Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
we hosted an online meetup that provided a detailed overview of how to
automate the deployment and upgrade of complex production application
stacks using Rancher and Docker. We used Ampache, an open-source music
streaming platform, to demonstrate how to deploy a scalable, distributed
service using Rancher. As always, Rancher co-founders Darren Shepherd
and Shannon Williams answered dozens and dozens of questions, and demoed
nearly constantly over more than two hours to hundreds of attendees.
Specifically, over the course of the meetup we explained how to: • Use
Docker Compose to define and manage apps. • Leverage container
scheduling, container metadata and service discovery • Manage
environment variables, config files, and dynamic reloading • Upgrade
applications using Rolling and blue/green approaches We’ve made a
recording of the meetup available below. If you’re interested in
