Easy and secure - IoT Device Management
Why containers are the best way to deploy your Industry 4 Apps
Why Portainer for IIoT Device Management?
With more than 650.000 active users and more than 3.4 billion image pulls, Portainer is well-known in various Operational Technology (OT) and IT sectors. Portainer provides Edge specific features to support both container management and device management in Industrial IoT (IIoT) and IoT use cases as well as for regional data centers (Network Edge).
As organisations look to move the collection and processing of data closer to the point of data creation, there becomes a need to manage compute devices at a scale that dwarfs that of traditional data center systems. How can remote compute devices be maintained, updated, and the software stacks deployed, updated, and triaged, when you have many thousands under your control? The answer is with edge management, and managing devices in bulk.
Portainer is a toolset that allows many thousands of remote container hosts to be centrally managed from a single self-hosted instance of Portainer.
It is important to mention that Portainer won’t lead to a vendor lock-in when realizing cloud projects because of being runtime and orchestrator agnostic at the Edge – supporting Docker, Swarm, Kubernetes and Nomad. Therefore, Portainer preserves its customer’s independence of cloud providers. Of course, non-cloud projects can be implemented using Portainer as well.

Key Portainer Benefits
Avoid spending time on recurring tasks like onboarding
Reduce the staff skill level needed for Edge projects
Accept no compromises when it comes to security
IT Security is crucial for the transition between the OT and IT networks. We help the OT engineers to understand what they are doing.Supporting common characteristics of OT & IT networks, like air-gapped environments, segregation of OT and IT networks, secure connections across the internet, even across unreliable networks.
