Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
There are many ways to run Kubernetes on the public cloud. Learn how to run Kubernetes clusters on Amazon automatically using kops, EKS and Rancher.
Rancher 2.4 is now available as Hosted Rancher, whereby each customer gets a dedicated AWS instance of a Rancher Server management control plan. You get a full-featured Rancher server, 99.9 percent SLA and stress-free upgrades, security patches and backups.
AI and ML present a perfect use case for Kubernetes. In this article, we’ll install JupyterHub – a data exploration tool – using Rancher, an enterprise Kubernetes management platform.
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.
In this Kubernetes Master Class, we will discuss in depth the approach Rancher uses for multi-cluster multi-tenant setups.
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.
This training session will go over how to monitor the Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Golden Signals in a Kubernetes cluster using Prometheus and Slack.
Rancher 2.3 Preview 2 dropped today, with preview support for Istio.
Rancher 2.1.0 supported Windows containers in experimental mode. Now we have upgraded Rancher to support the latest version of Windows containers and Kubernetes
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.
Rancher's newest open source project, Submariner, creates a single network across all Kubernetes clusters running on premise or in the cloud.
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.
This blog describes how Rancher and its managed kubernetes clusters can be affected by the recent announcement detailing the vulnerabilities of the proxying external IPs and dashboard.
Rancher now has added support for Huawei Cloud Container Engine (CCE), Alibaba Cloud Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) and Tencent Kubernetes Engine (TKE). The integration will be available in Rancher 2.2, scheduled to ship in early 2019.
Project Longhorn v0.3.0 Release
In our August Rancher Meetup, we’ll dive into how to build a CI/CD workflow with Rancher 2.0 and Kubernetes. We’ll look at best practices for building pipelines with containers, and some of the tools that make it easier. Register for your free link to the online meetup here.
In this blog series, we will try to explore how various features supported by Rancher 1.6 using Cattle can be mapped to their equivalents in the Kubernetes world using Rancher 2.0. Read part 1 here.
Rancher 2.0 is an open-source, enterprise Kubernetes container orchestration platform for running containers in production.
Rancher 2.0 is now available in Beta, and users will notice a ton of new features that really improve how users deploy and manage their applications. In this meetup, we’ll walk through how to deploy applications in Rancher 2.0, as well as how to use the new monitoring, logging and pipeline features.
During the Meetup we’ll be demoing the new Beta, including all of the user-level features. Rancher co-founders Darren Shepherd and Shannon Williams will discuss and demo: -Deploying Kubernetes Applications in Rancher -Automating log management -Configuring monitoring and alerts -Using the Rancher Catalog with Helm -Using Rancher pipeline.
Recently, we announced our second milestone release of Rancher 2.0 Tech Preview 2. This includes the possibility to add custom nodes (nodes that are already provisioned with a Linux operating system and Docker) by running a generated docker run command to launch the rancher/agent container, or by connecting over SSH to that node. In this post, we will explore how we can automate the generation of the command to add nodes using the docker runcommand.
Today we released the second tech preview of Rancher 2.0, our next major Rancher product release. We’ve been hard at work since the last tech preview release in September 2017, driven by the overwhelmingly positive response to our Rancher 2.0 vision and a great deal of feedback we have received.
The Tech Preview 2 release contains many significant changes and enhancements:
Rancher server is now 100% written in Go and no longer requires a MySQL database.
Today, we are announcing a new open-source project called the Rancher Kubernetes Engine (RKE), our new Kubernetes installer. RKE is extremely simple, lightning fast, and works everywhere.
Why a new Kubernetes installer? In the last two years, Rancher has become one of the most popular ways to stand up and manage Kubernetes clusters. Users love Rancher as a Kubernetes installer because it is very easy to use. Rancher fully automates etcd, the Kubernetes master, and worker node operations.
Installing Kubernetes can be one of the toughest problems for operations and DevOps. Learn more about Rancher's lightweight tool for installing Kubernetes.
Update: Rancher 2.0 Tech Preview has since gone to GA. Read the announcement here.
We achieved another significant milestone today at Rancher Labs. After months of hard work, our engineering team released a technology preview of the Rancher 2.0 container management platform.] Rancher 2.0 builds on the tremendous momentum of market-leading Rancher 1.x container management software. Since we shipped Rancher 1.0 in March 2016, Rancher server and Rancher agent have been downloaded over 60 million times.
Modern microservices applications span multiple containers, and sometimes a single app may use thousands of containers. When operating at this scale, you need a container orchestration tool to manage all of those containers. Managing them by hand is simply not feasible. This is where Kubernetes comes in. Kubernetes manages Docker containers that are used to package applications at scale. Since its launch in 2014, Kubernetes has enjoyed widespread adoption within the container ecosystem.
