Rancher Reviews


An easy-to-use interface provides a single point of management for all the clusters, along with centralized policy controls and monitoring. End-users can easily deploy new clusters with the click of a button. Moreover, the platform allows users various benefits such as easy configuration of networking and storage drivers, repeatable deployments of custom environments, and others. Furthermore, managing and deploying applications is easy—the public catalog delivers more than 90 popular Docker applications and Helm is included out of the box. With over 60 million downloads and enterprise-class support, Rancher has quickly become the platform of choice for running containers in production. RancherOS is a small and easy-to-use operating system to run Docker in production. It is comparatively smaller than traditional operating systems, as it only includes the services which are necessary.


Rancher Labs offers an innovative and fully integrated set of solutions in the CaaS market, including Rancher and RancherOS. Rancher is a complete container management platform that makes it easy to adopt, run, and manage Docker containers and multiple Kubernetes clusters.

RANCHER LABS Presence in Containers as a Service
Rancher Labs’ organic growth strategy is focused on broad market adoption via downloads of Rancher, which is 100% open source, whereas, inorganic growth is driven by a global sales organization, with offices in the US, UK, China, and Japan. In addition, Rancher Labs has an aggressive business development strategy which focuses on strengthening its foothold across the globe. The company focuses on building strategic technology partners and further develops the robust Rancher ecosystem. Recently, in October 2016, the company announced the launch of the Rancher Partner Network. It is a comprehensive partner program focused on expanding the company’s global reach, increase its enterprise adoption, and provide partners and customers with tools for success. As part of its inorganic growth strategy, Rancher Labs has been consistently enhancing its product portfolio. For instance, in April 2017, Rancher Labs partnered with Docker to integrate Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) Basic into its Rancher container management platform. Using Rancher dashboard, users can easily access the usability, security, and portability benefits of Docker EE. This partnership would allow Rancher Labs to deliver Docker's enterprise-grade security, management, and orchestration capabilities.
