San Francisco startup Docker, which has come up with open-source technology for packaging up application code into movable containers, had a heck of a year in 2014. Big companies like Microsoft and IBM allied with it, a whole lot of developers woke up to the technology, and the startup announced not one but two funding rounds.

Today Docker quantified the growth of its technology in 2014 — in terms of the number of stars the Docker project picked up on GitHub, the number of applications bound up in Docker containers, and other metrics. In case you’re still looking for proof that Docker’s technology is taking off and becoming interesting as a supplement or alternative to virtual machines that run on top of physical servers, check out the stats in the infographic below.
