Containerize Yourself: Google and Docker are a Powerful Pair
Quite often referred to as the new darling in virtualization and cloud, Docker has just launched their official 1.0 release at DockerCon and it is nicely timed as we see more Docker news coming from all around.
Google and Docker – A Sign of a Strong Future

We should be seeing more integration with Docker into Google, as well as its biggest competitive target Amazon Web Services.
