Rancher Deployment Strategies - Hub & Spoke

In this deployment scenario, there is a single Rancher control plane managing compute resources across the globe. The control plane would be run in an HA configuration, and there would be impact due to latencies.


  • Environments could have nodes and network connectivity across regions.
  • Single control plane interface to view/see all regions and environments.
  • Cons:

  • Subject to network latencies
  • If control plane goes out global provisioning of new services is unavailable until restored.
