Before using Rancher Prime on Azure as a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) offering, you need the following resources, information, and tools:

  • A Rancher-compatible AKS cluster. For more details, see the Rancher support matrix. You can only install the Rancher Prime PAYG offering onto clusters in regions where AKS and Azure Container Apps are available. See the Azure documentation for details. Refer to Creating an AKS cluster for bringing up an AKS cluster to install Rancher Prime PAYG.
  • An ingress installed on the AKS cluster, so that Rancher is accessible outside the cluster. See the Rancher documentation for instructions on deploying Ingress-NGINX on an AKS cluster.
  • The Rancher hostname. The hostname must be a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), and its corresponding IP address must be resolvable from a public DNS. See the Rancher documentation for instructions on how to set up DNS.
