A MicroPaaS is a lightweight framework that bridges the gap between IT infrastructure and the developer. Its modular architecture delivers a fully integrated experience from pipeline to operations without taking over the cluster. Built for multi-tenancy, a MicroPaaS like Rio will run on any Kubernetes cluster in any substrate...even on your laptop.
Rio creates an experience on Istio and Knative and presents an easy way to manage every aspect of your application.
Rio installs into any Kubernetes cluster and handles all the wiring for common services like Istio for service mesh, Knative for creating event functions, and Prometheus for monitoring.
With a few simple commands, Rio can implement Git-based continuous delivery; help optimize routing for your apps; give you canary, A/B, and blue/green deployments; monitor HTTP traffic inside your service mesh; deliver smart autoscaling; and more.
Rio helps you deliver the best possible application release experience to your users.
When using Rio, your apps launch with the most secure network configuration possible.
In this video quickstart, we show you how easy it is to install Rio and start deploying and upgrading services without having to manage Kubernetes, Istio, or Knative. Watch and see how easy it is.
At Rancher Labs, all of our products are focused on making Kubernetes simple to use for everybody.
We saw how people were frustrated by the effort required to manage tools like Istio and Knative, so we built Rio. Now developers can deploy, manage, scale, and version their applications with a few simple commands.
