Docker Desktop is no longer free for large organisations

As per the blog and the Docker Desktop license agreement:

Here’s a summary of the key changes:

  • Our Docker Subscription Service Agreement include a change to the terms of use for Docker Desktop
    • It remains free for small businesses (fewer than 250 employees AND less than $10 million in revenue), personal use, education, and non-commercial open source projects.
    • It requires a paid subscription for professional use in larger enterprises.
  • The effective date of these terms is August 31, 2021. There is a grace period until January 31, 2022 for those that will require a paid subscription to use Docker Desktop.
  • The existing Docker Free subscription has been renamed Docker Personal and we have introduced a Docker Business subscription.
  • The Docker Pro, Team, and Business subscriptions include commercial use of Docker Desktop.
