Docker Acquires Infinit

Docker has announced its latest acquisition - the file transfer app, Infinit. Now, the company is planning to make it open-source.
The company in its official website states,
“Using their technology, we will provide secure distributed storage out of the box, making it much easier to deploy stateful services and legacy enterprise applications on Docker. This will be delivered in a very open and modular design, so operators can easily integrate their existing storage systems, tune advanced settings, or simply disable the feature altogether. Oh, and we’re going to open-source the whole thing.”

Julien Quintard states that with time, the Infinit’s underlying code will go on to become available as open source software, and that it is also in the process of adding support for iSCSI and S3 storage service from public cloud infrastructure which would be provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Infinit was founded by Quintard and Baptiste Fradin in the year 2012. Since then, the company is offering apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. Investors for this deal include 360 Capital Partners and Alven Capital, however the terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.
Julien Quintard, in its official blog states,
“Docker has the potential to reshape infrastructure software at large. This is why, even though Infinit was about to close a significant round of financing, the team has preferred to join Docker in order to have a bigger and more direct impact.”
