Mirantis Kubernetes Engine (MKE), Mirantis Secure Registry (MSR), and Mirantis Container Runtime (MCR) offer a standards-based container platform for development and delivery of modern applications. MKE, MSR, and MCR are designed for application developers and IT teams who build, share, and run business-critical applications at scale in production. MKE, MSR, and MCR provides a consistent and secure end-to-end application pipeline, choice of tools and languages, and globally consistent Kubernetes environments that run in any cloud.

MKE enables deploying highly available workloads using either the Docker Kubernetes Service or Docker Swarm. You can join thousands of physical or virtual machines together to create a cluster, allowing you to deploy your applications at scale and to manage your clusters from a centralized place.

MKE automates many of the tasks that orchestration requires, like provisioning pods, containers, and cluster resources. Self-healing components ensure that MKE clusters remain highly available.
