We just recently discovered Rancher, and it is an absolutely awesome platform! Really great job to all the great people behind this project!
I would really like to deploy Rancher in our production environment and got a question of where does Rancher Master / Manager need to be deployed?
We manage multiple production clusters for different independent projects and for simplicity and convenience sake would really like to have a single point of login and managing all different environments and projects. Is it possible to setup management node to be remote from all the worker nodes?
I.e. we have a few projects that all have setup similar to this:
Project A - wordpress-based shopping site with:
1 cache servers
Porject B - meteor based shopping aggregator:
1 db + cache
Project C - magento based shopping site:
2 db + redis cache instances
All 3 projects are on different dedicated servers in different hosting companies and all 3 are completely independent from each other.
Is it possible to have a management node setup (let’s say) on our office server and manage all clusters independently from each other via public internet. Or will it cause problems like public / private networking within each cluster, etc.?
