Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Today Rancher announces a partnership with Arm to create a Kubernetes-based platform for IoT, edge, and data center nodes, all powered by Arm servers. Rancher and Arm are working jointly on a Smart City project in China. Read more here.
After months of work we will be previewing Rancher at AWS Re:Invent November 11-14. Stop by Booth #455 to meet our team and get the latest on what we’re planning over the next few months.
In this episode of CloudSkills.fm I talk to Sheng Liang, Co-founder and CEO at Rancher Labs, about deploying and managing multi-cloud workloads with Kubernetes.
Yesterday, Atlantis Computing announced a new converged platform for managing infrastructure and containers, which combines Rancher with their award-winning USX software-defined storage solution. This turnkey solution will make it easier for IT organizations to deliver containers as a service to their developers with enterprise-grade storage, without losing sight of the very real, bottom-line benefits that come from optimizing virtualized infrastructure. This solution will be available as a tech preview in early November.
Since we announced Project Longhorn last year, there has been a great deal of interest in running Longhorn storage on a Kubernetes cluster.
Today, I am very excited to announce the availability of Project Longhorn v0.2, which is a persistent storage implementation for any Kubernetes cluster. Once deployed on a Kubernetes cluster, Longhorn automatically clusters all available local storage from all the nodes in the cluster to form replicated and distributed block storage.
Hi everyone, I recorded a brief overview of how to launch a Rancher 0.3 environment, connect it with some resources from a few different public clouds, and then deploy an application. If you’d like to learn more about Rancher, please visit our GitHubsite for information on joining the community, or downloading the software. You can also schedule a demo to talk with one of our engineers about the project.
At DockerCon a couple weeks back, we announced Rancher’s new capability to manage Persistent Storage Services, and how it can be used to make it easier to manage stateful applications. Today, with the release of Rancher 0.47.0, I’m excited to finally make it available for our users to try it as an Experimental feature. Rancher makes it easy for you to deploy this by allowing you to both launch a GlusterFS storage service and deploy Convoy-Gluster as the Docker volume plugin to your environment directly from Rancher’s App Catalog.
View the Rancher 1.1.0 release notes on GitHub After a very exciting DockerCon last week where the bulk of the engineering team was able to see all the latest and greatest innovations surrounding the Docker ecosystem, our team was able to squash the remaining issues for our Rancher 1.1 stable release. If you have been following our dev builds, we have been shipping tech preview features with each release for our open source community members who want to play with the latest Rancher has to offer.
*Note: since this article has posted, we’ve released Rancher 1.2.1, which addresses much of the feedback we have received on the initial release. You can read more about the v1.2.1 release on Github. * I am very excited to announce the release of Rancher 1.2! This release goes beyond the requisite support for the latest versions of Kubernetes, Docker, and Docker Compose, and includes major enhancements to the Rancher container management platform itself Rancher 1.
We’ve just released Rancher v1.6, the latest version of our container management platform. While we still recommend that production or mission-critical deployments use our most recent stable release, we’re excited to share what’s new in v1.6. In this release, we’ve built greater control for our users over their storage and secrets.
Validating EBS Support We first implemented support for EBS before Rancher itself was even generally available, but in v1.
Rancher 2.0 was made GA (generally available) on May 1st, and there is quite a bit to be excited about. Providing a managed Kubernetes distribution, Rancher is deterministic in deployment and lightweight in installation.
Alena is a principal software engineer at Rancher Labs. Rancher has supported Kubernetes as one of our orchestration framework options since March 2016. We’ve incorporated Kubernetes as an essential element within Rancher. It is integrated with all of the core Rancher capabilities to achieve the maximum advantage for both platforms. Writing the Rancher ingress controller to backup the Kubernetes Ingress feature is a good example of that. In this article, I will give a high-level design overview of the feature and describe what steps need to be taken to implement it from a developer’s point of view.
With the release of Rancher v1.0.1, setting up and running a highly-available Rancher cluster just got a whole lot easier. Prior to this release, users were required to create and manage their own Zookeeper Ensemble, Redis Cluster, external relational database, Rancher servers and external load balancer. Monitoring of these components was a wholly manual process or required extra middleware and ramp-up time. Configuring Rancher servers to communicate with these components was another hurdle, and left more room for error and frustration.
