Why Portainer?

Portainer accelerates container adoption. It reduces operational complexity and addresses the security challenges of running containers in Docker, Swarm and Kubernetes.

Portainer is a universal container management platform that doesn't lock you into a single technology or vendor


Portainer delivers for Platform Teams, Devs and DevSecOps

Platform Teams

Standardize container usage by providing Devs with an Internal Developer Platform with a secure API proxy, private registry integration and cluster provisioning templates.


Provision clusters and self-serve Git-Ops pipelines to quickly deploy, triage and understand the runtime status of their containers.

DevSecOps Teams

Integrate with CI/CD tools and identity management systems to centrally manage authentication, access, audit and SSO with Role Based Access Controls (RBAC).


Portainer works really well if you're new to containers

We facilitate your transition

From VMs to Containers with Portainer; we help you get started with Docker, aide in the learning of distributed micro-service fundamentals, and then when the time is right, help you transition to Kubernetes.

We show you what's possible

With Containers, helping you to discover the power of this game changing technology, without you having to go learn all the commands, and what the commands do; we make all features immediately obvious, allowing for easy exploration and experimentation.

We help you get going fast

With your container based micro-service in the shortest amount of time possible, by removing the platform complexity commonly associated with the leap into a fully orchestrated, declarative, * as Code world. Our No-Code UI lets you click to deploy any range of applications, of near limitless complexity.


How does Portainer work? The architecture

Portainer consists of two parts: a Server and an Agent. Both run as lightweight containers. The Portainer Agent runs on the node in your cluster and communicates with the Portainer Server. The Portainer Server centrally manages the nodes it connects to a single Portainer server can manage up to 25,000 nodes.

Why our Customers chose Portainer

Suat Ugurlu, Associate Director, Technology Solutions Koton

“We picked Portainer over OpenShift because it was really easy to set up and use. It contains all the features we need and few that we don’t. The GUI is intuitive and the team has found it easy to integrate into their workflows. Compared to other products in the market, Portainer represents great value for money, particularly given the quality of support we’ve received.” Read more

“We tried making Rancher work, but we found it was too complex. We needed to find something simpler that we could run with quickly without having to go up a steep learning curve. Portainer suited us well, it’s not overly complex and we could get Portainer up and running ourselves.” Read more
Travis WorthSystems Engineer
"Portainer just works. It does what Docker does best and uses the same KISS principle I grew up on. Just keep it simple. Portainer has been far and away a better product (than Mirantis) in my opinion. Simply based off the deployment alone, it’s far more straight forward, and there’s nothing deployed that isn’t needed."

Portainer allows us to manage all our Docker containers and Swarm orchestration. It has proven to be a robust, light and easy to use product."
