Rancher is a complete software stack for teams adopting containers. It addresses the operational and security challenges of managing multiple Kubernetes clusters across any infrastructure, while providing DevOps teams with integrated tools for running containerized workloads.
The First Real Answer For Multi-Cloud Computing
The people who depend on you demand that your services stay up, no matter what. The best way to ensure you meet demand is to deploy services in multiple regions, on multiple providers. You’ll need an efficient and reliable platform, built to manage multiple Kubernetes clusters in production.
Rancher not only deploys Kubernetes clusters anywhere, on any provider, but it also unites them under centralized authentication and access control. Because it’s agnostic about where the resources run, you can easily bring up clusters in a different provider and migrate resources between them. Instead of having several independent Kubernetes deployments, Rancher unifies them as a single, managed Kubernetes Cloud.
You will love the freedom to work on what you care about - without software or hardware getting in the way.
For those who have tried, writing Kubernetes manifests in YAML is unforgiving if you get it wrong. With Rancher, you benefit from Kubernetes immediately, without worrying about YAML. You can launch your applications and wire them together quickly at production level. You won’t need to know everything there is to know about Kubernetes before you can even begin.
100% Free and Open Source Software with Native Upstream Kubernetes
You need your software to be agile, reliable, and secure. A proprietary software vendor can stall or ignore your needed feature request. And with only a vendor’s technologists vetting code, how reliable and secure is it, really?
We are believers in the open-source paradigm. Every one of our products are free and open source. There’s no “community edition” that’s lesser than the “enterprise edition.” From the lone mad scientist to the global organization, all users get access to every advantage that comes with installing Rancher.

2 Easy Steps
See how easy it is to get up and running with Rancher, right away.
Prepare a Linux host with 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04, at least 4GB of memory. Install a supported version of Docker on the host.
To install and run Rancher server, execute the following Docker command on your host:
$ sudo docker run -d --restart=unless-stopped -p 80:80 -p 443:443 rancher/rancher
To access the Rancher server UI, open a browser and go to the hostname or address where the container was installed. You will be guided through setting up your first cluster.
