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.
Project Harvester is an open source hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software built using Kubernetes. Harvester provides fully integrated virtualization and storage capabilities on bare-metal servers. No Kubernetes knowledge is required to use Harvester.
The premise of cloud-native storage is simple: its native habitat is a Kubernetes cluster. When we design with the assumption that a technology will exist in Kubernetes, we get to look around and see what functionalities already exist in that system. And then we repurpose whatever functions are useful for our design.
We all know how complicated it is to set up Kubernetes, and customers love Rancher because it simplifies that rollout. But once you get the cluster running, a more significant challenge awaits: how do you ensure your Kubernetes applications are up to date and secure? By combining Rancher and StackRox, you can simplify both the management and security of your Kubernetes deployments.
Rancher CEO Sheng Liang and Portworx CEO Murli Thirumale discuss the evolution of Kubernetes storage and how industry players must come together for the benefit of the open source community and industry at large.
SAP is validating Rancher Kubernetes Engine (RKE) as a supported Kubernetes platform to deploy SAP Data Intelligence 3.0 (SAP DI). This blog will guide you on how to properly install SAP DI on an RKE cluster.
The rapid adoption of Kubernetes has exposed a gap in the storage industry. See how Longhorn, a lightweight and easy-to-use storage platform that integrates with Rancher, bridges the gap.
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.
Project Longhorn v0.3.0 Release
Since we announced Project Longhorn last year, there has been a great deal of interest in running Longhorn storage on a Kubernetes cluster.
-- Today, I am very excited to announce the availability of Project Longhorn v0.2, which is a persistent storage implementation for any Kubernetes cluster. Once deployed on a Kubernetes cluster, Longhorn automatically clusters all available local storage from all the nodes in the cluster to form replicated and distributed block storage.
