About Rafay

We believe managing a modern infrastructure and accelerated computing deserve a modern PaaS solution

Why We’re Here

Years ago at a previous company our founders spent just as much time wrestling with Kubernetes and leveraging cloud computing than they did developing the software product they were selling. At that time first-generation and do-it-yourself (DIY) Kubernetes solutions entered the market in an attempt to help, but they just didn’t solve core issues related to automation, security, visibility and governance. They felt there had to be a better way — a PaaS way — to manage CPU and GPU-based workloads for their modern infrastructure and so they decided to build one by starting Rafay Systems.

All of us at Rafay believe that modern applications can power a better future and they deserve a mature, battle-tested and easy way of managing them. Without that, the promises and business value of these cutting-edge applications built on the cloud are at risk.

With a combination of an enterprise-grade operations platform and expert services, we help enterprise architects and platform teams manage their modern infrastructure. Because over the past many years modern, cloud infrastructures and technology have evolved rapidly and we believe that their architecture should too.
