Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Kubernetes applications are increasingly making their way to the edge and embedded computing. Storage will quickly follow as the applications that rely on this edge infrastructure become more advanced and naturally carry more state. Longhorn is a cloud native persistent storage technology that has been quickly evolving as stateful applications in Kubernetes increase. An enhancement in its latest version 1.1 is quite applicable to this topic: native ARM64 support.
Longhorn 1.1, an enterprise-grade, cloud native container storage solution and CNCF Sandbox project, is now available. It the first cloud native storage solution designed and built for the edge, with ARM64 support, new self-healing capabilities and increased performance visibility. See how Rancher, SUSE’s Kubernetes management platform, and Longhorn work together to power your Kubernetes deployments on the edge.
Discover k3d, a tool for deploying K3s clusters, and learn how K3s high availability resists nodes degradation. Plus, see which components K3s deploys in a cluster by default.
We created the Fleet Project to provide centralized GitOps-style management of a large number of Kubernetes clusters. A key design goal of Fleet is to be able to manage 1 million geographically distributed clusters. In this blog, I will cover Fleet’s architecture, the method we used to test scale and our findings.
Rancher is cohosting the Computing on the Edge with Kubernetes conference on October 21 with Arm, AWS and Microsoft. We’re bringing together thought leaders and customers to share their knowledge and insight about Kubernetes and the edge. If you’re thinking about the edge (or know you should be) you don’t want to miss this free event.
The growing popularity of Kubernetes has led to challenges in managing complexity in an environment that is conducive to cluster sprawl. Rancher 2.5 simplifies deployment and management with Rancher Continuous Delivery, a new capability that adopts a GitOps approach toward streamlining the process across any infrastructure—private, public, hybrid or multi-cloud environments—by using a Git repository to store and manage application and configuration information automatically, ensuring consistency in deployments while taking a lot of the load off of the customer.
Rancher 2.5 delivers major new capabilities that simplify and enhance the Kubernetes user experience, whether the user is starting with a single, local cluster or managing many clusters across a hybrid cloud infrastructure. Other new capabilities include: GitOps at scale for edge clusters, full lifecycle management for Amazon EKS clusters and security hardening for public sector applications.

Deploy k3OS to the edge and set up a Rancher control plane using Argo Workflows.
We outline an effective approach for the myriad of choices available in the Kubernetes ecosystem to realize the vision of simplified application development and deployment in the cloud, on prem and at the edge.
See how to manage K3s cluster upgrades from the Rancher UI in Rancher 2.4. K3s is a lightweight Kubernetes distribution from Rancher Labs that you can use to set up your development Kubernetes environment within minutes. It is great for production use cases and is built primarily for IOT and Edge devices.
In this presentation by Packet Labs's Ecosystem Engineer Joseph Maheet, we'll discuss and demo using K3s and traditional datacenter infrastructure and networking automation to architect globally distributed application substrates.
