If you’re headed to Pasadena, California this weekend for Scale15x, come see us! We’re excited to be presenting, and our talks are focused on practical knowledge for running containers and Kubernetes in production. While Rancher makes it easy to deploy and manage containers and Kubernetes, building that ease of use has required specific expertise and disciplined thought on how teams are incorporating them into their projects today. We’re headed to Scale to share what we’ve learned, and to get feedback from you.
For those unfamiliar with the conference, the Southern California Linux Expo, now in its fifteenth year, is one of the largest gatherings of open source software and Linux users in the United States. Since its inception, it’s grown to encompass four days of amazing technical and community talks, stretched over a dozen tracks. Topics at the conference now go way beyond Linux, and its content now includes security, storage, and containers and virtualization.
We’re winding down for the year, but you’ll still be able to check out Rancher in a few places, live and in real-time. We always look forward to meeting users whenever we can, and hearing from you only helps make us better.
Dec 14, Online Meetup: Deep Dive on Rancher 1.2 This month, we shipped the latest version of Rancher, which brings in a massive set of improvements. See the newest support for container storage and networking, and how we wrap them into templates for container-ready environments.
Dec 20, Lyon, FR: Introduction to Rancher. Rachid Zarouali will be providing an introduction to the Rancher container management platform at the Lyon Docker meetup, along with a short overview of adjacent technologies like Prometheus and Grafana.
In less than a week, over 24,000 developers, sysadmins, and engineers will arrive in Las Vegas to attend AWS re:Invent (Nov. 28 – Dec 2). If you’re headed to the conference, we look forward to seeing you there! We’ll be onsite previewing enhancements included in our upcoming Rancher v1.2 release:
Support for the latest versions of Kubernetes and Docker: As we’ve previously mentioned, we’re committed to supporting multiple container orchestration frameworks, and we’re eager to show off our latest support for Docker Native Orchestration and Kubernetes.
Better load balancing for AWS: We recently completed additional work on the external load balancer for AWS, which is also available via Rancher catalog.
An update to our storage and networking services: While we’ve covered some changes to how we handle container networking and storage in our prior meetups, we’ve built more improvements to show off since then.
Come say hello and check out the newest features! The Rancher team will be at booth #110, with great swag and prizes, and we’re always excited to meet our users and community in person.
