Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Learn how to move legacy applications from Windows 2003 to Kubernetes. These applications include .Net, web, SQL and other applications that don’t have a dependency to run only on Windows 2003. You can move these applications to containers without code changes, making them portable for the future. And you’ll get the benefit of running the containers on Kubernetes, which provides orchestration, availability, increased resiliency and density.
K3s runs on many devices - what happens if you have the perfect hardware to run it on? See how easy it is to build a portable Kubernetes cluster with a Clusterboard.
In this session of the Kubernetes Master Class Series, we will cover the networking internals of Windows Server worker nodes and Windows Server Containers. Register here for the class.
Use Terraform, Azure and RKE to provision a Rancher cluster and a Managed Windows Kubernetes cluster from scratch.
With the release of Rancher 2.3, Rancher is the first to have graduated Windows support to GA and can now deploy Kubernetes clusters with Windows support from within the user experience.
Rancher 2.1.0 supported Windows containers in experimental mode. Now we have upgraded Rancher to support the latest version of Windows containers and Kubernetes
Learn more about the steps of installing Docker on Windows, and explore the similarities and differences between Windows docker containers and Linux containers.
Since Docker launched in 2013, it has brought a level of excitement and innovation to software development that’s contagious. It has rallied support from every corner—enterprises to startups, developers to IT folk, plus the open source community, ISVs, the biggest public cloud vendors, and every tool across the software stack. Since the launch of Docker, many major milestones have served to advance the container revolution. Let’s look at some of them.
Earlier this week, we released [Rancher 1.3]. It includes several new features: user interface fixes, changes to our DNS engines, and improvements when using Kubernetes and associated tooling. However, Rancher 1.3 also begins addressing a frequent request we receive from users: Windows 2016 support. Windows support in Rancher 1.3 is purely experimental and limited in scope (you can [read more in our docs]), but it’s an important step towards serving the needs of our customers as containers become more widely adopted in enterprises.
