Today we are announcing support for Istio with Rancher 2.3 in Preview mode. Istio, and service mesh generally, has developed a huge amount of excitement in the Kubernetes ecosystem. Istio promises to add fault tolerance, canary rollouts, A/B testing, monitoring and metrics, tracing and observability, and authentication and authorization, eliminating the need for developers to instrument or write specific code to enable these capabilities.

This is the third of a series of three articles focusing on Kubernetes security: the outside attack, the inside attack, and dealing with resource consumption or noisy neighbors. A concern for many administrators setting up a multi-tenant Kubernetes cluster is how to prevent a co-tenant from becoming a “noisy neighbor,” one who monopolizes CPU, memory, storage and other resources.

Kubernetes clusters use multiple certificates to provide both encryption of traffic to the Kubernetes components as well as authentication of these requests. These certificates are auto-generated for clusters launched by Rancher and also clusters launched by the Rancher Kubernetes Engine (RKE) CLI.

Containers, along with containerization technology like Docker and Kubernetes, have become increasingly common components in many developers’ toolkits. The goal of containerization, at its core, is to offer a better way to create, package, and deploy software across different environments in a predictable and easy-to-manage way.

It’s often considered hard to use persistent storage correctly with Kubernetes. The concepts of Volume, PV, PVC, Storage Class; the implication of read-write-once vs read-write-many; the difference between Deployment vs StatefulSet are each obstacles for users to fully understand Kubernetes’s persistent storage.

The three pillars of observability are metrics, logs, and traces. To get a complete view into your applications as well as the Kubernetes platform they run on, you need to be looking at all the different perspectives. In this session, we will look at each pillar to see how we can use the information collected to understand what is happening in our environment today and how to troubleshoot the problems we experience tomorrow. We will share how to do this using various open source tools as well as using the Datadog platform.

Ready to get some training on using K3s, the lightweight Kubernetes distribution?Earlier this year, Rancher Labs introduced k3s, a new open source project which is a lightweight implementation of Kubernetes that is easy to install and can run on x86 and ARM infrastructure with only 512 MB of RAM required to run it. It is geared towards teams that need to deploy applications quickly and reliably to resource-constrained environments. Some use cases for k3s are edge, Single Board Computers, IoT, and CI.

Understanding how to monitor the "Golden Signals" of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) in your Kubernetes cluster(s) is an important skill for any engineer, especially for Day 2 Operations. Fortunately, there are some very useful, powerful, and open source tools and technologies out there for accomplishing these tasks. This training session will go over how to monitor these "Golden Signals" in a Kubernetes cluster using Prometheus and Slack.
