Docker is used by millions of developers to build, share, and run any app, anywhere, and 55% of professional developers use Docker every day at work. In these work environments, the increase in outside attacks on software supply chains is accelerating developer demand for Docker’s trusted content, including Docker Official Images and Docker Verified Publisher images. Finally, the rapid global growth in developers – to an estimated 45 million by 2030 – pushes us to scale sustainably so we may continue to provide an innovative, free Docker experience that developers love.
To meet these challenges, today we’re announcing updates and extensions to our product subscriptions: Personal, Pro, Team, and Business. These updated product subscriptions provide the productivity and collaboration developers rely on with the scale, security, and trusted content businesses require, and do so in a manner sustainable for Docker.
The new Docker Personal subscription replaces the Docker Free subscription. With its focus on open source communities, individual developers, education, and small businesses – which together account for more than half of Docker users – Docker Personal is free for these communities and continues to allow free use of all its components – including Docker CLI, Docker Compose, Docker Build/BuildKit, Docker Engine, Docker Desktop, Docker Hub, Docker Official Images, and more.
