Partnership Combines Rancher 2.0 with Canonical Kubernetes and Leading Cloud OS, Ubuntu Today, we joined Canonical in announcing the Canonical Cloud Native Platform, a new offering that provides complete support and management for Kubernetes in the Enterprise. The Cloud Native Platform combines Rancher 2.0 container management software with Canonical Ubuntu and Ubuntu Kubernetes, and will be available when Rancher 2.0 launches next spring. This announcement is an enormous accomplishment for our team here at Rancher.
In my current role at Rancher Labs, we do a lot of testing and provisioning on Google Compute Engine. One of the things that we found missing were official Ubuntu and Fedora images. Fortunately, Ubuntu now has official images on GCE and we hope that Fedora follows as well. There is an open issue to track the official progress, but in the meantime the new Fedora 21 cloud image is straight forward enough to get going.
