Converged Container and Virtual Machine Hypervisor

Triton SmartOS combines the capabilities you get from a lightweight container OS, optimized to deliver containers, with the robust security, networking and storage capabilities you’ve come to expect and depend on from a hardware hypervisor.

Key Features of SmartOS:
  • Secure containers: full isolation per container in a multi-tenant environment
  • Built-in networking: each Triton container has its own unique IP address
  • Built-in storage: secure, isolated, resizable filesystems for each container
  • Bare metal performance: the speed of bare metal performance + the flexibility of virtualization
Triton SmartOS is the engine that powers the Triton Compute Service and Triton DataCenter.
