July 2020 Online Meetup - Rancher + Azure Arc for Kubernetes
Join Rancher Labs and Microsoft this month to take a look at how Azure Arc for Kubernetes can integrate your Rancher clusters into the Azure portal. Organizations infrastructure is often a combination of on-premise and cloud-based solutions. Azure users now have the option to centralize their policy and compliance management through a single pane of glass in the Azure Resource Manager (check out our recent blog post here to learn more).
By importing your Rancher clusters into the Azure portal through Azure Arc, users can see all of their Kubernetes clusters and Azure cloud resources in a single place. Using Azure policy management, users can deploy and update applications on their Rancher clusters using Git repositories. Security and compliance policy can be defined and applied across all clusters through the Azure Portal simplifying your operations across all infrastructure types.
In this meetup we will:
- See how to provision clusters with Rancher and import those clusters into Azure Arc for Kubernetes
- Configure and apply OPA policy to your cluster
- Enable GitOps deployments of your applications
- View Kubernetes monitoring information from the Azure portal
