Overall Satisfaction with Portainer

We provide applications to end users, which traditionally have been on-premise on virtual servers. We are being asked to provide these applications as containers and we use Portainer to demonstrate this and also recommend Portainer for both Docker and Kubernetes environments. Customers can easily follow what's going on with applications and access logs using Portainer, which makes their transitions quicker and easier than having to learn native commands. Portainer provides the perfect framework for managing containers, their state, log information, and secure access to the command line of a running container.
  • Container observability
  • Access to logs and state information
  • Secure container command line access
  • Network and Storage information
  • Copy files from/to a running container
  • Extending the GUI (by the user) to incorporate other management tools
  • Swagger UI for the REST API
  • Ease of deployment
  • Intuitive interface
  • High level of information about your containerized environment
  • Reduced sales cycle for container migration projects
  • Increased numbers of opportunities through application demonstrations
  • Reduced cost of training technical staff in new technologies
Portainer is more intuitive than Rancher, therefore the time to value is greatly reduced. Rancher has some good features but nothing over and above Portainer. The rate of development in Portainer is far greater than in Rancher and further extendability will only widen this gap. The Portainer community is also much broader than Rancher, which means answers to questions are more readily available.

Portainer is ideal for traditional systems administrators who need to manage containers, either on-premise or on the cloud. Its GUI is intuitive and easily navigated to show, control and manage your containerized infrastructure. Portainer can quickly be deployed by both the manager and the agents to manage multiple environments from a single pane of glass. It accelerates time to value for containerized environments, such as Kubernetes, as you don't need to know the in-depth commands and flags to manage this environment.
