Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Web Services (AWS) is one of the most popular clouds for running Docker
workloads, and we’ve seen more and more users deploy Rancher in
conjunction with multiple AWS services to deliver a resilient production
grade service. In our December online meetup, we discussed best
practices for running applications using Docker on AWS with Rancher.
We’ll demosntrate how to deploy, scale and manage deployments while
using underlying AWS features, such as EBS, ELB, Route53, RDS, and more.
During the meetup Darren Shepherd demonstrated: • Deploying Rancher
using RDS, ELB and Route53 • Deploy capacity in AWS with Docker Machine
• Deploying persistent applications using NFS storage • Using
autoscaling groups with Rancher • Leveraging ELB and Route53 for load
balancing. • Dynamically utilizing spot instances to reduce costs We
also had a demo from Spotinst, on how to automate management of Spot
Instances. You can view a recording of the entire meetup below, or
