Rancher Desktop is a great all-in-one desktop environment.
When running it with the Docker back-end you have all in one environment for development and run-time.
For a server, K3s (https://k3s.io) is my platform of choice. It is production ready and easy to deploy.
For Kubernetes, you always need a registry to pull images.
As soon you need custom images, you will need a registry to upload and download your image.
K3s allows you to configure private registries.
You could use any registry. I am just running the registry Docker image on Podman in my environment.
