Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
This section contains instructions for installing Rancher in development and production environments.
Before installing Rancher, make sure that your nodes fulfill all of the installation requirements.
Single Node Installation
Install Rancher on a single Linux host. Single node installs are recommended for development and test environments, as setup is simple and the server doesn’t have to be readily available for a user base—only the developer or tester.
High Availability Installation
This install scenario creates a new Kubernetes cluster dedicated to running Rancher Server in a high-availability (HA) configuration, which runs Rancher Server on multiple hosts so that it’s always accessible provided that one of your cluster nodes is running. We recommend high-availability installs in production environments, where your user base requires 24⁄7 access to your applications.
