Washington, D.C. – BoxBoat Technologies, LLC (BoxBoat), a leading DevOps and Cloud Transformation Consultancy, announces founding membership in the Rancher Platinum Partner Program. Rancher is an industry-leading Kubernetes platform designed for both large enterprises and open source projects. BoxBoat is excited to help companies accelerate their adoption of Rancher for their containerization projects.

Kubernetes provides an industry-tested orchestration capability for container-based applications. As the second-most active open source project on GitHub and the first project graduated by the Cloud Native Compute Foundation, Kubernetes is quickly becoming the standard for container orchestration. Rancher simplifies the deployment, management, and operation of both cloud and on-premise Kubernetes clusters.

“The market opportunity for container management software is enormous,” said Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO, Rancher Labs. “The Platinum Partner Program helps us expand our enterprise reach while creating new opportunities for our partners to help customers successfully run Kubernetes everywhere.”

“BoxBoat specializes in helping organizations integrate containerization and DevSecOps into their software development and deployment workflows,” said Tim Hohman, BoxBoat CEO. “Utilizing Rancher enables us to provide the most effective Kubernetes experience to our clients, to help them successfully deploy highly available container-based applications on-premise and to the cloud.”

“We approached BoxBoat as a Kubernetes training partner and quickly realized they could be a valuable hands-on asset in delivering our first cloud-native platform,” said Dan Stough, Product Owner at Keysight Technologies. “The BoxBoat team not only had the bleeding-edge technology experience, but were able to deliver Rancher-based infrastructure and improved CI/CD tooling that met our unique business requirements. Our engagement with BoxBoat was key in accelerating our product development cycle.”
