[We just came back from DockerCon 2016, the biggest and most exciting DockerCon yet. Rancher had a large and well-trafficked presence there - our developers even skipped attending breakout sessions in favor of staffing the booth, just to talk with all the people who were interested in Rancher. In only two days, over a thousand people stopped by to talk to us!] Rancher Labs at

[Docker-Native Orchestration]

[Without a doubt, the biggest news out of DockerCon this year is the new built-in container orchestration capabilities in the upcoming Docker 1.12 release. With this capability, developers can now create a Swarm cluster with a simple command and will be able to deploy, manage, and scale services from application templates. ] Docker Swarm

[Multi-Framework Support]

[At Rancher Labs, we are committed to supporting multiple container orchestration frameworks. Modern DevOps practices encourage individual teams to have their choice of tools and frameworks, and as a result, large enterprise organizations often find it necessary to support multiple container orchestration engines. Goldman Sachs, for example, ][plans to use both Swarm and Kubernetes in their quest to migrate 90% of computing to containers][.] [Rancher is the only container management platform on the market today capable of supporting all leading container orchestration frameworks: Swarm, Kubernetes, and Mesos. ] Orchestration frameworks in

[Docker-Native Orchestration Support Coming Soon in Rancher]

[We are very excited about the latest Docker-native container orchestration capabilities built into Docker 1.12 and the engineering team has already begun work to integrate these capabilities into Rancher. We expect a preview version of this integration in early July and can’t wait to show you what we’re doing to bring these amazing new capabilities to Rancher users. Stay tuned!]
