Why Portainer?

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

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.
