A portal is a web-based interface that allows users to access and manage their containers or cloud resources.

For example, a container portal might allow users to deploy and scale containerized applications, view the status and logs of their containers, and manage the resources (such as CPU and memory) allocated to their containers.

A cloud portal, on the other hand, might allow users to create and manage virtual machines, storage resources, and networking configurations within a cloud infrastructure. It might also provide tools for monitoring and billing, as well as integration with other cloud services.

Overall, a portal is a way for users to interact with and manage their containers or cloud resources through a user-friendly interface, rather than having to use command-line tools or APIs directly.
