SUSE Rancher 2.6, the latest release of SUSE‘s open source enterprise Kubernetes management platform, is now available. It features major updates across the platform that will help enterprise customers better manage their growing Kubernetes environments.
Enhancements include a redesigned platform experience complete with a new crisp user interface with improved logic-based workflows, full lifecycle management of hosted Kubernetes clusters in Microsoft AKS and Google GKE alongside existing Amazon EKS capabilities, plus new security, risk and compliance features.
SUSE Rancher 2.6 is the first major Rancher-related release from SUSE since its acquisition of Rancher Labs in December 2020.
Professionals who build within or manage growing environments now have access to a new crisp user interface and rearchitected workflows across the platform. This reduction in visual noise, redesigned dashboards and improved single- and multi-cluster management experience within a single pane of glass enables users to save time and resources needed to manage the operational requirements of clusters regardless of where they are hosted.
Users with multi-cloud environments can now easily manage, secure and operate their hosted clusters within SUSE Rancher. Existing hosted clusters can also be imported and managed with the same proficiency level of SUSE Rancher deployed clusters, giving users true interoperability across their multi-cloud environments by empowering them to freely choose the right infrastructure and technology solutions fit for their organization.
