Vishal Biyani, InfraCloud CTO, was a speaker at DevOpsDays India 2016. He presented a talk on how Rancher – an open source container management platform makes Kubernetes management easier. The talk will demo key Kubernetes features which make containers production ready using Rancher. Talk also demonstrate native Kubernetes support in Rancher which makes the entire container operation enterprise ready.
Kubernetes is Cluster resource manager and leader in container orchestration frameworks for deploying containers in production. A year ago the discussion was focussed more on Docker but these days the focus is container orchestration. Containers are been widely accepted now as unit of workload and deployment, but now people are uncovering the challenges in running these containers in production. Just containerising an application is not enough, given the ephemeral containers – service discovery, monitoring, logging are the challenges that need to be solved.
