and community. They demonstrate the amazing impact our open source project is having. Our user community has grown exponentially into the millions and we have a constantly expanding network of contributors, partners, and adopters."
...But the rest of Silicon Valley, he says, is not nearly frightened enough: " No one's fearful , everyone's greedy, and it will eventually end."
“We want to be able to go to those customers and say, ‘When you go with HP Helion, we give you that level of choice, "” Hilf told VentureBeat. “We’re not going to try to have you bet just on our public cloud.”"
"Private Business is a powerful engine of the UK economy, driving growth, employment, wealth creation and prosperity. As the only national awards in the UK entirely focussed on private business, it’s fitting that we recognise the long-term vision and ethos shared by many private enterprises of building something better for future generations."
