Hotpot Self-Hosted Containers

To meet the diverse requirements of organizations small and large, Hotpot exposes graphic editing and AI functionality via two API options: (1) traditional SaaS and (2) self-hosted container. The AI products offered via our API include AI Background Remover, AI Image Generator, AI Picture Colorizer, and others. See the full list.

For convenience, both options utilize the same API specification. This means the same code written for the SaaS API works against the self-hosted container API. The only difference is changing the hostname from our API server to yours.

This makes for a seamless transition between SaaS and self-hosted integrations.

Target User

Self-hosted containers are designed for large enterprises and organizations who require maximize data control and privacy. With self-hosted containers, it becomes possible to create an air-gapped architecture featuring Hotpot functionality, guaranteeing that company data never touches a vendor's system or is exposed to the outside world.

Fortune 500 companies and comparable organizations tend to prefer self-hosted containers.

Because of the price and commmitment, we do not recommend self-hosted containers for startups or small organizations.


The benefits of self-hosted containers are:

  • Maximum data privacy
  • Maximum data control
  • Maximum architecture control and customization
  • Maximum continuity assurance


The drawbacks of self-hosted containers are:

  • Higher price
  • Longer commitment
  • More maintenance


Self-hosted containers are generally priced by volume, with pricing starting at 2x SaaS offerings. Self-hosted containers also require an annual commitment and upfront payment.

For high-volume applications, we can offer a flat annual license modeled after traditional enterprise software.

Support fees are 15%-20% of the annual license fee.


We build and deliver self-hosted containers with the latest Docker technology.
