    Review ofRancherRancher
    1. Consume too much unnecessary resource by just running rancher agent alone;
    2. Hard to recover from system failure
    3. Bad performance of load balancing (compare to dokcer swarm built-in LB or others).

    The whole infrastructure is managed through Rancher. It provides a simple interface to all the underlying tools - Docker, HAProxy (automatically configures load balancer from the containers).
