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.

Fleet is new open source project from the team at Rancher focused on managing fleets of Kubernetes clusters. Ever since Rancher 1.0, Rancher has provided a central control plane for managing multiple clusters. As pioneers of Kubernetes multi-cluster management, we have seen firsthand how users have consistently increased the number of clusters under management. We are already seeing interest from users who want to manage tens of thousands or even millions of clusters in the near future.
