What is CI/CD?

What is CI/CD?

The demands of modern software development combined with complexities of deploying to varied infrastructure can make creating applications a tedious process. As applications grow in size and scope, and development teams become more distributed and diverse, the overall process required to produce and release software quickly and consistently becomes more difficult. To address these issues, teams began exploring new strategies to automate their build, test, and release processes to help deploy new changes to production faster. Read More…

Using JFrog Artifactory as Docker Image Repository

Using JFrog Artifactory as Docker Image Repository

This article is a continuation of Deploying JFrog Artifactory with Rancher. In this chapter we’ll demonstrate how to use JFrog Artifactory as a private repository for your own Docker images. NOTE: This feature of JFrog Artifactory requires a license, but you can get a 30-day trial and use it to follow along. Prepare GCP for the Deployment If you plan to use Artifactory as a repository for Docker outside of your local network, you’ll need a public IP address. Read More…

Forrester identifies Rancher as a Leader in Enterprise Container Management.

Forrester identifies Rancher as a Leader in Enterprise Container Management.

Last week we got some exciting news here at Rancher, when the analyst firm Forrester published a report that identified Rancher as in its “leaders” category for Enterprise Container Management Software. Rancher was identified as a leader along with Docker Enterprise Edition and RedHat OpenShift, and was specifically called out for excelling in providing multi-cluster Kubernetes management. The analysts ranked Docker EE first giving it high marks for supporting both Swarm and Kubernetes and providing leadership for the Docker open source community, and scored OpenShift highly for how well it integrates with the RedHat ecosystem of products, and for providing an integrated developer experience.

Challenges and Solutions for Scaling Kubernetes in the Hybrid Cloud

Challenges and Solutions for Scaling Kubernetes in the Hybrid Cloud

Introduction Let’s assume you’re in business online: you have your own datacenter and a private cloud running your website. You’ll have a number of servers deployed to run applications and store their data. The overall website traffic in this scenario is pretty constant, yet there are times where you expect traffic growth. How do you handle all this growth in traffic? The first thing that comes to mind is that you need to be able to scale some of your applications in order to cope with the traffic increase. Read More…

The Unexpected Kubernetes: Part 2: Volume and Many Ways of Persisting Data

Recap Last time we talked about PV, PVC, Storage Class and Provisioner. To quickly recap: Originally PV was designed to be a piece of storage pre-allocated by administrator. Though after the introduction of Storage Class and Provisioner, users are able to dynamically provision PVs now. PVC is a request for a PV. When used with Storage Class, it will trigger the dynamic provisioning of a matching PV. Read More…

Kubernetes versus Docker: What's the difference?

Docker vs Kubernetes: The Journey from Docker to Kubernetes The need to deploy applications from one computing environment to another quickly, easily, and reliably has become a critical part of enterprise’s business requirements and DevOps team’s daily workflow. It’s unsurprising then, that container technologies, which make application deployment and management easier for teams of all sizes, have risen dramatically in recent years. At the same time, however, virtual machines (VM) as computing resources have reached their peak use in virtualized data centers. Read More…

Introduction to Container Security

Containers are still a relatively new technology, but they have already had a massive impact on software development and delivery. Companies all around the world are starting to migrate towards microservices, and containers enable developers to quickly spin up services with minimal effort. In the past it took a fair amount of time to download, install, and configure software, but now you can take advantage of solutions that have already been packaged up for you and only require a single command to run.
