In this post we want to give a simple introduction for using network policies in a sample project and explaining how it works in K3s to help improving the security of your deployments. There is a common misunderstanding about K3s support for network policies, as K3s is using flannel CNI by default, and the Flannel CNI doesn’t support network polices.

Rancher is a Kubernetes management platform that creates a consistent environment for multicloud container operation. It solves several of the challenges around multicloud Kubernetes deployments, such as poor visibility into where workloads are running and the lack of centralized authentication and access control. Multicloud improves resiliency by letting you distribute applications across providers.

Since the very first version, Epinio has made use of an internal S3 endpoint to store the user’s projects in the form of aggregated tarballs. Those objects are then downloaded and staged by the internal engine’s pipeline and, finally, they are deployed into the Kubernetes cluster as consumable applications. Epinio makes use of S3 as an internal private service. In this scenario, S3 can be thought of as an internal ephemeral cache with the purpose of storing temporary objects.

Companies face multiple challenges when migrating their applications and services to the cloud, and one of them is infrastructure management. The ideal scenario would be that all workloads could be containerized. In that case, the organization could use a Kubernetes-based service, like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud or Azure, to deploy and manage applications, services and storage in a cloud native environment. Unfortunately, this scenario isn’t always possible.

Kubernetes has firmly established itself as the leading choice for container orchestration thanks to its robust ecosystem and flexibility, allowing users to scale their workloads easily. However, the complexity of Kubernetes can make it challenging to set up and may pose a significant barrier for organizations looking to adopt cloud native technology and containers as part of their modernization efforts.

Kubernetes turns 9 this year and with its maturity each year, it brings new challenges that drive seismic influence across the rapidly changing cloud native ecosystem. Each year we see new tools created and existing solutions optimized from new lightweight distributions, new features across Kubernetes management platforms, and container security solutions, all adding value to users but simultaneously contributing to the complexity are facing to run Kubernetes successfully.

In this tutorial, we will walk through the setup of a single-node K3s Kubernetes cluster with Rancher, together with the S3 Gateway (s3gw) and a Longhorn PV (Persistent Volume). This guide will use Digital Ocean, but these instructions will likely work with other cloud providers as well.

Persistent storage is essential for any account-driven website. However, in Kubernetes, most resources are ephemeral and unsuitable for keeping data long-term. Regular storage is tied to the container and has a finite life span. Persistent storage has to be separately provisioned and managed. Making permanent storage work with temporary resources brings challenges that you need to solve if you want to get the most out of your Kubernetes deployments.

Join us live on August 23 as SUSE's Robert Sirchia hosts Rey Lejano, Emeritus Adviser of the Kubernetes 1.25 release team, during the Kubernetes 1.25 release. Rey will guide you through the Kubernetes Release Process and Release Cycle showcase the highlights of this release. This is your chance to ask questions directly to the people involved and look behind the scenes of the release process.

Join Robert Sirchia and Dan Garfield for this session. Configuration drift is a common problem software developers face. Picture this: two environments are supposed to be similar but are not. Nobody knows exactly what is deployed in that environment/server/cluster, so people are afraid to touch it. It’s declared “off-limits” because nobody can reconstruct it if it breaks down. People do hot-fixes or ad-hoc changes without recording them, and then those developers change teams or companies.

This newly-updated, in-depth guidebook provides a detailed overview of the features and functionality of the new Rancher: an open-source enterprise Kubernetes platform.

Rancher is a complete software stack for teams adopting containers. It addresses the operational and security challenges of managing multiple Kubernetes clusters, while providing DevOps teams with integrated tools for running containerized workloads.

At Rancher Labs we love containers, and love the experience they bring to developers. We love their portability, ease-of-use, and rich ecosystem support. We believe that Kubernetes is on the verge of turning from developer’s favorite tool to the de-facto large-scale production platform. So we have built tools that help organizations run their applications and services on herds of containers that can roam across Kubernetes clusters and clouds.

One Platform for Everyone who uses Kubernetes:

  • Multi-Cluster Management: Rancher was built to manage Kubernetes everywhere it runs. It can easily deploy new clusters from scratch, launch EKS, GKE and AKS clusters, or even import existing Kubernetes clusters.
  • Unified Operations: With Rancher, ops teams have the same control and management tools across dev, staging and production Kubernetes clusters.
  • Centralized Policy Management: Ensure container security is implemented consistently with centralized security policies that can be applied across every Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.
  • Authentication and RBAC: Rancher connects with Active Directory, LDAP and other authentication systems to ensure users only have the appropriate access to Kubernetes.
  • Intuitive Interface: Rancher gives users native access to the Kubernetes API and CLI, but also provides an intuitive UI for managing pods, ingress policies, storage, secrets and service discovery.
  • Integrated Tooling: DevOps teams can connect Rancher with existing tools, or choose to use integrated deployments of monitoring, logging, alerting and CI/CD.

Manage Kubernetes Everywhere with Rancher.
