Note: The intent of these guides is to quickly launch a sandbox that you can use to evaluate Rancher. These guides are not intended for production environments. For comprehensive setup instructions, see Installation.

Howdy buckaroos! Use this section of the docs to jump start your deployment and testing of Rancher 2.x! It contains instructions for a simple Rancher setup and some common use cases. We plan on adding more content to this section in the future.

We have Quick Start Guides for:

  • Deploying Rancher Server: Get started running Rancher using the method most convenient for you.

  • Deploying Workloads: Deploy a simple workload and expose it, letting you access it from outside the cluster.

  • Using the CLI: Use kubectl or Rancher command line interface (CLI) to interact with your Rancher instance.
