Overall Satisfaction with SUSE Rancher

We use SUSE Rancher to run Kubernetes production workloads.
We chose Rancher because:
+) It's easy to manage users and their permissions.
+) It's the most complete Kubernetes GUI on the market.
+) Developers don't need to know kubectl cli and Kubernetes YAML syntax to start deploying workblows.
+) It's very easy to upgrade Kubernetes versions with just a few mouse clicks.


  • User permissions
  • Kubernetes version upgrades
  • The most complete Kubernetes GUI on the market


  • No possibility to snapshot Projects. You can snapshot and restore the whole Kubernetes cluster, but not a Project or Namespace. For this, you have to use external tools.
  • You cannot detach the Rancher-created Kubernetes clusters from Rancher management.
  • Easy workflow deployment from Rancher GUI.
  • Easy user permission management.
  • You can connect Rancher to Active Directory for user management.
  • We can deploy faster.
  • We don't need to create separate virtual servers for each small project.
  • We patch server OSes without worrying that patches will break deployments.
SUSE Rancher has the most complete Kubernetes GUI.

Did implementation of SUSE Rancher go as expected?


Would you buy SUSE Rancher again?


SUSE Rancher is well suited if you want a stable system to start fast Kubernetes adoption. You can learn a long time, you don't need to be a Kubernetes expert in the beginning. I would like to be able to backup Rancher namespaces and projects. Now it's possible to backup only whole clusters.
