About this event

Welcome to our meetup for Kubernetes and Cloud Native Computing Louisville!

Jason van Brackel, Director of Community from Rancher will give a presentation on k3s, With a 40MB binary footprint and an easy installation process, K3s is the perfect Kubernetes distribution for working out on the edge. During this presentation, we will discuss k3s architecture, compare it to upstream Kubernetes, and demo the setup of a k3s platform. We also introduce K3os, a lightweight Linux distribution that launches in seconds and is the easiest way to launch and manage k3s.

About Rancher

In 2014, containers were quickly becoming the de-facto large-scale production platform for application deployment. In founding Rancher Labs, the initial goal was to provide organizations with the tools needed to take full advantage of container technology and provide the best possible experience for running Docker in production. Fast-forward to the present day, the ecosystem changed and so did we. We are more confident than ever that containers and Kubernetes will enable a new era of application portability. Rancher is a major step forward in open source container management, accelerating the adoption of Kubernetes for organizations globally.
