Rafay enables developers to automate the distribution, intent-based scaling and applications management and operations of containerized applications across public and private clouds, and service provider networks. Rafay’s platform is built around foundational elements that together deliver an optimal abstraction layer across disparate infrastructure. Rafay makes it easy for developers to scale and operate applications across any number of locations or regions, including dynamic origin delivery for interactive, personalized online experiences.
Consumed as a service, Rafay’s platform eliminates the need to build an in-house platform or developing any specialized compute distribution capabilities. The platform significantly simplifies the deployment of containerized apps anywhere and makes it easy for developers to:
— Automate operations of self-hosted container clusters across any number of regions in any number of public/private cloud, hosting or service provider environments.
— Scale clusters within a region or across a global footprint based on intent-based performance policies or geographical requirements.
— Manage a global, cross-cloud footprint through a single pane of glass while leveraging built-in pipelines to collect application logs & metrics, along with system and application health.
— Leverage built-in pipelines to distribute container images, application configuration & state, crypto artifacts, and a variety of other data sets needed by the app for ongoing operations.
From deploying a simple web crawler across multiple regions to running a cloud gaming platform across multiple public clouds, to operating a ride-share platform, the level of specialization needed to build and maintain a unified distribution platform is very high. This is why we created Rafay Systems; to remove the burden and cost of do-it-yourself approaches and provide a proven platform for running containerized apps anywhere.
