Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
This article analyzes the recent CNCF article, '9 Kubernetes Security Best Practices Everyone Must Follow' and discusses how Rancher, RKE, and RancherOS satisfy these by default. I also discuss the Rancher Hardening Guide, which covers 101 more security changes that will secure your Kubernetes clusters.
Having completed a series of twelve Lighthouse Roadshow events across Europe and North America in six months, Tom Callway reflects on the rapid growth of the Kubernetes ecosystem, the importance of community and personal development.
Sheng Liang, CEO of Rancher Labs, shares his thoughts about the latest VMWare announcements: Tanzu and Project Pacific, and on the future of Kubernetes in the market.
Rancher 2.3 Preview 2 dropped today, with preview support for Istio.
Rancher 2.3 Preview 1 dropped today, with preview support for Windows Containers in Kubernetes 1.14.
Rancher's newest open source project, Submariner, creates a single network across all Kubernetes clusters running on premise or in the cloud.
The Rancher community is 30,000+ strong and growing fast! In order to continue growing and nurturing our vibrant open source community, we’ve created the Trusted Ranch Hand Program. Learn more.
Today we launched a new open source project called k3OS. K3OS is a Linux distro built for the sole purpose of running Kubernetes clusters. Read more.
Together, Rancher and Spotinst Ocean offer simple, cost-effective management of Kubernetes clusters in the cloud while eliminating the overhead of planning and managing the underlying infrastructure for your applications.
K3s and Traefik partner to speed up cloud native applications deployment.
Support for relational databases is a growing focus for Kubernetes users, and the release of Windows Server 2019 is expanding options for .NET applications and SQL Server. SQL Server workloads, however, often rely on Active Directory and Windows Auth, and storage arrays, which will not be supported by SQL Server containers on Windows Server 2019. Fortunately, a new Rancher Labs partner, Windocks, offers new options for SQL Server on Kubernetes and Rancher.
Today we announced releases v2.1.6 and v2.0.11 to address two security vulnerabilities recently discovered in Rancher. The first vulnerability allows users in the Default project of a cluster to escalate privileges to that of a cluster admin through a service account. The second vulnerability allows members to have continued access to create, update, read, and delete namespaces in a project after they have been removed from it. You can view the official CVEs here CVE-2018-20321 and here CVE-2019-6287.
Security is one of the most talked-about topics for Kubernetes users. Google “Kubernetes security” and you’ll find a huge number of articles, blogs and more. The reason is simple: you need to align your container and Kubernetes security with your organization’s existing security profile.
Kubernetes has some strong security best practices for your cluster—authentication and authorization, encryption in secrets and objects in the etcd database—to name a few. However, you need to be aware of other risks, such as privilege escalation and secrets obtained.
The k3s project was started by Darren Shepherd, Chief Architect at Rancher 7 months ago and has already become one of the most popular Kubernetes options on the CNCF Landscape by number of GitHub stars.
To put this into context, k3s is more popular than OpenShift by IBM/Red Hat and only Rancher Kubernetes itself is more popular than k3s. Now stars are indicative of interest and popularity only and that should be noted.
This article by Rancher Head of Product Management describes the difference between Kubernetes scale up and scale out, and the need for multi-cluster applications solutions to handle challenges of Kubernetes scaling in production.
The release of k3s has been met with enthusiasm by the Kubernetes community. Find out why k3s has become so popular so quickly and what teams are already doing with k3s one week after its launch.
Rancher's multi-cluster applications are the easiest way to add reliability to applications running in multiple Kubernetes clusters.
My name is Jason van Brackel and I'm Rancher Labs' new Director of Community. In this post, I'd like to introduce myself and outline my vision of the community we can shape together.
