October 27, 2017

One of the hallmark features of Rancher 2.0 is its ability to consume Kubernetes clusters from anywhere. In this post, I’m going to walk you through using the popular kops tool to create and manage Kubernetes clusters on AWS and then bring them under Rancher 2.0 management. This walkthrough will help you create a non-HA Kubernetes cluster, though kops does support HA configurations. With this new cluster, we will run the Rancher 2.0 tech preview in a pod with a persistent volume claim. Read more

Rancher 2.0 First Impressions

September 28, 2017

If you’ve followed the container space recently, you’ve likely seen the influx of Kubernetes-related technologies being announced. So, when another one comes along, it’s easy to be less than excited about it. However, in the case of Rancher’s recent product announcement, it’s well worth your time. The engineering team at Rancher Labs has been working on some new ideas that I think will have a real influence on the way we all think about Kubernetes (K8s). Here are the top three aspects that interest me. Read more
