Recording: Introducing Kubernetes Environments in Rancher – February 2016 Online Meetup

A hands-on guide to deploying applications in Rancher’s new Kubernetes environments  

Over the last few months our team at Rancher Labs has been adding support for Kubernetes natively within Rancher. Our implementation of Kubernetes takes advantage of Rancher’s platform orchestration, simple UI, access control, networking and storage capabilities to deliver simple to deploy Kubernetes clusters for managing applications. In our February meetup we introduced this new support, and discussed how these Kubernetes environments compare with our native Docker environments and help you understand when and how each can be used to power your containers.

Our new support for Kubernetes will be available in Rancher in our next major release in March.

In this recording we demonstrated:

  • Deploying a Kubernetes Cluster within Rancher
  • Launching Kubernetes Pods and Replication Controllers
  • Leveraging Rancher services within Kubernetes
  • Understanding the differences between Kubernetes and native Docker environments
  • Service discovery, scheduling and high availability within Kubernetes
