Overall Satisfaction with SUSE Rancher

We use SUSE Rancher in our organization for managing our Production environment which consists of multiple K8s Clusters. We also use Rancher to set up our clusters in multi-cloud environments like GCP/AWS. We do user authentication & authorization via Rancher's support for AD & LDAP. We also use Rancher Desktop for for a simplistic way of looking into our prod environment.
  • Kubernetes Cluster Management
  • RBAC Assignments
  • Act as a GUI in-front of K8s
  • Documentation could be improved.
  • No ability to see, edit and manage CRDs from the GUI.
  • Integration documents
  • Improved our time to market
  • Reduced costs in K8s management
  • Better visibility into our production environment

Rancher is best suited for: multi-cloud deployments, fleet management, integration with Git-Ops toolchain, stable release channels, better visibility into cluster through UI Multi-cluster monitoring, RBAC & Authentication with AD & LDAP, simplicity with which we are able to update multi-node clusters, RKE2 & no dependency on Docker, and no vendor lock-in.
