CEO & Co-founder
Rafay’s mission is to provide enterprise-grade Kubernetes management for today’s modern applications.
Years ago at a previous company our founders spent just as much time wrestling with Kubernetes 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 scalability, security, interoperability and ease of use. They felt there had to be a better way 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 value of these cutting-edge applications built on cloud, IoT and 5G technologies are at risk.
With a combination of enterprise-grade products and expert services, we make our customers’ Kubernetes infrastructure enterprise-ready. Because over the past many years Kubernetes has grown up and we believe that Kubernetes management should too.
Rafay is a proud member of the CNCF and a Certified Kubernetes Service Provider. Our customers can leverage our Certified Kubernetes solution, upstream K8s, and work hand-in-hand with our team of Certified Kubernetes Admins (CKAs).
The leadership team brings together dozens of years of experience from leading companies such as Akamai Technologies, MobileIron, Okta, Verisign and VMware.
