Rancher Government Solutions (RGS), the leader in open source, cloud-native container management, announced today the launch of its highly available and fully supported deployment of Rancher Kubernetes Engine 2 (RKE2) and Rancher Manager on AWS GovCloud Marketplace, to help Federal customers accelerate their Kubernetes journey in the cloud. This offering is immediately available for procurement on AWS GovCloud.
RKE2 and Rancher Manager for Production is a push button, no-code deployment of Rancher on AWS GovCloud which has been specifically configured to comply with the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) for SUSE Linux Enterprise 15, Rancher Manager and RKE2.
Rancher Manager and RKE2 are the only Kubernetes management platform and distribution with STIGs officially validated and published by DISA.
“This alliance is designed to accelerate secure container adaption and brings together the breadth of functionality that AWS provides with Rancher’s market leading Kubernetes platform, designed specifically for US Government customers,” said Ben Zifrony, VP of Channels and Alliances at RGS. “We enable customers to bring the combined advantages across hybrid environments with the full backing and support of Rancher Government Solutions.”
RGS recently released Rancher Manager-RKE2 Test Flight on AWS GovCloud, an unsupported, HA free trial of RKE2 and Rancher Manager for government customers.
Both releases further strengthen the partnership between RGS and AWS, allowing customers to optimize their cloud-native strategies and accelerate digital transformation efforts. By combining Rancher's expertise in Kubernetes management and AWS's cloud services, organizations can achieve greater agility, security, scalability, and efficiency.
Rancher Manager simplifies Kubernetes and lets government IT teams streamline cluster deployment on bare metal, private clouds, public clouds, vSphere and at the edge while securing them using global security policies.
