Frequently Asked Questions

Here's some of the common questions we get around pricing. If you don't find the answer you are looking for, please Contact Sales or Contact Us.

What do you mean by Node?

A “node” can be described as a “server” (whether this is an actual physical server, a VM, a Raspberry Pi, your desktop or laptop, an industrial computer, or an embedded computing device) that is capable of running containers (via Docker, Kubernetes or another orchestrator) which is either running the Portainer Server or is under the management of a Portainer Server installation.

View “What’s a Node for licensing purposes?” for more information.

We also offer a range of pricing for different node sizes:

- For Data Center/Cloud; Standard nodes (unlimited capacity), or Scale Out nodes (<= 16 cores or 16vCPU).

- For Edge Compute nodes; Edge Server (<= 16 cores), Edge Gateway/ Industrial/PC (<= 10 cores), Edge Linux PLC/ Mini PC (<= 4 cores) or IoT Sensor nodes (<=1Ghz). 

Do Docker, Swarm, Kubernetes and Nomad require different licenses? No. A single Portainer license supports container management across all orchestrators and environments. 
What edition is right for me; Community Edition or Business Edition?

Portainer Community Edition is open source software, designed for individuals or small self-managing teams. It is community supported. CE is perfect for home lab use and learning how to manage containers.

Business Edition is a commercially supported product that includes features for Security, Access Management and Permission, and Auditing, making it more suitable for company use.

What level of support can I expect?

For customers who have purchased a Business Edition Professional or Enterprise Server, our standard license gives you 9x5 next business day support. If you need 24x7 support, then please get in touch with our sales team and we’ll supply pricing. For more information regarding support review our Support Terms

Home and Student license holders, 3 Nodes Free, and 5 Nodes Free Users can get community support via Github Discussions.

Can I move between Community Edition and Business Editions?

Upgrading from Community Edition to Business Edition is as simple as deploying the Portainer Business instance instead of Community Edition, reusing all of your existing database/settings.

Downgrading from Business Edition to Community Edition can be tricky. Please visit Can I downgrade from Portainer BE to Portainer CE on our Knowledge Base to ensure you follow the correct process. 

Do you offer additional consulting services or help? Yes we offer professional services to cover consulting, implementation, configuration and support. We also offer 24x7 support if needed.
