We have officially released the first version of the NeuVector UI Extension for Rancher! This release is an exciting first step for integrating NeuVector security monitoring and enforcement into the Rancher Manager UI. The security vision for SUSE and its enterprise container management (ECM) products has always been to enable easy deployment, monitoring and management of a secure cloud native stack.

In 2.8, Rancher added a new field to the GlobalRoles resource (inheritedClusterRoles), which allows users to grant permissions on all downstream clusters. With the addition of this field, it is now possible to create a custom global role that grants user-configurable permissions on all current and future downstream clusters. This post will outline how to create this role using the new Rancher Kubernetes API, which is currently the best-supported method to use this new feature.

It is our pleasure to introduce the first officially supported API with Rancher v2.8: the Rancher Kubernetes API, or RK-API for short. Since the introduction of Rancher v2.0, a publicly supported API has been one of our most requested features. The Rancher APIs, which you may recognize as v3 (Norman) or v1 (Steve), have never been officially supported and can only be automated using our Terraform Provider.

The Rancher by SUSE team has been dedicated to fortifying the Rancher platform to be the most interoperable and adaptable platform for our customers and the wider community over the past year. In late 2022, we introduced the ‘Extensions Catalog.’, and earlier this year at KubeCon Europe in Amsterdam, we revealed our Rancher UI Extensions framework. Continuing this momentum, we are thrilled to announce the release of Rancher 2.8 and Rancher Prime 2.0.

Kubernetes and cloud-native technologies have become widely adopted in the last decade, making them ubiquitous. This has significantly contributed to the open-source movement and highlighted the importance of policymaking in the successful adoption and sustainability of the ecosystem. However, understanding and navigating the complex legal landscape on the path to production can be challenging, particularly for developers seeking to understand the ecosystem. That’s why, in this episode of Rancher Live, we will take a slight detour from talking tech to deconstructing some key policy issues associated with open-source software with OpenUK's CEO, Amanda Brock.

This newly-updated, in-depth guidebook provides a detailed overview of the features and functionality of the new Rancher: an open-source enterprise Kubernetes platform.

Rancher is a complete software stack for teams adopting containers. It addresses the operational and security challenges of managing multiple Kubernetes clusters, while providing DevOps teams with integrated tools for running containerized workloads.

At Rancher Labs we love containers, and love the experience they bring to developers. We love their portability, ease-of-use, and rich ecosystem support. We believe that Kubernetes is on the verge of turning from developer’s favorite tool to the de-facto large-scale production platform. So we have built tools that help organizations run their applications and services on herds of containers that can roam across Kubernetes clusters and clouds.

One Platform for Everyone who uses Kubernetes:

  • Multi-Cluster Management: Rancher was built to manage Kubernetes everywhere it runs. It can easily deploy new clusters from scratch, launch EKS, GKE and AKS clusters, or even import existing Kubernetes clusters.
  • Unified Operations: With Rancher, ops teams have the same control and management tools across dev, staging and production Kubernetes clusters.
  • Centralized Policy Management: Ensure container security is implemented consistently with centralized security policies that can be applied across every Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.
  • Authentication and RBAC: Rancher connects with Active Directory, LDAP and other authentication systems to ensure users only have the appropriate access to Kubernetes.
  • Intuitive Interface: Rancher gives users native access to the Kubernetes API and CLI, but also provides an intuitive UI for managing pods, ingress policies, storage, secrets and service discovery.
  • Integrated Tooling: DevOps teams can connect Rancher with existing tools, or choose to use integrated deployments of monitoring, logging, alerting and CI/CD.

Manage Kubernetes Everywhere with Rancher.
