Kubernetes Operations Features for Amazon EKS

Rafay’s deep Amazon EKS integration means you have one console to manage the operations of your Amazon EKS clusters and applications across AWS regions and in data centers

Centralized Multi-Cluster Management

Deploy, view, manage, and upgrade all of your Amazon EKS (& EKS-A) clusters in any AWS region using Rafay’s self-service workflows

Native GitOps Pipelines

Drive standardized EKS cluster and application deployments and updates using Git as the source of truth

Standardize with EKS Cluster Blueprints & Templates

Use Rafay to easily create and apply cluster blueprints across your fleet of EKS and EKS-A clusters across Amazon, data centers and the edge

Intent-Based Application Deployments

Intelligently deploy your AWS applications where they are needed based on policy, labels, namespaces, geography, etc.

Spot Instance Optimization

Save costs using spot instances for worker nodes. Admins can leverage built-in Rafay workflows for instance-type diversification, automated instance interruption handling, and leveraging auto-scaling groups.

Nodes and Nodegroups

Easily provision both managed and unmanaged nodegroups, and manage nodegroup scaling up and down to zero, as needed

Secure Zero-Trust Access

Manage EKS clusters without inbound access to VPCs or without setting up bastions, while keeping EKS control planes private. Rafay leverages mutually authenticated TLS channels that are spawned dynamically and are tied to enterprise identity systems

SSO & Role-based Access Control

Rafay supports secure AWS credentials as well as delegated IAM capabilities for one-click provisioning/scaling/deprovisioning workflows

Add-On Policies

Easily configure add-on policies for services such as Amazon ECR, AppMesh, ALB Ingress Controller, etc., through Rafay

Full Amazon IAM Support

Rafay fully supports AWS IAM Roles for EKS cluster lifecycle management and doesn't require Amazon secrets to be managed/secured separately. The use of AWS IAM roles is strongly recommended by AWS.

Integrate & Automate

Comprehensive automation for Amazon can be quickly developed by using either our command line interface (RCTL) utility or REST APIs

Centralized Logging & Monitoring

Rafay provides built-in, detailed audit trails for administrative activities across all EKS clusters as well as intuitive, integrated monitoring, visualization and alerts for all EKS and EKS-A clusters under management
