DataCenter

Container Management Made Easy

Comparison

Container-native from its inception, Triton DataCenter converges container orchestration and cloud orchestration into one simple to deploy and manage solution, while alternative container as a service solutions add complexity and cost by layering container orchestration on top of cloud orchestration.

Key Features of Triton DataCenter

Simple It's easy to run and scale Docker on Triton DataCenter

Docker-native tools make deploying on Triton as easy as running Docker on your laptop. There is no special software to install or configure, and no complex host management is required. Simply let Triton automatically schedule containers across available physical hosts in the data center, or leverage traits to control resource placement yourself.

Efficient Save money by eliminating the need for costly VM hosts

Alternative solutions run on rigid VM host clusters that don't dynamically scale, which forces Ops to over-provision capacity. Triton containers run without VM hosts and can be dynamically resized, in place - which means zero down time and unmatched efficiency. Leverage over 40 built in infrastructure instance packages to tailor isolated CPU, memory and disk resources to your specific needs, then resize infrastructure in-place as requirements change.

Flexible Manage containers and VMs in one place

Triton is the best place to manage containers, but we know that the world is full of virtual machine instances that aren’t going anywhere, so Triton provides a single portal and API for managing both containers and KVM-based virtual machines, for your non-container based workloads. Compose and provision projects or individual instances. Leverage RBAC for security.

Secure Container networking that works the way you want it to work

Decide how you want to connect your containers and what you want to keep separate. Triton DataCenter user-defined networking makes it easy to create private layer 2 and layer 3 networks to connect everything exactly as you want. Automatic, integrated DNS furthers this ease of use, while the integrated, per-instance firewalls make it just as easy to isolate and protect containers on the network.

A Container-Native Stack for Modern Applications and Operations

Increase development velocity while simplifying operations. Triton provides the foundation for a modern application and operations architecture.Optionally leverage Joyent's expertise, software and services to run microservices, Node.js and object storage.

As the original corporate steward of Node.js, we know microservices and how to operate them at scale. Enterprise support for Node.js is included with Triton, but Triton works with any application runtime. You want to run Go or CoreCLR on Triton? No problem. Learn more…

All of your “big data” has to go somewhere. Joyent’s Manta will scale to meet your object storage needs. Because Manta is available as a cloud service and as 100% open source software, you maintain full control over your data. Learn more…

Automate the process of discovery and configuration that’s needed to connect application components in separate containers. By automating these and other operational details, you can build applications that effectively run on autopilot and work with any scheduler. Learn more…

Other solutions layer container orchestration on top of VM clusters from public clouds or private clouds that you pay for and manage separately. Triton converges container and cloud orchestration into one easy solution.

Our secret ingredient. Don’t let VM-based container hosts complicate your operations and slow down your applications. Run your Docker containers and Linux applications securely, on bare metal, with built-in networking and storage. Learn more…
