Rancher is an enterprise computing platform that runs Kubernetes on-premises, in the cloud, on embedded Internet of Things (IoT) devices, in low-resource locations, on Arm, and at the edge.
Rancher addresses the operational and security challenges of managing multiple Kubernetes clusters everywhere. For Arm, Rancher provides IT operators and development teams with integrated tools for building, deploying, and running cloud-native workloads on Arm-based devices that run the Rancher lightweight Kubernetes distribution (K3s). K3s can scale complex, containerized workloads running at the edge on demand. All of this makes K3s ideal for enterprises exploring 5G, Citizens Broadband Radio System (CBRS) wireless, big data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning use cases on Arm.
Perfect for edge
K3s is available to Arm developers as a certified Kubernetes distribution. It is designed for production workloads in unattended, resource-constrained, remote locations, or inside IoT appliances.
Simplified and secure
K3s is packaged as a single, less than 40MB, binary that reduces the dependencies and steps needed to install, run, and auto-update a production Kubernetes cluster.
Optimized for Arm
Both Armv7 and AArch64 are supported with binaries and multi-architecture images. K3s is great for developers working across a wide range of Arm hardware, including embedded, edge devices, and the server space.
