phoenixNAP has announced the launch of SUSE Rancher servers within its Bare Metal Cloud (BMC) platform. This integration allows developers to deploy BMC servers with SUSE Rancher pre-installed for simplified deployment and administration of Kubernetes clusters.
BMC is a cloud-native ready Infrastructure as a Service platform that facilitates on-demand provisioning of physical machines via an API or Infrastructure as Code tools. Fully automated and highly customizable, BMC makes it easy to provision and manage non-virtualized single-tenant servers optimized for running DevOps workloads.
With SUSE Rancher on BMC, DevOps teams can now deploy, manage, and orchestrate Kubernetes clusters out-of-the-box. This integration allows BMC users to quickly and painlessly get started with Kubernetes while sidestepping the complexities of building containerized environments from scratch with different technologies.
Alex Belak, Director of Strategic Alliances at SUSE, said, “Bare Metal Cloud servers with SUSE Rancher enable development teams to set up a containerized environment faster, spend less time managing it, and realize greater operational efficiencies. We are excited to work with the phoenixNAP team on building a solution that will help organizations modernize their infrastructure and leverage the benefits of API-driven environments.”
