From last funding transaction in Feb-2015.
"Founded in 2008 and based in London, ClusterHQ has management in California and its engineering team in Bristol. While the company does already offer paid services, it has stated that commercialisation of its solution has yet to fully begin; instead, it remains focused on building out features for Flocker.
As the market for container technology is still nascent, there have so far been very few acquisitions in the space. In March, however, Docker acquired US-based Kitematic (a tool which allows developers to create and deploy Docker containers on Macs using a graphical interface) for an undisclosed sum.
Traditionally, databases have been a key challenge to container applications as they are difficult to reliably transfer from one hardware environment to another. ClusterHQ’s Flocker tool, also open source, allows developers to manage data volumes in Docker clusters, making data as portable as their Docker containers. Like many open source companies, ClusterHQ generates revenue through paid add-ons and services related to Flocker.
Another container company of note is Commerce Guys (a Go4Venture Advisers client) which, as well as offering open source e-commerce software for Drupal, has launched a Docker-like Platform-as-a-Service called Platform – a groundbreaking hosting and development tool currently supporting Drupal, Symphony and PHP web applications."
