We built Rancher as a complete, open-source platform for managing containers. By supporting Kubernetes, Mesos, and Docker Swarm, Rancher makes it easy to run any containerized application, on any infrastructure.
After going through a number of Docker orchestration platforms, @Rancher_Labs is still my favorite. It just works!— Stefan Eggenschwiler (@ioguy) August 24, 2016
@Rancher_Labs all through a simple UI. It even uses github auth so I don't have to create annoying keys for every dev.— Nick Humrich (@nhumrich) August 24, 2016
@Rancher_Labs container administration is a piece of cake. I can rollback unhealthy services, check the logs, and even exec into a container— Nick Humrich (@nhumrich) August 24, 2016
@Rancher_Labs sounds fair to me. I've used rancher in prod since before 1.0. I love it so much. The best part of rancher is the friendly UI.— Nick Humrich (@nhumrich) August 24, 2016
A very interesting and promising project: Linux distro that runs the entire OS as docker containers @Rancher_Labs— Filippos (@filipposmastro) August 17, 2016
Shout out to @Rancher_Labs for an excellent product. Just moved our prod and dev environments over. Seamless experience, excellent ui.— Jason Clark (@jclarknet) August 11, 2016
Rancher lives up to my expectations. Easily up & running in a matter of hours. Next, will deploy Kubernetes in it. pic.twitter.com/SdasnMhx8R— Cedric Chee (@cedric_chee) August 9, 2016
The last two days, I was redesigning our internal server structure at work. Rancher + Docker, Now it's epic :)— Jakub Juszczak (@apertureless) August 5, 2016
I cannot recommend @Rancher_Labs more than I do.— Axel Segebrecht (@axelsegebrecht) July 28, 2016
OK, maybe a couple of blog posts... vacation time = writing time :D
I have to say, @Rancher_Labs is my favorite way to deploy Docker containers these days - it's really come a long way! So well done.— LearnCode (@LearnCodeAcad) July 28, 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.
