St Johann im Pongau

This week we had the opportunity to be in St. Johann, a small city in the state of Salzburg in Austria and a prime skiing destination, to deliver a small workshop on Kubernetes and Rancher.

Although St. Johann is a very touristy destination, even outside of winter, prices were surprisingly low and the food was exceptionally good.

We’ll definitely try to come back!

Rancher v2.1 introduced new improvements to Kubernetes cluster operations and app management, as well as a migration path for users moving from Rancher’s Cattle orchestrator introduced in 1.x to Rancher Kubernetes.

You can also use Rancher 2.x to quickly set-up managed clusters in a hosted Kubernetes provider, such as Google GKE.

The following Kubernetes providers are supported in Rancher 2.1:

  • Google GKE (Google Container Engine)
