Rancher Government Solutions and The Linux Foundation Partner to Accelerate Digital Transformation with World Class Cloud Native Training and Certification Programs

WASHINGTON, November 21, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the leading provider of Kubernetes solutions to the U.S. Government, Rancher Government Solutions (RGS) announced today a strategic partnership with the world’s leading open source technology consortium, the Linux Foundation. Together they will deliver the entire portfolio of e-Learning classes that the Linux Foundation offers as part of select RGS support subscriptions.

"Cloud Native technology like Kubernetes require new skills. We are committed to enabling our customers to build those skills as part of their application modernization journey," said Ben Zifrony, RVP Channels and Alliances at RGS. "As the use of open source software continues to grow in the federal government, RGS is leading with continuous innovation and enhanced security."

The open source paradigm is designed to accelerate innovation by making software original code freely available, to be modified and improved to the benefit of the entire community of users. Its impact only continues to grow, democratizing technology today and driving the innovation of tomorrow.

"We are proud to announce our new partnership with RGS," said Clyde Seepersad, SVP, and General Manager of Training & Certification at the Linux Foundation. "Partnering with RGS to support the U. S. Government in their adoption of open source through secure tools and training is critically important."

The use of proprietary, monolithic architectures can lead to vendor lock in and limit innovation, agility and the use of cloud native technologies. The U.S. Government’s drive to modernize the way it builds, secures, and deploys applications has led to the rapid growth and popularity of containerized applications that are orchestrated with Kubernetes.
