Today we launched a new open source project called k3OS. K3OS is a Linux distro built for the sole purpose of running Kubernetes clusters. In fact, it is a Linux distro and the k3s Kubernetes distro in one! As soon as you boot up a k3OS node, you have Kubernetes up and running. When you boot up multiple k3OS nodes, they form a Kubernetes cluster. K3OS is perhaps the easiest way to stand up Kubernetes clusters on any server.

In this post, we will walk through how to connect GitLab’s Auto DevOps feature with a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster, making use of a feature introduced in Rancher v2.2.0 called Authorized Cluster Endpoint. Readers can expect to walk away with an understanding of how GitLab integrates with Kubernetes and how Rancher simplifies this workflow with Authorized Cluster Endpoint.

With over 48,000 stars on GitHub, more than 75,000 commits, and with major contributors like Google and Red Hat, Kubernetes has rapidly taken over the container ecosystem to become the true leader of container orchestration platforms. Kubernetes offers great features like rolling and rollback of deployments, container health checks, automatic container recovery, container auto-scaling based on metrics, service load balancing, service discovery (great for microservice architectures), and more.

Today Google announced Anthos, a new cloud service with the ability to manage Kubernetes clusters across multiple cloud providers, including AWS and Azure. This is super exciting news for Rancher. In Google Anthos, we see great alignment with Rancher’s vision. We believe Kubernetes will become the standardized infrastructure provided by all public and private clouds, and an enterprise Kubernetes platform must deliver multi-cluster, multi-cloud management.

Your Kubernetes clusters need ongoing attention to stay healthy and perform at their best. Rancher 2.2 monitors, manages, backs up, and restores Kubernetes clusters. It features new tools for controlling applications deployed across multiple clusters, plus a host of new flexibility around ongoing operations. With solutions for edge, multi-tenant, and multi-cloud clusters, Rancher eliminates redundant work, lightens the workload of operations teams, and increases the reliability of Kubernetes clusters and the applications they run.

Helm Charts have proven to be very useful for developers looking to create repeatable deployments of their applications. Rancher, with its built in Helm interface, allows developers to deploy their applications using Helm charts. This training will go over using Rancher’s pre-provisioned catalog apps, as well as demonstrate the creation of metadata for custom catalog apps to provide the Rancher questions interface to users who wish to deploy their own Helm Charts.

The Kubernetes community has made significant progress when it comes to easily deploying stateful services like databases. But what happens on Day 2? Day 2 operations are all about managing an application when things go wrong: nodes fail, networks are partitioned, a CVE comes out requiring a new version of Kubernetes to be deployed and all running apps upgraded.

As more organizations benefit from the increased availability and security offered by multi-cluster Kubernetes, the release of Submariner now enables containers in different clusters to establish a direct network connection with each other.

Kubernetes is pushing out of the data center into stores, networks and factories. DevOps teams are excited about Kubernetes because it provides predictable operations and a cloud-like provisioning experience on just about any infrastructure. For the last year Rancher Labs has been working with organizations to create a lightweight implementation of Kubernetes that is easy to operate and can run on x86 and ARM infrastructure without using more than 512 MB of memory.
