Kubernetes clusters use multiple certificates to provide both encryption of traffic to the Kubernetes components as well as authentication of these requests. These certificates are auto-generated for clusters launched by Rancher and also clusters launched by the Rancher Kubernetes Engine (RKE) CLI.

Containers, along with containerization technology like Docker and Kubernetes, have become increasingly common components in many developers’ toolkits. The goal of containerization, at its core, is to offer a better way to create, package, and deploy software across different environments in a predictable and easy-to-manage way.

The mechanism for interacting with Kubernetes on a daily basis is typically through a command line tool called kubectl. kubectl is primarily used to communicate with Kubernetes API servers to create, update, delete workloads within Kubernetes. The objective of this tutorial is to provide an overview of some of the common commands that you can utilise, as well as provide a good starting point in managing Kubernetes.

Today I’m excited to announce a new Rancher Labs project called Rio. Rio is a MicroPaaS that can be layered on any standard Kubernetes cluster. Consisting of a few Kubernetes custom resources and a CLI to enhance the user experience, users can easily deploy services to Kubernetes and automatically get continuous delivery, DNS, HTTPS, routing, monitoring, autoscaling, canary deployments, git-triggered builds, and much more.

Remember when working with containers was fun and simple? When it didn't require a doctorate to run an application? Rancher Labs remembers too, and we've created Rio to bring us back to those days.

As more container deployments move into production there will be an increasing level of attacks on application containers and the orchestration tools to manage them. The success of Kubernetes has been a major enabler for the “service mesh” concept to become a reality, as a “sidecar” container is the ideal form-factor for service mesh functions to be placed together with the service itself. The important thing to remember is that, although a service mesh has security features, it is NOT a security solution. It is not designed to provide the type of network, endpoint and host security required for defense in depth.

We all have gone through the introductory talks about Istio, but there is some confusion on how you can bring Istio in to a full production environment. In this master class, we will help you understand this journey of bringing Istio into a production environment and how it differs from your testing environments.

From purpose-built hardware to virtual machines and now containers, service providers and telcos are re-thinking how they deploy and deliver cloud and network services. These service providers are on a journey to break down their monolithic stacks into small, reusable components that are consistent with a micro-services architecture.
