Kontena is a developer friendly container platform with all batteries included that is extremely easy to use and works for everybody, on any cloud.
With Kontena developers can leverage multiple cloud providers into one secure virtual environment, which means no-lock in, and a greater likelihood that others can use our work in their environment, whatever that may be."
We are a fairly small agency but with very large customers such as the Danish Government. It is critical for us that platforms and tools we put in place don't require a lot of tuning, customizing and integrating, and also need to be easy and cost efficient to maintain over a longer period. We checked out several container management platforms and chose Kontena as it is a tightly integrated, all-inclusive platform which is extremely easy to set-up and run, offering us the best total cost of ownership."
Kontena provides developers with an out-of-the-box solution that gives them time to focus on what really matters – their own software and applications. Of course, what we love about the solution is that it works on bare metal. For anyone looking to run container-based applications in production, Kontena has everything needed in a single integrated, tested and proven solution."
We're excited to see Kontena driving innovation in the container platform technology by accelerating projects and taking our container-based release automation to next level."
Kontena is truly startup friendly with the right balance between best conventions and the ability to customize. Working together with the amazingly responsive Kontena core team has been awesome."
I think Kontena is the promising candidate in the ecosystem of container orchestrators. I really love what the Kontena team has built; especially it's open source ecosystem and community."
The Leonidas Platform is an essential part of our business, to be able to confidently operate our own products and projects. Kontena is a very integral aspect of making this happen, as our platform requires a highly integrated environment including loadbalancing and networking, all of which Kontena offers in one, easy-to-use package."
