Triton Compute Service allows you to securely deploy and operate containers with bare metal speed on the world's only container-native public cloud, powered by Triton. Triton also supports high performance hardware virtual machines that can be used to run a broad range of operating systems and applications.

Performance and scale

Triton delivers bare metal performance with the elasticity of virtual machines. By eliminating layers of virtualization and running containers directly on bare metal, applications enjoy the highest possible performance. And, because you are running on OS virtualized containers, you can easily scale your applications and infrastructure up and down.

Simple management

Docker-native tools make deploying on Triton as easy as running Docker on your laptop. There is no special software to install or configure. Leverage container-native Linux on Triton to extend the benefits of containerization to legacy applications and stateful services.


Triton provides secure isolation for each container, leveraging Zones, a technology that acts as an additional, "steel-wall" that prevents neighboring tenants from attacking other occupants. Patented resource protections insulate containers from noisy neighbors and insure that each container gets its fair share of I/O.

Software defined networking

Triton's built-in networking offers each container one or more network interfaces, so each container has a full IP stack and is a full peer on the network, making network management easy.

Integrated debugging, logging and auditing

Triton provides container-level visibility with real-time introspection and post-mortem debugging tools. For Docker containers Triton provides integrated logging and auditing capabilities.

Dynamic resource usage

Bare metal servers and VMs are rigid units that don't dynamically scale. Triton infrastructure containers can be dynamically resized, in place - which means zero down-time.
