What is Rancher?

This video provides a short introduction to Rancher, the world’s most widely deployed Kubernetes management platform. With Rancher, IT organizations can deploy, manage and secure any Kubernetes deployment regardless of where it is running. Best of all, Rancher is intuitive to use, and built to support DevOps teams, as they use containers to automate operations and move to continuous delivery. Rancher is 100% free and open source.

Create Reproducible Security in Kubernetes with Helm 3 and Helm Charts

With the growing popularity of containerized applications, organizations and startups at all levels need to manage their Kubernetes deployments more safely at scale. Today, there is an expanding list of tools and services that can help do this. One of these services is the package manager known as Helm.


Why SUSE Acquired Rancher Labs

My favorite ice cream store is just off Richmond Green, close to where I live in West London. On sunny days, locals queue around the block to buy their fantastic gelatos and sorbets. Every one of their customers knows that they could easily nip into the supermarket around the corner to buy hermetically sealed chocolate ice cream, but they queue anyway. Why?


SUSE Enters Into Definitive Agreement to Acquire Rancher Labs

I’m excited to announce that Rancher has signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by SUSE. Rancher is the most widely used enterprise Kubernetes platform. SUSE is the largest independent open source software company and a leader in enterprise Linux. By combining Rancher and SUSE, we not only gain massive engineering resources to further strengthen our market-leading product, we are also able to preserve our unique 100% open source business model.

The Fastest at the Edge

When you think of Kubernetes, you probably don't think "fast," but that's what K3s has at its core. Designed for resource-constrained environments like IoT and the Edge, K3s is lightning fast, robust, and powerful, and it includes innovative new features like its Helm controller. In this short video, Adrian Goins talks about K3s, MetalLB, Nginx, Traefik, and Helm while doing an install of a K3s system with MetalLB, Nginx, and Mosquitto in only a few minutes.

Deploy HAProxy Ingress Controller from Rancher's Apps Catalog

In Kubernetes, Ingress objects define rules for how to route a client’s request to a specific service running inside your cluster. These rules can take into account the unique aspects of an incoming HTTP message, including its Host header and the URL path, allowing you to send traffic to one service or another using data discovered in the request itself. That means you can use Ingress objects to define routing for many different applications.
