Docker, a Silicon Valley-based maker of container software, has raised more than $61 million of a $75 million round, according to an SEC filing.

Deal details: Bloomberg reported in August that the company was seeking a valuation of $1.3 billion, up from the $1 billion valuation when it last raised funds in 2015. No investors are disclosed, although SAP cloud executive Robert Enslin is now listed as a director. Docker declined comment.

Background: Container software lets developers package select software applications together and run them on any machine without having to port over the entire operating system and environment. Although Docker helped popularize a new generation of container software, it has competition from groups like Mesosphere and Google's Kubernetes. In May, former Concur CEO Steve Singh took over the chief executive job as the company pushes to build a big business out of its open source software.

Sen. Kamala Harris appealed to Black voters in Georgia on Friday, urging them to "honor the ancestors" by casting ballots, and again calling President Trump a "racist."

Why it matters: The U.S. saw a significant decline in African-American voter turnout between 2012 and 2016, reaching its lowest point since 2000. Higher turnout among Black Americans this year could tip the balance in favor of Democrats in key battleground states, including Georgia.
