Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Join the community and Rancher engineers as we demonstrate five of the most powerful features in the latest release of Rancher, including how to deploy applications to multiple clusters, how to route traffic to them, how to gather detailed cluster and app metrics, how to protect your cluster from a disaster, and how to recover it if the unexpected happens.
In our August Online Meetup, we will look at the new Cluster Template feature coming in Rancher 2.3! Book your spot here.
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.
Docker Compose is a great framework for deploying application stacks, and at Rancher we’ve been working hard to make it possible to leverage that framework to create a catalog of application blueprints that can be repeatably configured and deployed. In this recording of our January online meetup, we demonstrated the new Catalog feature in Rancher and how to create catalog items. In the meetup we demonstrated: - Using the Rancher catalog to configure, deploy and upgrade an application - Creating a private app catalog linked to a git repo - Best practices for building catalog templates - Inserting application configuration into templates We demonstrated all of this live, and answered dozens of questions about Docker, Rancher, and building application templates.
Container logging is a common challenge for container deployments. Logging with containers is a bit different than traditional logging, because the logs for each container are nested within the container. On September 16th, we hosted an online meetup discussing all aspects of container logging, and demonstrating how to build a scalable logging service for Docker and Rancher that uses Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana (ELK), along with Logspout. In the meetup Rancher DevOps lead Bill Maxwell discussed: • Docker Logging Challenges • Options for gathering logs from containers • System and Application logging requirements • Deploying an ELK stack using Docker Compose with Rancher • Scaling and managing a production ELK deployment You can view a recording of the meetup below.
Thanks to Docker, Orange and Blumberg Capital for hosting a great meetup last night in San Francisco. Darren Shepherd, Chief Architect of Rancher Labs introduced RancherOS for the first time, and answered questions from the audience. Learn more about
RancherOS, or download it from GitHub. If
you’d like to learn more, Darren will be presenting RancherOS at an online meetup on March 31st, 2015.

Rio is a MicroPaaS built on top of Kubernetes that gives you simple commands to deploy, manage, scale, and version applications. Join the webinar here.
From overlay networking and SSL to ingress controllers and network security policies, we've seen many users get hung up on Kubernetes networking challenges. In our June online meetup, we'll dive into Kubernetes networking, and discussing best practices for a wide variety of deployment options.
In this meetup, Rancher co-founder Shannon Williams and Rancher Engineer Chris Kim will be on hand to discuss and demonstrate Rancher's newest open-source project called Submariner, which provides network connectivity between multiple Kubernetes clusters.
Join Rancher Co-founders, Darren Shepherd and Shannon Williams as they discuss and demonstrate the features of the newly announced open source project, k3s.
In this meetup, we will show you how to install and run Kubernetes 1.14 clusters, add Windows worker nodes to the cluster, and schedul and deploy Windows containers on Windows nodes.
This online meetup discusses and demos k3OS -- a new lightweight operating system purpose-built for Rancher's popular k3s Kubernetes distribution.
Register for our free Online Meetup to learn how Rancher 2.3 provides consistent Kubernetes cluster operations bringing cloud-like operations on-premises.
In our November Online Meetup, we discussed the application catalog in Rancher and how to create your own catalog items.
In our October Rancher Meetup, we’ll discuss how to transition various aspects of Rancher 1.6 applications to Rancher 2.0. We’ll look at key terminology differences and parallels, how to implement important elements, and transition from Cattle Compose to YAML specs.
In our May online meetup, we'll dive into the reality of running an enterprise container platform built on Rancher 2.0. Watch the recording here.
We’re about to start the Rancher 2.0 beta program, so for this month’s meetup we’ll be providing a detailed look at the latest release of Rancher, and explaining how to get involved with the Beta. Rancher 2.0 is designed to make all aspects of leveraging Kubernetes easier for both users and admins, and we’ll highlight many of the latest features in this online meetup.
During the meetup we’ll be demoing the new release including all of the user-level features.
Rancher 2.0 tech preview provides centralized management of multiple Kubernetes clusters across multiple clouds. Features such as centralized provisioning, authentication, and access control significantly increase visibility into and control of your Kubernetes clusters.
Join us for our November online meetup when we’ll be doing a deep dive into the Rancher 2.0 cluster management capabilities. Rancher co-founders Darren Shepherd and Shannon Williams will discuss and demo: A new tool to stand up Kubernetes clusters on vSphere and bare metal servers Provisioning Kubernetes clusters on Google Centralizing authentication across clusters How to setup RBAC policies according to projects and team Deploying applications from Rancher catalog that are built out of Kubernetes YAML files As always, all demonstrations will be live.
In this webinar, we will present some of the challenges associated with managing persistent data in Kubernetes and how we can make day 2 operations easier to manage.
On April 29th, Shannon Williams and Darren Shepherd hosted an online meetup to talk about deploying microservices based applications using Docker Compose and Rancher. The session included demonstrations of how to build a Docker Compose file, and how to use Rancher’s upcoming services capability to deploy, scale and manage docker environments. The first hour of the video includes overview content and the demonstrations. The rest of the recording are questions from the attendees.
Rancher is out of Beta, in our March online meetup we shared how to build a full-stack container platform. After nine months of beta, hundreds of thousands of downloads, and endless contributions to the open source community, Rancher 1.0 is now available. To celebrate, we focused our March meetup on demonstrating what’s new in 1.0 and providing an overview on how to use Rancher to deliver containers as a service for your organization.
