What is Mirantis Container Runtime (MCR)?

Mirantis Container Runtime (formerly Docker Engine – Enterprise) is the secure, industry-standard container engine designed to run containers on Linux or Windows, powering mission critical applications at the world’s leading organizations. MCR will be of particular interest to enterprises running Docker Swarm, and enterprises running Kubernetes using the familiar Docker CLI for container management with a fully-supported CRI compliant container runtime.

MCR is designed for security, supporting validated FIPS 140-2 FEDRAMP-compliant encryption. It supports execution prevention for cryptographically-unsigned or improperly-signed containers, and is integrated closely with Mirantis Secure Registry to support image signing as part of a secure software supply chain.
