News

Alven Capital is proud to announce that Docker acquired distributed storage vendor Infinit.

Alven Capital is proud to announce that Docker acquired distributed storage vendor Infinit. Alven Capital co-led the $1.8M seed round in 2014, shortly after Infinit went to Techstars accelerator program in New York City, as we were impressed by Infinit’s technology strong potential.

Infinit is a file transfer application using a peer-to-peer networking model to connect both the sender’s and recipient’s computer directly.

Infinit’s technology operation scheme

As a result, the files are not stored on the cloud, and because Infinit relies on an end-to-end encryption mechanism, transfers are completely private such that only the sender and recipient can access the transferred data.

Docker develops an open source software for packaging up code into containers that can be deployed on many machines. The company plans to use Infinit’s technology to offer a convenient, distributed storage layer that integrates with its containers and existing storage services.
