Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Arm-based Compute Instances to be Supported by SUSE Rancher
Oracle and SUSE have been working together closely to expand the supported compute instances on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). SUSE Rancher will become the only multi-cluster management solution to provision Kubernetes clusters on OCI Arm-based instances by delivering support for Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) on OCI Ampere A1 instances. SUSE’s own Keith Basil said, “Customers are increasingly demanding multi-architecture support within the cloud-native environments—Oracle Cloud Infrastructure introduces innovation with the Ampere A1 Compute platform on this front. Our goal is to extend our Arm support even deeper with the new release of SUSE Rancher by adding support for provisioning multi-arch OKE clusters. When it comes to Arm, we simply want to say yes to most use cases—be it with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, on premises or at the edge.”Robert Ronan, Principal Product Manager – OCI Developer Services at Oracle, said, “This is exciting news for the partnership as SUSE Rancher becomes the only multi-cluster management solution to provision Kubernetes clusters on Arm architecture at scale through OKE.”
