Visit Rancher at Scale15x


If you’re headed to
Pasadena, California this weekend for
Scale15x, come see us! We’re excited
to be presenting, and our talks are focused on practical knowledge for
running containers and Kubernetes in production. While Rancher makes it
easy to deploy and manage containers and Kubernetes, building that ease
of use has required specific expertise and disciplined thought on how
teams are incorporating them into their projects today. We’re headed to
Scale to share what we’ve learned, and to get feedback from you. For
those unfamiliar with the conference, the Southern California Linux
Expo, now in its fifteenth year, is one of the largest gatherings of
open source software and Linux users in the United States. Since its
inception, it’s grown to encompass four days of amazing technical and
community talks, stretched over a dozen tracks. Topics at the conference
now go way beyond Linux, and its content now includes security, storage,
and containers and virtualization. Here’s a rundown of where we’ll be:


Sessions by Rancher

Our team will be presenting at three talks, all with demos:

Refactoring to Microservices: A Practical Use

(Thursday, March 2, 11am): Many users we talk to don’t have the luxury
of building an entirely new application from scratch, for an entirely
new purpose. Instead, they grapple with incorporating containers and
microservices into existing applications and resources, and by
extension, questions around segmenting logic, identifying storage
solutions, and handling security. This talk covers those decision
points, and walks through an example of refactoring and containerizing
an existing application.

Building CNI plugins for Container

(Saturday, March 4, 1:30pm): The Container Network Interface (CNI)
is the new, de-facto standard for implementing plugins for container
runtimes, and this talk shows you how to implement one such plugin for

Orchestrating Orchestrators: Lessons Learned Managing Kubernetes at

(Saturday, March 4, 3pm): Kubernetes can be challenging to use, and
requires multiple binaries across its control plane plus additional
services outside of upstream Kubernetes for a successful deployment.
This talk goes beyond simple setup and configuration to discuss what’s
needed to really needed run and scale Kubernetes.

Rancher is also sponsoring and exhibiting at Scale. If you’re at the
conference, please visit us on the expo floor! We’ll be happy to answer
any questions you have about Kubernetes, Rancher or any aspect of using
containers in production. Not attending Scale? Then let us know where
we should meet you
! We
especially love meetups, workshops, and un-conferences where we can
really get to know our users and community, and we’re always adding new
events to our schedule. We’ll see you
