Deckhouse Platform CE

What is it?

Community Edition (CE) is the perfect choice to test out Deckhouse Platform in action and/or to deploy the platform if you currently don’t need professional support from the vendor.

To help you decide whether Deckhouse Platform CE will meet your current expectations, we’ve put together this CE vs. EE comparison table.

Deckhouse Platform CE is freely available via the project’s main GitHub repository. The Getting started instructions will guide you through the initial configuration & installation process.
