Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
k3d is a small program made for running a K3s cluster in Docker. K3s is a lightweight, CNCF-certified Kubernetes distribution and Sandbox project. In this post, we'll provide an introduction to k3d.
Rancher recommends two potential solutions for a new Kubernetes security issue affecting multitenant clusters. The threat is: If a potential attacker can already create or edit services and pods, then they may be able to intercept traffic from other pods (or nodes) in the cluster.
Today we’re excited to announce a partnership between NetApp and Rancher to bring multicluster Kubernetes management on premises with NetApp® HCI. Now you can deploy Rancher with push-button ease from NetApp HCI’s management plane, the NetApp Hybrid Cloud Control manageability suite.
In Rancher 2.5, we introduced a new version of our monitoring based on the Prometheus Operator, which provides Kubernetes-native deployment and management of Prometheus and related monitoring components. In this blog, we will explore how to leverage Prometheus Operator for scraping custom metrics and leveraging the same for advanced workload management
This blog post describes an integration between AppDynamics for “full stack” monitoring from the application to the infrastructure and Rancher’s modern platform for Kubernetes “everywhere.”
Install an Etcd cluster and configure monitoring using Prometheus and Grafana, all with the help of Rancher. See how easy it is to accomplish this without the need of dependencies by taking advantage of Rancher's App Catalog.
Gartner analysts claim that Kubernetes doesn’t make applications portable and you’ll need luck to avoid lock-in. We provide a counter argument – and tell you how to avoid Kubernetes lock-in with Rancher.
Continuously maintaining a high level of hygiene across multiple clusters is essential and should be tightly enforced throughout the CI/CD pipeline. Find out how combining Rancher’s management capabilities with a tight security layer by Alcide will accelerate operation processes and empower both DevOps and security teams.
Learn how to integrate Datadog with Rancher for deep visibility into your orchestrated workloads with rich visualizations and algorithmic alerting.
Set up Rancher monitoring remote endpoint integration with Thanos, an open source, highly available Prometheus setup with long-term metric capabilities.
Public sector organization MPAC reduced update and patch management times by 80 percent and cluster deployment time by 85 percent with Rancher for unified Kubernetes management.
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.
Longhorn is built on the principle that distributed storage should be cloud-native and container-first in its design. See what’s inside Longhorn block storage and how it works with Rancher.
Rancher persistent storage, built with CNCF Project Longhorn, is now generally available. Longhorn directly answers the need for an enterprise-grade, vendor-neutral persistent storage solution that supports the easy development of stateful applications within Kubernetes.
Learn how to set up Kubeflow, a machine learning platform for teams that need to build machine learning pipelines, and install the NFS Client Provisioner using the Rancher catalog.
Why does software development velocity slow as a company scales? See how you can improve your company’s knowledge graph with Kubernetes. Optimal use of Kubernetes benefits the organization by reducing the friction and interdependency of all of the parts. As a company scales and adds more teams, it can still maintain efficiency because teams can coordinate through the platform’s structured framework.
Sera4 relies on Rancher to manage their Kubernetes platform. Read how this Rancher Labs customer has reduced outages and achieved zero downtime updates. Find out why Sera4 chose Rancher over Red Hat OpenShift.
Kubeflow 1.0 offers a best-in-class product suite supporting each phase in the machine learning (ML) lifecycle. Find out what it means Kubernetes/machine learning workloads and see how to install Kubeflow on a Kubernetes cluster using Rancher.
Rancher Labs is constantly looking for ways to improve the efficiency of our users, so we’re excited to launch CIS Scan in Rancher 2.4. This new integrated feature for Rancher managed clusters allows you to run ad-hoc security scans of your RKE clusters against more than 100 CIS benchmarks published by the Center for Internet Security. With CIS Scan, you can create custom test configurations and generate reports that illustrate pass/fail information. From there, you can take corrective action to ensure your clusters meet all security requirements.
If your containers handle any sensitive data, including PII, credit cards, or accounts, you’ll need to take a ‘defense in depth’ approach to container security. In this article, we’ll look at best practices for protecting sensitive data and enforcing compliance, from vulnerability management to network segmentation. We’ll also discuss how NeuVector enhances security in Rancher’s Kubernetes management platform.
In Rancher 2.4, we’re introducing zero downtime cluster upgrades. That means you can change the engine on the plane mid-flight. Developers keep deploying applications to the cluster and customers continue to consume services without disruption. Meanwhile, cluster operators safely roll out security and maintenance updates within hours of published releases when combined with Rancher’s out of band Kubernetes updates.
Kubernetes and Rancher are integral to Cardano’s innovation strategy. Read how Cardano saves up to 30 development days per quarter and has reduced its manned support needs by 75 percent.
Rancher Labs CEO and Co-founder Sheng Liang talks with Swapnil Bhartiya of TFiR about where the outlook for Kubernetes, innovation at Rancher and consolidation in the Kubernetes space.
Learn how to move legacy applications from Windows 2003 to Kubernetes. These applications include .Net, web, SQL and other applications that don’t have a dependency to run only on Windows 2003. You can move these applications to containers without code changes, making them portable for the future. And you’ll get the benefit of running the containers on Kubernetes, which provides orchestration, availability, increased resiliency and density.
Today Rancher Labs is announcing a new open source project, k3s, which is a lightweight, easy to install Kubernetes distribution geared towards resource-constrained environments and low touch operations.
