What Rancher Adds To Kubernetes

Unified Cluster Management

Rancher centrally manages multiple Kubernetes clusters. Rancher can provision and manage cloud Kubernetes services like GKE, EKS, and AKS or import existing clusters. Rancher implements centralized authentication (GitHub, AD/LDAP, SAML, etc.) across RKE or cloud Kubernetes services.

Application Workload Management

Rancher offers an intuitive UI, enabling users to run containers without learning all Kubernetes concepts up-front. Rancher includes an application catalog, enabling one-click deployment of Helm and Compose templates. Rancher implements integrated alert and log aggregation and turn-key CI/CD pipelines.

Learn More

No Vendor Lock-In

Rancher is 100% open source and every Rancher deployment includes a natively-implemented, upstream-Kubernetes distribution with no forks, making it easy to adopt the latest stable release and upstream bug fixes in a timely manner. With Rancher, you avoid vendor lock-in, but keep the flexibility to use the tools and infrastructure add-ons you want, whenever you need them.

Centralized Policy Management

Rancher makes it easy for admins to create security and RBAC policies that can be easily used across any Kubernetes clusters. An RBAC policy is a set of permissions granted to users to act upon resources in a cluster.

World-Class Support

Rancher makes day-to-day Kubernetes operations a breeze. You can easily stay up-to-date with a stable Kubernetes release as well as adopt upstream bug fixes in a timely manner. You should never again be stuck with old, outdated and proprietary technologies. Expert support is available 24X7.
