CRI-O support in Rancher/RKE

Are there any plans to support alternative container runtimes like CRI-O or maybe rkt?

We’re CentOS/RHEL and thus are “stuck” (if you want to use something supported by RH) on version 1.12.6. Since Red Hat is focusing heavily on CRI-O, that’s something we have been trying to explore.

Is this on anyone’s radar? It seems RKE would care about this but Rancher would be pretty runtime agnostic, wouldn’t it?

Yes we have this open and I’m slowly working on getting containerd running and supporting other runtimes for K8s as well.

That’s great, thank you! If you need help testing these stuff, please let me know. I’m very interesting in switching here.
