We're wrapping up a great week here at UShareSoft. On Tuesday we announced that the company has been acquired by the Fujitsu Group, who will be integrating our UForge platform into their Cloud Service K5, part of the Digital Business MetaArc platform. Additionally, UShareSoft will be leading Fujitsu's new European cloud services R&D center to help drive the company's global cloud business.

On the same day, UShareSoft's hammr project, also won the 2015 OW2 Innovation Award at this years Annual Conference. hammr is an open source command line tool, based on Python, for creating repeatable machine images for hybrid cloud from a single configuration file.
We're very proud of the team that develop hammr, which has already been integrated into AppHub, the European open source marketplace, and will enable OW2 projects to easily include their software in the OW2 Market Place, by providing ready-to-use templates that include operating system packages, configuration logic, other required software and of course, the OW2 project itself.
You can find out more about hammr and the team, and download it from www.hammr.io. Use it, contribute and let us know what you think.
This is the second in our series of Docker blog posts. The first post, by James our CTO, focused on why UShareSoft for Docker software governance and transparency. In this post, we'll tell you exactly how to build a Docker base image using our tools.
By a base image, we mean a machine image containing just the necessary bits required to launch your container image. You can do this in two ways: using our UForgeNow SaaS platform, or using hammr, an open source tool for creating machine images for different environments from a single configuration file.
