Rancher Labs Launches Partner Program for its Container Management

Rancher Labs, a start-up specializing in container management software, is launching a partner program designed to expand the company’s global reach. The program will support consultancies and systems integrators, as well as resellers and service providers worldwide, with initial partners from North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

“Community interest in Rancher’s open and easy-to-use container management platform has shattered expectations, with over a million downloads and over ten million Rancher nodes launched since this year alone,” said Shannon Williams, co-founder and vice president of sales and marketing at Rancher Labs. “To help us meet demand within the enterprise, we’re partnering with leading DevOps consultancies, system integrators and service providers around the world. We’re excited and humbled by the strong interest we’ve seen from the partner community, and we’re looking forward to working with our partners to help make containers a reality for our joint customers.”


Rancher Ships its Container Management Platform

Rancher Labs, a start-up based in Cupertino, California, released its open-source container management software.

The Rancher software is designed to simplify the deployment and management of containers in production enterprise applications. The software lets users select from multiple container orchestration frameworks such as Kubernetes and Docker Swarm, while maintaining a single management experience.  Rancher implements a cloud-agnostic infrastructure services layer that works across any public or private cloud, or traditional data center. The platform works across cloud and data center boundaries, and its load balancing and persistent storage services function uniformly on any computing resources.

Rancher said its solution allows organizations to gain visibility, manage policies and exert control of containers and infrastructure spread across different teams within an organization.  It also enables IT to improve deployment reliability, orchestrate software upgrades, and improve the utilization of infrastructure resources.

“Since announcing our beta product less than a year ago, Rancher Labs has experienced incredible demand, as well as received encouraging and helpful feedback and community support for this open platform which has enabled us to make meaningful enhancements to Rancher,” said Sheng Liang, CEO, Rancher Labs. “Now, with well over a million downloads, Rancher has quickly become the platform of choice for teams serious about running containers in production.”
