    Dear Viktor,
    We’re planning to build Kubernetes on-premise. We want to choose one stable and easy-to-use solution to bootstrap and manage Kubernetes cluster.
    Which platform do you recommend to use at present? Rancher, KubeSphere or other solution?

      If you’re looking for free options, I would suggest Rancher. If you prefer a commercial solution then OpenShift or Tanzu should do.

      Now, Rancher is great if you’re looking for a “click ops” type of solution. Those are indeed easier, but only at the start. Over time, the only way to make things reliable and easy is by writing code (including YAML) so I strongly suggest learning one of IaC tools (e.g. Ansible is OK for on-prem) and use Web UI to observe the state of things, and not to change the state.
