Rancher Online Meetup: January 2021 - k3d: Local Development with K3s Made Easy

In this meetup we'll show you how to get productive developing locally on Kubernetes with the help of k3d which lets you spin up a K3s cluster on your laptop. We'll guide you through a full development setup including the k3d CLI, the awesome new vscode-k3d plugin and synergy with tools like Skaffold or Tilt.

November Meetup - GitOps with Rancher Continuous Delivery

As the number of clusters under management increase, application owners and cluster operators need a programatic way to manage deploying to their clusters. Rancher Continuous Delivery allows an administrator to create groups of clusters and link them to Git repositories. This means an application owner only ever needs access to the Git repository and not the management cluster. Deployment manifests can be defined in Helm, Kustomize or K8s yaml files and can be tailored based on attributes of the target clusters.

September 2020 Online Meetup - What's New with K3s?

If you haven't heard, Rancher's K3s was accepted last month as a Sandbox Project by the CNCF! Exciting things have been underway with K3s and in this September's meetup we will bring you up to speed on all of them. We’ll discuss the donation of K3s to the CNCF and talk about the changes you can expect to see as part of this move. Rancher experts will also cover the features and enhancements available in the 1.19 release. The focus of the 1.19 release has been improved configurability and operations for K3s clusters.

Rancher Online Meetup - December 2020: Open Source Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Learn about a new project we’ve been working on at Rancher Labs! Harvester is a virtualization and HCI platform that uses open-source hypervisors and other CNCF technologies to produce a seamless experience for administrators of complex environments that depend on Virtual Machines. Join Harvester’s principal engineer Sheng Yang and product manager William Jimenez as they walk you through the new tech.

Kubernetes GitOps with Rancher Continuous Delivery

As the number of Kubernetes clusters under management increases, application owners and cluster operators need a programmatic way to approach cluster management. Rancher CD solves this by creating a git driven engine for applying cluster changes. Declarative code is stored in a git repo. As changes are committed to the repo, linked clusters are automatically updated. Gitops keeps all your clusters consistent, version controlled, and reduces the administrative burden as you scale.

In this Master Class, Rancher Field Engineer Jason Skrzypek will summarize the notable changes, discuss the rationale behind some of them, and demonstrate the possibilities that this new implementation unlocks.

Kubernetes Master Class - Provision Kubernetes in vSphere with Rancher

vSphere continues to be a popular destination for Rancher-provisioned Kubernetes clusters. In this Master Class, Rancher Staff Software Engineer, Luther Monson and Field Engineer, David Holder present updates on the capabilities of Rancher with vSphere. Follow along with a full cluster lifecycle demonstration showcasing template creation, provisioning, cloud providers and more.

Kubernetes Master Class - Cluster Monitoring in Rancher 2.5

With Rancher 2.5, the integrated Monitoring and Alerting system has been improved significantly and is now much more powerful and flexible. It is easier than ever to scrape your own workloads with Prometheus, to create custom dashboards in Grafana and to configure alerts and notification channels to your liking. In this Master Class, Rancher Field Engineer Bastian Hofmann will discuss these improvements and demo how you can customize the whole monitoring system to fit your needs.
