Hykes' Legacy

It's rare to discuss the legacy of someone just 34 years old. But Docker partners credit Hykes with already having made a lasting impact on the industry.

"I feel that Solomon was the person who democratized containers," said Chris Ciborowski, CEO of Nebulaworks, a container implementation specialist based in Southern California.

While others had recognized the potential of container technology before Hykes, "it was his vision for the abstraction allowing container images and the runtime to become what it is today," Ciborowski told CRN.

"Many of us owe Solomon for creating the Docker technology, which made our business possible," said Sheng Liang, CEO of Rancher Labs, a developer of container management software.

"Docker's success speaks for itself and will always be Solomon's legacy," said Alexis Richardson, CEO of WeaveWorks, a container startup based in the U.K. "A whole industry has sparked into life in which Docker containers are the standard application package."
