Cloud Container Compute

EGI Cloud Container Compute is a complete solution for anyone looking to use containers for applications with ease and at scale. With multiple service options – a fully-managed service where you just have to bring your container images, or a self-managed service with on-demand provisioning of the necessary compute resource – this service offers both ease of use and advanced customisation, as well as unique features that make it ideal for anyone needing a reliable and efficient container platform. Our secure and isolated environment ensures that your containers are protected from external threats and with standard API access, you can easily manage and monitor your containers without any additional overhead. The result is improved performance, ideal for development work.
