Installing Rancher into Kubernetes

Rancher is an application that runs inside of Kubernetes, so when deployed into an RKE cluster, Rancher uses the high availability infrastructure of Kubernetes (etcd and controlplane) to become highly available and resilient to failures.

Prior to version 2.4, Rancher can only be deployed into an RKE cluster.From 2.4 onward it can also be deployed into a K3s cluster.

If deployed into any other Kubernetes distribution or hosted provider solution, it will not operate reliably and is not eligible for support under the Rancher Enterprise Subscription.
