Portainer Edge Agent

Manage containers wherever they might be.

In today’s world you can easily have hundreds - if not thousands - of Docker-enabled devices in your environment. Most of these systems run without any form of clustering or run a lean orchestrator such as Docker Swarm or Kubernetes.

Remote devices may be distributed across multiple sites and/or across many different networks, some may even be attached to the internet using mobile data or satellite. To be managed effectively, engineers need a way to control distributed instances centrally, which is exactly what Portainer does brilliantly.


  • Manage nodes and containers remotely in a safe and agile way
  • Focus on delivering apps without worrying where the node physically is
  • Compatible with storage devices, ethernet switches, IOT monitoring/control equipment and edge compute devices such as digital signage, smart POS consoles, and self-service KIOSKs.
  • Minimal footprint to minmimize CPU, memory and bandwith usage.
  • Highly secure. No two Edge agents can use the same token to communicate.
