Rancher 2.0 is an open source Kubernetes management platform that allows organizations to deliver Kubernetes-as-a-Service to their employees and centrally manage all of their Kubernetes clusters, regardless of how the cluster was deployed, or where it is running. Rancher 2.0 is the first platform to manage hosted Kubernetes services from Google (GKE), Amazon (EKS) and Azure (AKS), enforcing consistent security policies, and providing an intuitive user experience across any cluster. With Rancher 2.0, organizations can accelerate the adoption of Kubernetes and deploy applications consistently on any infrastructure. Rancher 2.0 is built for organizations embracing containers, microservices and Kubernetes to accelerate development, improve application reliability and reduce infrastructure costs. The platform consists of three core components: • Rancher Kubernetes Engine, a Kubernetes distribution that can be deployed on any infrastructure, whether on premise or in the cloud. • Unified Cluster Management, a centralized management engine that allows IT departments to configure and enforce consistent security and administrative policies on any Kubernetes cluster, whether it is already running, deployed by Rancher, or provisioned as a service from a cloud provider. • Application Workload Management, an intuitive user interface for Kubernetes, combined with an application catalog, real-time monitoring and alerting, log aggregation, and integrated CI/CD pipelines. Rancher 2.0 is open source software and freely available to anyone. For organizations looking for enterprise-grade support, Rancher Labs offers world-class support for the entire container stack, including the container engine, Kubernetes distribution and Rancher platform, giving organizations the confidence to deploy Kubernetes and Rancher in production, at any scale.
