From datacenter to cloud to edge, Rancher lets you deliver Kubernetes-as-a-Service.


Zero Trust vSphere Provisioning from Rancher

an idea by wjimenez

Currently, when Rancher tries to provision a Kubernetes cluster on vSphere, it needs to initiate API calls to the vSphere endpoint. In a hybrid cloud environment this often means that the Rancher server is not in the same network as the vSphere endpoint. Therefore inbound access is required to be added to a firewall so Rancher can reach the vSphere system. This naturally poses a security concern and creates administrative burden on our users who have to go through a security review to get this approved. If instead of requiring direct API access, an agent could exist inside the network where the vSphere API lived, then this agent could broker the communication between the Rancher server and the downstream API. The agent would simply initiate an outbound API connection to the Rancher server (much like any node agent or cluster agent currently) and simultaneously proxy any API calls that Rancher needs to make to vSphere. This would also have the benefit of being able to be run through a HTTP proxy, which many security teams will appreciate as a less risky connectivity model.

Rancher & Gardener: Stronger Together

an idea by mlnoga

Project Description

Gardener is SAP's portable Kubernetes distribution and management framework, which aims to create a common base layer for current and future SAP applications and services. Rancher is the leading management framework for arbitrary Kubernetes distributions. Wouldn't it be great if Rancher and Gardener could work together, and Gardner became a first-class citizen in Rancher?

Near-zero downtime upgrades for stateful services with Rancher

an idea by mlnoga

Project Description

Containers are great for scaling stateless services and making them robust. However, stateful services like databases continue to pose challenges. In particular, upgrading a running database service to a new version with near zero downtime is not trivial. Wouldn't it be great if a helm chart or K8S operator could automatically take care of this for you? This would allow you to fire up a database in your K8S cluster and consume it as-a-service. And put us one step closer to building a private cloud that runs anywhere, powered by pure open source.

Rancher Releases

a project by jpayne

Project Description

Releasing rancher is currently a complex process and requires release captains to make alot of manual commits. Much of this work is very procedural. Our goal is to automate the more mundane tasks to make it faster and easier for new release captains to get started.

Rancher QA Blog Space

a project by jamcghee

Project Description

The intent of this Project is to create a website to allow the creation, posting, and sharing of Blog posts created by the Rancher QA Team. These posts will cover a broad level of subjects surrounding the Rancher space, and can be very high level walk throughs, very technical discussions, etc. This website is intended to be publicly available for viewing, and blogs will be targeted toward helping users, but contributors will only be internal.

Rancher Manager of Managers with KCP

a project by rcase

Project Description

With the desire for Rancher Manager to scale to managing 1000s of clusters (10,000 i hear you say) we could try and have 1 instance of Rancher Manager doing it all. But could we have a Manager of Managers? How could we support multi-tenancy where each Rancher Manager has different versions etc?

image-tools: simple tool for mirror/save/load container images & KDM and chart image list generator.

an invention by StarryWang

Project Description

Currently, the way to install Rancher in Air-Gap mode (with personal registry server) is using the rancher-save/load-images.sh script to save container images required by Rancher into tar.gz tarball and load it into the personal registry. These scripts work fine when saving and loading single-arch images.

K3S Control Planes as a service

a project by ademicev0

Project Description

We know that Kubernetes clusters need control planes but running them in dedicated VMs might not be always efficient, instead, we can run them as pods within the management cluster.
