Rancher is a complete, open source platform for deploying and managing containers in production. It includes commercially-supported distributions of Kubernetes, Mesos, and Docker Swarm, making it easy to run containerized applications on any infrastructure.
So very impressed with @Rancher_Labs - Rancher is an incredible system, and SO easy to use even at entry level. I've tried them all..— Cliff Rowley (@cliffrowley) January 6, 2017
Giving an in-house training on Docker, and Continuous Deployment using Gitlab CI and Rancher today; I just love this tech :)— Mike van Riel (@mvriel) January 6, 2017
Every time I revisit @Rancher_Labs, I ❤ their stuff more. My❤goes to all nu tech but damn...close to 'endorsing'. Try it!— Xuxo Garcia (@GarciaXuxo) January 4, 2017
@Rancher_Labs Loving Rancher v1.2.1! Finally have a quick Kubernetes clustered environment for deploys ^_^— Reboot Services (@reboot_nl) December 20, 2016
Super smooth upgrade to v1.2.1. Really appreciate the effort that went into this release. Esp excited for LB v2. Thanks @Rancher_Labs!— Blair MacNeil (@macneib) December 19, 2016
I really like @Rancher_Labs container management solution, it makes it so easy to work with Docker. Takes minutes to get up and running.— Theo Bohnen (@tbohnenJnr) December 13, 2016
Rancher has to be one of the best FOSS projects I've used in ages. Utterly amazing - great job @Rancher_Labs!— Samuel Reed (@STRML_) November 22, 2016
An all-in-one platform that delights users.
From the ground up, Rancher was designed to solve all of the critical challenges necessary to run all of your applications in containers. Rancher provides a full set of infrastructure services for containers, including networking, storage services, host management, load balancing and more. All of these services work across any infrastructure, and make it simple to reliably deploy and manage applications.
Now available in fabulous Kubernetes, Mesos, and Swarm flavors.
Scheduling is at the heart of container management. With Rancher 1.0 we’ve brought together three of the most popular container scheduling tools into a single platform. Users can now choose between Kubernetes, Mesos, and Swarm when they deploy environments. Rancher automatically stands up the cluster, enforces access control policies, and provides a complete UI for managing the cluster.
Happier Devs. Happier Ops.
DevOps teams are often the first group that implement Rancher within an organization. Rancher plays a critical role in the software development pipeline, working with CI/CD tools to automate all aspects of software deployments into test, staging and production environments. Ops teams love the visibility Rancher provides into hosts, containers, networking and storage. Making it simple to troubleshoot issues and deliver reliable deployments.
An App Catalog You’ll Actually Use
Enterprise application catalogs are almost always awful. Templates rarely work, apps are out of date, and god forbid you ever want to upgrade. So when we decided to build an app catalog in Rancher, we rethought the entire experience from the ground up. Rancher’s app catalog stores app templates in native Docker Compose, Mesos, or Kubernetes files, and keeps them in a central Git repo. Catalogs can be private or public, and they allow users to configure exactly how they want their services deployed, and when they want them to upgrade.
Enterprise Ready? Check.
As an open-source platform, Rancher is popular with companies of all sizes. However, our largest users typically have a long list of requirements they need to make sure Rancher supports in order to satisfy auditors and security teams. We’ve made sure Rancher supports all of these, including role-based access control, integration with LDAP and Active Directories, detailed audit logs, high-availability management servers, encrypted networking, and of course the option to purchase enterprise-grade 24x7x365 support.
This hands-on guidebook provides a detailed overview of how to integrate containers into your build, test and deployment processes to dramatically improve software delivery and operations.
