Tutum technology bobs back to surface as Docker Cloud
NY-born firm now totally Docker native
The Tutum technology Docker borged late last year has resurfaced in the form of Docker Cloud.
Docker bought NY-based Tutum back in October, for an undisclosed sum. At the time, Tutum had under ten employees, and was pushing its service as a "limitless" free beta.
Back then, Docker described its new buy as a complete platform to build, ship, and run distributed applications. And then pretty much stopped talking about it, until today.
In a blog posting on Docker's website today, Tutum co-founder Borja Burgos-Galindo announced the immediate availability of Docker Cloud, which he described as "the new cloud service by Docker that expands on the features of Tutum, brings a tighter integration with Docker Hub, and provides new updates and fixes."
So, it's a new version of Tutum? No, it's much more than that, of course. It now includes native integration with key elements of Docker, including Docker Hub, Docker ID and the Docker official repositories. Burgos-Galindo promised applications could be scaled with a few clicks, with integrated and automated build, test and deployment enabling continuous delivery.
Burgos-Galindo promised more capabilities in the coming months, including additional collaboration capabilities, and expanding the Docker platform capabilities available within Docker Cloud.
When Tutum was bought by Docker, it had yet to add a price list to its website. Docker Cloud will be available on a "simple consumption-based model" with the first node free, and additional nodes costing $0.02/node/hour. ®
