Cloud Automation Platform

Self-Service Automation of Cloud Infrastructure Workflows

Every modernizing enterprise has complicated cloud infrastructure, and they’re building automation to hide its complexity from its users. But they shouldn’t have to. Rafay’s Cloud Automation Platform provides an automation solution for platform teams, bridging the complexity gap so your business can focus on rapid innovation rather than cloud management.

"The big draw was that you could centralize the lifecycle management & operations."

Built for Platform Teams

With Benefits Felt Across the Organization

Autonomy to cloud users

Move fast and innovate when dependable, self-service access to cloud resources is available to anyone who needs it for development or testing.

Control to platform engineers

Manage self-service workflows across a hybrid cloud environment, ensuring that all compliance, security, and financial requirements are met.

Efficiency to operations

Increase service availability by automating cloud management processes and standardizing configurations across all teams from a single console.

How Our Cloud Automation Project Works

Rafay’s single SaaS-based* cloud controller manages thousands of Kubernetes clusters and cloud environments with ease, while allowing software-defined isolation across any department, business group, or geography. It drops seamlessly into existing environments, plugs into your existing Internal Developer Platforms, CI/CD and GitOps pipelines, and Infrastructure as Code repositories, and automates operations immediately to make cloud workflows faster and more efficient.

Rafay works across multi-cloud landscapes hosted publicly or privately, natively supporting their Kubernetes distributions and other services. It even dramatically simplifies the management overhead of applications and services deployed at the edge, or in remote locations.

* A self-hosted version is also available.

Foundational Capabilities for Cloud Automation

DevOps Toolchain Integrations

Rafay connects to developers’ preferred tools, add-ons, and services, so their workflows remain unimpacted and are seamlessly enhanced.

IaC Integration (e.g. Terraform)

Rafay connects with IaC repositories (such as Terraform), using them as a source of truth for delivering on self-service infrastructure requests.

Zero-trust RBAC

Rafay connects natively into Backstage instances in order to accelerate delivery of templated cloud configurations as a service to cloud users.

DP / Backstage Integrations

Backstage instances and Integrated Developer Platforms, or IDPs, facilitate “golden paths” for developers to reduce their cognitive load as they code.

Automated Fleet Operations

Rafay makes it easy to create repeatable, automated workflows (such as cluster upgrades) that can be applied to multiple resources securely and reliably.

Templates & Drift Detection

Rafay provides centralized visibility and automatic drift detection across cloud templates being used across all teams and clouds.

GitOps Integrations with Write Back

Rafay ties bidirectionally into GitOps repositories and pipelines, ensuring that configuration changes are properly controlled and tracked.

Cost Optimization & Chargeback

Rafay allows platform teams to track, report, and provide transparency into cloud costs, so teams across the org are accountable for their spending.

Dashboards & Monitoring

Rafay provides centralized monitoring of all cloud resources under management, so platform teams can easily track resource consumption, health and cost.
