How Rancher Strengthens Kubernetes
Kubernetes is a powerful engine for orchestrating containers. Rancher includes a full Kubernetes distribution, but adds value around Kubernetes in three key areas: Cluster Operations and Management, Intuitive Workload Management, and Enterprise Support.
App Workload Management
Kubernetes contains powerful functionality for orchestrating applications and guaranteeing service availability. Rancher adds a complete UI and workload management layer to Kubernetes, that simplifies adoption and integrates CI/CD as well as key open source projects such as Prometheus, Grafana and Fluentd.
Rancher makes it easy for users to deploy services on Kubernetes and get visibility into everything running on a cluster. Define scheduling rules, health checks, ingress controllers, secrets, storage and other key configuration choices.
Allocate multiple Kubernetes namespaces within the same cluster to an individual user or team. Quickly define access control policies, secrets and other configuration items that span multiple namespaces.
By leveraging Helm, Rancher’s app catalogs increase productivity and reliability for enterprises running complex workloads in a hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud, and multi-cluster Kubernetes environment.
Rancher’s built-in Grafana dashboards give enhanced observability into all Kubernetes clusters while ensuring isolation across different projects and users.
