More than Container

With APPUiO you can choose between the two Kubernetes distributions Red Hat OpenShift and Rancher. These help you bring your applications into the cloud, increase productivity and promote innovation.

APPUiO offers three different ways to support you in building and/or operating a container platform. Benefit from the long experience of our specialists to integrate either OpenShift or Rancher with all its add-ons and services into your business.


One-Stop Solution

We’re accompanying our customers all along the value creation chain of both their platform and application – from planning via installation to operations. Additionally, we’re glad to assist you with our long-standing experience with container technologies. All collaboration is organized modular and our services can be procured individually or bundled. We’re not only providing help with architectures, setup and operations, but also offer 3rd-Level-support, professional training for both operating and monitoring OpenShift, Rancher and other container solutions as well as consulting all around the topics of “Moving Apps to the Cloud”, “DevOps-Automation” and much more.



Our Community is the centrepiece. APPUiO features a community chat to exchange ideas with like-minded engineers and with the APPUiO-team. APPUiO is entirely built on Open Source-components. We assume the same kind of openness by providing our documentation and code to the community. Together, Open Sourced software, open standards and openly available documentation guarantee supplier-independence to the highest possible extent and protect you from vendor lock-in. Come join and become part of our community!



We’re continually improving APPUiO and developing additional features. These extensions are provided to all our customers as Add-Ons and help with integration. Currently, the following Add-Ons are available:

    • Backup, Monitoring and Logging of Applications
    • Secure Docker Builds (Multi Stage Support)
    • TCP Traffic
    • Managed Services (3Scale, WAF, DB and more)
    • CI/CD & application operation
    • Application Data Backup with K8up


APPUiO offers two well-established Kubernetes distributions which optimally cover different requirements for a container orchestration platform. In addition to the well-known Kubernetes features, both distributions offer additional functions and tools, which have been enhanced by the integration and combination of cloud-native products. Through a careful evaluation, APPUiO will help you to decide which of the Kubernetes distributions is right for you.

  • OpenShift


    The focus of Red Hat OpenShift is on a full-stack Kubernetes platform. The platform provides end-to-end enterprise support from the operating system to the container platform to middleware applications. The OpenShift ecosystem already includes many tools to that help you with software development.

  • Rancher


    The focus of Rancher is to simplify the operation of Kubernetes on any infrastructure, both on-premises and cloud platforms. For this purpose Rancher Labs has developed the Rancher Kubernetes Engine (RKE), a CNCF-certified Kubernetes distribution. Rancher provides a central web and API-based multi-cluster management platform.


With APPUiO, you’re creating new environments at the push of a button. There’s a multitude of Technologies and Platforms available right “out of the Box”. Docker, the foundation on which APPUiO is built, brings along a whole ecosystem of additional runtime environments and frameworks.

  • Kubernetes


    On APPUiO, you orchestrate and manage your containers with Kubernetes by Google. You define how many of your application instances should run in parallel and Kubernetes then takes care of scaling, load balancing and stability.

  • Docker


    Docker is the open platform for developers, sysadmins and their applications. With APPUiO, simply select the Docker-image based on your needs and the technology you want to use. OpenShift automatically creates an updated Docker-container after every build, and can even deploy it on your behalf.
