The History of Rancher

We started Rancher in 2014 to create software that would simplify the lives of teams who were building applications using containers. The market was new, Docker had just been introduced and questions about how to manage, secure and orchestrate containers were pressing and exciting problems to solve.

Within a year we introduced the first version of Rancher, an open -source software platform for teams innovating around containers. By 2016 we had adopted Kubernetes as an orchestrator and had thousands of teams using Rancher to run containers in production.

As our community has grown, we haven’t stopped innovating. Rancher 2.0 became the first enterprise-grade platform for delivering Kubernetes as an enterprise service. Projects like k3s and submariner continue to push the Kubernetes community forward.

In 2020, Rancher became part of SUSE, a pioneering open source innovator. All along, and especially now, we’ve maintained our commitment to build open-source software that helps users innovate everywhere.
