As part of Rancher 2.5, we are excited to introduce a new, simpler way to install Rancher called RancherD. This is a single binary you can launch on a host to bring up a Kubernetes cluster bundled with a deployment of Rancher itself. This means you just have one thing to manage: RancherD. Configuration and upgrading are no longer two-step processes where you first have to deal with the underlying Kubernetes cluster and then deal with the Rancher deployment.
