Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Since Rancher is developing K3s to run at the edge and at scale, we had to change our assumptions about managing these clusters. A key assumption in a data center is that you have stable network connections. But this assumption is not true at the edge. In some cases, you may have spotty cellular service, or limited connectivity windows during the day.

To address this, Rancher Labs has been working on a key piece of technology called the System Upgrade Controller: in which an upgrade can be kicked off remotely and managed locally.
Join this meetup to take a technical deep dive of the new System Upgrade Controller. We will:
