Portainer is a lightweight management UI which allows you to easily manage your different Docker environments (Docker hosts or Swarm clusters).
Portainer is meant to be as simple to deploy as it is to use. It consists of a single container that can run on any Docker engine (can be deployed as Linux container or a Windows native container).
Portainer allows you to manage your Docker containers, images, volumes, networks and more ! It is compatible with the standalone Docker engine and with Docker Swarm mode.
You can try out the public demo instance: http://demo.portainer.io/ (login with the username admin and the password tryportainer).
Please note that the public demo cluster is reset every 15min.
Alternatively, you can deploy a copy of the demo stack inside a play-with-docker (PWD) playground:
- Browse PWD/?stack=portainer-demo/play-with-docker/docker-stack.yml
- Sign in with your Docker ID
- Follow these steps.
Unlike the public demo, the playground sessions are deleted after 4 hours. Apart from that, all the settings are same, including default credentials.

Portainer has full support for the following Docker versions:
- Docker 1.10 to the latest version
- Standalone Docker Swarm >= 1.2.3 (NOTE: Use of Standalone Docker Swarm is being discouraged since the introduction of built-in Swarm Mode in Docker. While older versions of Portainer had support for Standalone Docker Swarm, Portainer 1.17.0 and newer do not support it. However, the built-in Swarm Mode of Docker is fully supported.)
Partial support for the following Docker versions (some features may not be available):
- Docker 1.9
