Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
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.
As companies adopt container technologies, they face a significant challenge - how do we secure this new attack surface? In this blog we aim to demystify the Kubernetes security threats, showcase best practices for securing your cluster, and provide useful tools to enable your developers.
Automating the deploy and destroy of your environments and speed up development using the env0 infrastructure automation platform with Rancher’s Kubernetes management platform.
GPUs with Kubernetes are being adopted in the data center and at the edge. GPU is a means to develop ML libraries in the data center that can move to edge clusters to provide data analysis where data is collected. In this blog, we lay out the absolute easiest way to start using GPU resources in Kubernetes clusters.
Rancher Labs partner SVA shares highlights from Rancher 2.5, including the new Cluster Explorer UI, push-button backups and a new Kubernetes distribution, RKE Governmen
Hosted Rancher is a fully managed, cloud-based instance of Rancher server. You don't need to maintain a separate Kubernetes cluster, install the Rancher application or deal with upgrades. You retain all the control and ownership of your downstream Kubernetes clusters just like the on-prem Rancher experience. We give you three reasons to try Hosted Rancher today: increased business continuity, reduced costs and increased adoption.
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.
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.
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.”
As Kubernetes continues to establish itself as the industry standard for container orchestration, finding effective ways to use a declarative model for your applications and tools is critical to success. In this blog, we'll set up a K3s Kubernetes cluster in AWS, then implement secure GitOps using Argo CD and Vault.
Platinum Partner LSD shares their views on Rancher 2.5. They believe the new Rancher 2.5 release addresses both the needs for standards and security across a hybrid environment while enabling efficiency in just getting the job done.
The growing popularity of Kubernetes has led to challenges in managing complexity in an environment that is conducive to cluster sprawl. Rancher 2.5 simplifies deployment and management with Rancher Continuous Delivery, a new capability that adopts a GitOps approach toward streamlining the process across any infrastructure—private, public, hybrid or multi-cloud environments—by using a Git repository to store and manage application and configuration information automatically, ensuring consistency in deployments while taking a lot of the load off of the customer.
Rancher 2.5 delivers major new capabilities that simplify and enhance the Kubernetes user experience, whether the user is starting with a single, local cluster or managing many clusters across a hybrid cloud infrastructure. Other new capabilities include: GitOps at scale for edge clusters, full lifecycle management for Amazon EKS clusters and security hardening for public sector applications.
Amazon EKS is the most popular managed Kubernetes solution. Rancher 2.5 can help ease the full lifecycle management of all your Amazon EKS clusters. You can now provision new EKS Clusters in AWS and configure public and private endpoints, the IP access list to the API, control plane logging and secrets encryption with AWS Key Management Service.
As part of Rancher 2.5, we are excited to introduce a new, simpler way to install Rancher called RancherD. This is a single binary you can launch on a host to bring up a Kubernetes cluster bundled with a deployment of Rancher itself. This means you just have one thing to manage: RancherD. Configuration and upgrading are no longer two-step processes where you first have to deal with the underlying Kubernetes cluster and then deal with the Rancher deployment.
