Full lifecycle management for hosted Kubernetes clusters
We have partnered with Amazon, Microsoft, and Google to help Kubernetes users centralize their workflows for hosted clusters on EKS, AKS, and GKE within Rancher. Reducing the need to implement and operate across multiple platforms and environments.
In 2020 our Rancher platform experienced a 92% increase in the number of projects onboarded – in 2021 we’re seeing the same high level of engagement. Rancher 2.6 will further stoke demand with the addition of AKS and EKS support while, at the same time, offering our operations team a single pane of glass through which to support this growing demand
