One of the great benefits of the Rancher container management platform is that it runs on any infrastructure. While it’s possible to add any Linux machine as a host using our custom setup option, using one of the machine drivers in Rancher makes it especially easy to add and manage your infrastructure. Today, we’re pleased to have a new machine driver available in Rancher, from our friends at cloud.ca. cloud.ca is a regional cloud IaaS for Canadian or foreign businesses requiring that all or some of their data remain in Canada, for reasons of compliance, performance, privacy or cost. The platform works as a standalone IaaS and can be combined with hybrid or multi-cloud services, allowing a mix of private cloud and other public cloud infrastructures such as Amazon Web Services. Having the cloud.ca driver available within Rancher makes it that much easier for our collective users to focus on building and running their applications, while minding data compliance requirements. To access the cloud.ca machine driver, navigate to the \“Add Hosts\” screen within Rancher, select \“Manage available machine drivers\“. Click the arrow to activate the driver; it’ll be easily available for subsequent deployments.

If you’re headed to Devops Days Toronto (May 25-26) as well, we encourage you to visit the cloud.ca booth, where you can see a demo in person! And as always, we’re happy to hear from members of our community on how they’re using Rancher. Reach out to us any time on our forums, or on Twitter @Rancher_Labs!
