We believe a modern infrastructure deserves a modern operations solution
Years ago at a previous company our founders spent just as much time wrestling with Kubernetes operations 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 to manage the operations 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 cloud, IoT and 5G technologies are at risk.
With a combination of an enterprise-grade operations platform and expert services, we help enterprise Platform Teams create a modern operations practice to support their modern infrastructure. Because over the past many years modern, cloud infrastructures and technology have evolved rapidly and we believe that their required operations should too.
Rafay has completed the System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II Audit. Created by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SOC 2 is an internal controls report capturing how a company safeguards customer data and how well those controls are operating. These benchmarks are based on five Trust Services Criteria – privacy, confidentiality, security, availability, and processing integrity.
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.
