Accelerating Dev Test Cycles for Kubernetes Apps With ngrok and Rancher

DevOps practices and Kubernetes are critical for modernizing your applications, but testing apps, deploying them in production Kubernetes environments and managing Kubernetes itself can be challenging. Developers need secure ingress for their applications and services in test/dev environments to test integrations with webhook providers and external APIs as well as preview them with fellow developers. Once development and testing is complete, these need to be transitioned to production.

These tasks become even more daunting when apps need to be delivered across a multi-cluster, multi-cloud environment. Developers spend a lot of time wrangling networking and Kubernetes primitives like DNS, TLS certificates, IP and subnet routing, ELBs and VPC routing, just to name a few. That’s where Rancher and ngrok come in.

In this Techstrong Learning Experience, the ngrok and Rancher teams will show you how to accelerate feature velocity by overcoming the complexity of delivering applications running in Kubernetes.

You'll learn:

  • Best practices for deploying and managing multi-cluster Kubernetes
  • Boosting developer productivity with instant ingress
  • Eliminating platform lock-in with ngrok Ingress Controller for Kubernetes
  • Simplifying application delivery from dev/test to production
