KONTAIN

Secure. Fast. Small. Choose Three.

33 For all their virtues, containers aren’t nearly as scalable, secure, and efficient as they could–and should–be.

34 

35 Containers are

36        Bloated artifacts that are wasteful and present fat attack surfaces.

37        Run on shared kernels that don’t isolate as strongly as VMs.

38        Sluggish at startup, forcing us and our container orchestrators to start them before they are truly needed.

39 # So we invented the kontainer.      

40 

41 It’s like a regular container – compatible with Docker and Kubernetes, built from your unmodified code, and debuggable from your IDE – yet has some special features,

42 # which is why we spell it with a “k“.

43 

44 Kontainers   

45        Start incredibly fast: Hundreds, even thousands, of times faster than a container.  

46        Are isolated in their own private, small attack surface virtual machine.

47        Can scale from zero to many to zero on a lot less hardware so your ops team, your CFO, and your CEO will love you

WHY KONTAIN?

 

DELIVER FASTER APPLICATIONS

Cold boot in as little as 4ms means your operating infrastructure is efficient

CONTAINERS EXACTLY WHEN YOU NEED THEM

Because Kontain is so fast, you can spin up containers on demand, reducing costs and complexity

up to 50% reduced opEx

Applications designed to benefit from extreme scale up/down can run on a lot less hardware

 

~

better security and less stress

Each container runs in a tiny, isolated VM – Smaller attack surface, stronger boundaries

FRICTIONLESS DEPLOYMENT

NO CODE CHANGES

Who wants a new container that’s incompatible with existing containers? Nobody. That’s why we designed for OCI and CRI compatibility.  And are you interested in being limited to certain programming languages, having to modify your source, or relying on non-standard libraries?  Neither are we. 

You build and run kontainers with the tools, processes, and languages you already know and love.
