How to switch container runtimes and burst to the cloud

With the Testcontainers desktop app, you can now easily switch between your local container runtimes

Want to give Podman or Rancher a try? With the Testcontainers desktop app, you can now easily switch between your local container runtimes for all your Testcontainers-powered dependencies.

And thanks to Testcontainers Cloud, you can even run them in the cloud on demand. You can test everything on your laptop without worrying about local resources. In fact, no local docker daemon is required at all. Additionally, if you're on an Arm MacBook or a Windows machine, you get to experience lightning-fast performance as your containers run on our x86 architecture, just like in production.
