Kontena Cloud Platform

Deploy, manage, and scale containerized applications with ease.

Fully Managed Environment for Containers

Over the past few years, we have seen hundreds of organizations running production workloads using our open source project which has become by far the most developer friendly container orchestrator on the market.

Kontena Cloud Platform is a fully managed environment for running containers at scale, powered by Kontena’s open source technology. It brings together the latest innovations in developer productivity, cloud automation, and open source to accelerate your time to market.

No Lock-In, Democratize Infrastructure

The Kontena Cloud Platform is abstracting all available compute resources and data volumes as a single unified resource pool, and makes it available for running your containerized workloads. While we recommend using Kontena Cloud Compute for adding compute resources, you can use any infrastructure to power your platform.

Reliable and High Availability Built-In

Kontena engineers monitor your platform and its compute, networking, and storage resources so you don't have to. Add health checks to detect and replace misbehaving applications running on your platform. Use advanced deployment strategies, load balancing and monitoring to achieve highly available services and offer a seamless experience to your users.

Kontena Cloud Compute

Add machines, a.k.a Nodes, with super powers to power your Kontena Cloud Platform.

Power Your Platform With Ease

All Kontena Cloud Platforms require compute resources for running your containerized workloads. While it is possible to provision Nodes from any infrastructure, we recommend using Kontena Cloud Compute. All Nodes provisioned via Kontena Cloud Compute are guaranteed to work smoothly with your platform.

Multiple Node Types and Regions Supported

Kontena Cloud Compute provides multiple Node types. These Nodes may be provisioned to USA or Europe regions to suit your needs. All Nodes will be added to your platform’s unified resource pool, and will be used to power your containerized workloads.

Simple, Scalable Pricing

Kontena Cloud Compute is made available to you with the simple per Node per hour pricing. There are no hidden fees related to networking or disk I/O. With no long term contracts, you can start small and grow with your business.

Kontena Cloud Image Registry

The most developer friendly solution for storing and distributing container images.

Secure, Private and Easy

The Kontena Cloud Image Registry is the most developer friendly solution for storing and distributing container images. It is secure and private by default; only the people in your organization or development team may access the images.

Works With Any Tooling

The Kontena Cloud Image Registry works with standard Docker CLI tools and may be used from any external CI/CD pipelines without hassle. It works with any system capable of processing and handling container images based on OCI image specification.
