What our partners say
"We see an increasing number of customers who need to operate machine connectivity efficiently as a component of larger Industrial IoT solutions. Softing’s containerized connectivity products and Portainer make machine connectivity easy to use and easy to scale in production environments - an ideal combination for many organizations and users at the interface between IT and OT."
"Our OPC Router is a no-code software for connecting cloud, ERP systems, databases and devices that have been proven in the industry for almost 20 years. With Portainer's similar no-code approach, the use cases of the OPC Router are easily orchestrated and rolled out across the enterprise with just a few "clicks". Therefore, Docker container management by Portainer is a perfect match."
"Portainer has an excellent container management platform with Industry 4.0 specific features. Easy-to-use, the platform allows to securely deploy and manage MES on the customer's infrastructure without requiring extensive IT knowledge. Our partnership is an ideal opportunity to provide new and existing customers with a containerized MES across a variety of industries."
"MQTT brokers form the communication backbone of the industrial internet of things and lie at the core of most architectural designs. They facilitate the connectivity and data transmission among things as well as applications on the edge, in the cloud, and in hybrid setups bridging the world of OT and IT. However, managing a fleet of MQTT brokers through different versions and configurations requires diligence and knowledge, which is greatly simplified and supported using Portainer as the management platform"
Portainer gives us the flexibility to work with different software tools using the same UI and API. Especially the API provides us new opportunities as a software vendor and as a system integrator in the digital transformation market. Portainer is available from the edge to the cloud without any vendor lock-in. Thanks to the whole Portainer-Team to save us a lot of time and work!
“The benefits of partnering with Portainer were evident to our team very quickly. LiveSwitch involves a number of complex systems that have to scale up and down dynamically, at extreme scale, with massive throughput and a tremendously low tolerance for any sort of latency. This complexity lends itself well to a powerful container management platform such as Portainer.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to common questions we get about Portainer and Edge deployments.
Portainer’s Agent is very lightweight and only uses about 10 MB of RAM. That’s why it runs also on Edge Devices with limited hardware resources.
The supported architectures and the compatible and required Docker or Kubernetes versions can be found at: https://docs.portainer.io/start/requirements-and-prerequisites.
Kubernetes is only needed if you want to manage your Kubernetes cluster via Portainer.
