This article walks though connecting GitLab's Auto DevOps feature to a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster using a Rancher feature called Authorized Cluster Endpoint.
Rancher 2.2 has reached GA and is available for immediate use. It's packed with features for Day 2 Kubernetes operations, designed to make clusters and their workloads more available and easier to manage. This article describes the main features in 2.2, their benefits, and when to use them.
My name is Jason van Brackel and I'm Rancher Labs' new Director of Community. In this post, I'd like to introduce myself and outline my vision of the community we can shape together.
More than 20,000 production environments run Rancher, and more than 200 businesses across finance, health care, military, government, retail, manufacturing, and entertainment engage with with Rancher Labs commercially because they recognize that Rancher works better than other solutions. Read on to learn why those who use Rancher are passionate about its benefits.
This article by Rancher Head of Product Management describes the difference between Kubernetes scale up and scale out, and the need for multi-cluster applications solutions to handle challenges of Kubernetes scaling in production.
Rancher's multi-cluster applications are the easiest way to add reliability to applications running in multiple Kubernetes clusters. This article demonstrates how to use the new feature, available in Rancher 2.2 Preview 2.
In this article, we differentiate between Rancher and related components like RKE and custom clusters. We talk about what each piece is responsible for and how they work together to enable better cluster management.
Container platforms continue to evolve and mature in the Enterprise, with Kubernetes fast becoming the standard orchestration platform. Join Rancher and experts from Aquasec and StorageOS as we show how to easily deploy and manage a Kubernetes cluster, and then look into ways to address the questions of security and storage in the platform. In this session you’ll learn: How to deploy and manage Kubernetes clusters to any on-prem or cloud based platform How to deploy an application to the platform How to set up persistent storage volumes How to secure the container environments at each level Attendees are politely asked to ensure they attend if registered as space is limited to only 30 people, and also to be conversant with basic container management principles and aware of basic Kubernetes functionality.
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.
A hands-on guide to deploying applications in Rancher’s new Kubernetes environments Over the last few months our team at Rancher Labs has been adding support for Kubernetes natively within Rancher. Our implementation of Kubernetes takes advantage of Rancher’s platform orchestration, simple UI, access control, networking and storage capabilities to deliver simple to deploy Kubernetes clusters for managing applications. In our February meetup we introduced this new support, and discussed how these Kubernetes environments compare with our native Docker environments and help you understand when and how each can be used to power your containers.
