Hi Vivek! Which feature or product decision on the enterprise product do you think was influenced the most (if any) by the OSS community surrounding Docker in the first few years?

Vivek Saraswat Ask Me Anything

Hi Fernando! Pretty much everything from the open-source community was incorporated into the enterprise product as it was an open-core model. So we were certainly heavily influenced by the community. Key pieces from the OSS included the Docker engine, Swarm/Swarmkit, secrets management, storage volumes, overlay networks, etc. More generally, I think a commercial open-source company cannot be built without balancing the needs of both community and commercial alike.
