Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Rancher has quickly become the #1 choice for enterprises looking to run containers and Kubernetes in production. It’s the only product that enables you to deliver Kubernetes-as-a-Service across any infrastructure.
Rancher Labs is now a part of SUSE.
We started Rancher in 2014 to create software that would simplify the lives of teams who were building applications using containers. The market was new, Docker had just been introduced and questions about how to manage, secure and orchestrate containers were pressing and exciting problems to solve.
Within a year we introduced the first version of Rancher, an open-source software platform for teams innovating around containers. By 2016 we had adopted Kubernetes as an orchestrator and had thousands of teams using Rancher to run containers in production.
As our community has grown, we haven’t stopped innovating. Rancher 2.0 became the first enterprise-grade platform for delivering Kubernetes as an enterprise service. Projects like k3s and submariner continue to push the Kubernetes community forward. All along we’ve maintained a commitment to building open-source software that supports users as they innovate everywhere.
At SUSE, our goal is to give our customers the freedom to innovate everywhere. We tirelessly work to offer them possibilities that know no limitations – from the data center, to the cloud, to the edge and beyond.
The skills, creativity and vision of our employees, partners, community, and customers coming together are the key to achieving this. We are driven by the power of many.
There are two reasons why only we can do what we do. First, our independent approach puts the ‘open’ back in open source software, giving customers the agility to tackle innovation challenges today, and the freedom to evolve their strategy and solutions tomorrow.
Second, our ability to deliver both innovation and stability, which guarantees a strong bond of trust between our customers and us. We want to be innovation heroes to our customers, so they can be innovation heroes to theirs.
