For the combination of 5G and Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) to be truly useful, Edge infrastructure must be easily consumable by developers – the Edge needs to be Programmable.
Rafay’s platform is the world’s first implementation of a developer-friendly Programmable Edge™. The platform automates the distribution, intent-based scaling and applications management and operations of containerized applications across clouds and networks. By leveraging Rafay’s platform, operators can empower developers to deliver rich, interactive experiences to end users without the burden, time, cost and complexity of building and maintaining a custom platform across distributed compute resources.
Rafay’s platform can be deployed across telecommunications and service providers networks, Internet-exchange points, colocation and data center environments, and public clouds. Rafay’s platform is the fastest path for operators to deliver Programmable Edge offerings to developers, driving net-new revenue streams.
Rafay’s platform is built around a number of foundational elements that collectively provide the optimal abstraction layer that can span disparate infrastructure within and across operator networks. Rafay’s platform 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.
