Docker Sells its dotCloud PaaS Business to cloudControl

Berlin-based cloudControl agreed to acquire Docker Inc's dotCloud PaaS (platform as a service) business.  Financial terms were not disclosed.

Docker, which entered the PaaS business in 2011, said it is now entirely focused on the the Docker container project.

“While we need to focus our resources to truly seize the opportunity behind the Docker project, it was very important to us to provide a smooth transition for the dotCloud PaaS customers,” said Ben Golub, CEO, Docker, Inc. “cloudControl has years of experience running a world class PaaS, and distinguished themselves by the depth of their dedication to investing in the dotCloud platform and customer base. With cloudControl taking over, customers can continue to rely on the dotCloud PaaS for their mission critical applications.”
