MCR Overview

MCR OverviewΒΆ

Mirantis Container Runtime (MCR) enables you to power your business-critical applications with the industry-leading enterprise container engine. You can run containers on any platform with a fully supported and highly secure container runtime. MCR provides the core functionality and security compliance needed to enable your container orchestration solution of choice with certified proven support for both Kubernetes and Swarm. The most common use cases include:

Container orchestration solution

Organisations often have unique container orchestration requirements and may choose to utilise alternative systems to manage their containers. MCR provides freedom to select the best orchestration solution for your needs whilst still ensuring you have a secure, trusted, and supported container runtime to run your mission-critical workloads.

Secure and validated containers

The challenges in ensuring that the software supply chain is secure does not stop at the container orchestration solution. The key part of securing your container solution is ensuring that only validated and trusted containers can be deployed and run. MCR combined with Mirantis Secure Registry (MSR) gives you the ability to validate and sign your container images to ensure that only approved images can be run in your environment.

Secure validated encryption

Regulated industries need to meet federal regulations to ensure that appropriate levels of encryption are enabled. MCR provides FIPS 140-2 Validated cryptography ensuring that you meet the highest standards necessary to comply with the federal requirements.

Multiple operating systems and infrastructures

With the drive towards multi-cloud and hybrid cloud, computing organisations need to support multiple operating systems on multiple platforms. MCR is certified to run on multiple operating systems, including CentOS, RHEL, Ubuntu, and Windows, for consistent runtime regardless of the platform.
