SUSE, the global leader in innovative, reliable and enterprise-friendly open source solutions, today announced the integration of SUSE Rancher with Harvester, forming a hyperconverged solution (HCI) Comprehensive open source that accelerates digital transformation by enabling businesses to consolidate, simplify and modernize their existing IT operations. Since its acquisition of Rancher Labs in December 2020, SUSE has strengthened its commitment to drive innovation in its cloud-specific portfolio by investing in open source projects such as Harvester, Epinio, Kubewarden, Opni and Rancher Desktop. All of these platforms will be demonstrated at SUSE booth P3 at KubeCon North America.
Open source hyperconverged solutions for use cases designed specifically for on-premises and edge cloud
The star feature of SUSE at KubeCon North America is the integration of SUSE Rancher with Harvester, a solution that unifies the delivery of virtual machines and containers without the complexities, lockdowns and overheads imposed by former suppliers. Harvester is designed to leverage the continuous delivery capabilities of SUSE Rancher, powered by GitOps, to potentially manage thousands of hyperconverged solution clusters running a mix of virtual machines and containerized workloads, from core to edge. SUSE Rancher users can now create Kubernetes clusters on Harvester VMs. Harvester, meanwhile, can

“By providing free and uncontrolled access to open source projects like Harvester, we are accelerating digital transformation,” said Sheng Liang , president of engineering and innovation at SUSE. “Additionally, by investing in these projects, we are providing customers with the technology they need to bridge the gap between traditional and cloud computing. Harvester is just one example of the technology provided when we invest in open source innovation. ”
Simplified Kubernetes Management and Application Delivery
True to its philosophy of rapid innovation, SUSE also announced a number of additional open source projects, including:
- Rancher Desktop : Installing Kubernetes is designed to be straightforward, but it may require additional knowledge if a business needs to reset a cluster to test an application in different versions of Kubernetes. Rancher Desktop makes it much easier to run Kubernetes and Docker workloads on a local development PC or Mac by removing the startup barrier.
- Epinio : Designed to allow engineers to write code that will be deployed on Kubernetes without having to spend time or money learning a new platform, Epinio allows users to pass an application from source code at deployment. It does this by providing the correct abstractions to developers while allowing operators to continue working in an environment they are comfortable with.
- Opni : Observability data is a part of every Kubernetes environment, but few use it effectively to gather available information about the health of their operating systems and potential downtime of clusters and applications. SUSE is uniquely positioned to detect anomalies by applying artificial intelligence to Kubernetes through Opni, which can detect logarithmic and metric anomalies for Kubernetes clusters.
- Kubewarden : Security remains a major barrier to Kubernetes adoption, and SUSE’s latest project, Kubewarden, is designed to help remove this barrier. Kubewarden offers much more flexibility compared to other solutions in today’s market as it allows policies to be written in any language that can be compiled on WebAssemblies (WASM), including OPA’s rego language. It allows operations and governance teams to codify the rules of what can and cannot be performed in their environments. Policies are distributed through container registries, and workloads and policies can be distributed and secured in the same way. Ultimately, this helps eliminate bottlenecks.
