Standardization Suite

Are Your Environments
Up To Spec?

Centrally enforce the latest addons, policies and cost controls across all clusters and landing zones.

What is the Standardization Suite?

Increasing cloud complexity and expensive, bespoke tooling are increasing operational and business risk.

Rafay’s product suite for Standardization enables platform teams to standardize every aspect of a cloud environment’s configuration – cluster & environment configs, resource allocation, approved addons, access controls, security policies, and much more – in one central place … and then automate the prevention of configuration drift, and ongoing management of those configurations, to keep these environments within spec so developers don’t have to.

Standardize clusters, namespaces, and landing zones to deploy them in minutes

Rafay streamlines the curation of standardized Kubernetes resources and cloud environments for developers, made accessible through interfaces such as Backstage or SNOW. Developers get rapid access to the compute they need, and selective control over configurations.

Ensure security and isolation between cluster tenants

Rafay enables multi-tenancy for cost reduction and operational efficiency by integrating RBAC, preventing noisy neighbors, and reducing security and performance risks via network isolation policies. Internal customers can safely share infrastructure across multiple clusters and environments.

Unify visibility across every cloud account

Rafay provides visibility across cloud accounts, including active environments, duration of activity, user attribution, and compliance status. Platform teams get necessary information to make informed decisions and maintain operational efficiency.

Manage add-ons through a central catalog, and put compliance on autopilot

Rafay provides an add-on catalog, and centrally manages add-on and policy lifecycle across all clusters. Platform teams can create approved configs and software bill of materials (SBOMs) at will, maintaining compliance across the org and addressing issues in minutes.

Centralize access controls, policies, and audit logs to protect critical cloud infrastructure

Rafay enables zero trust cluster access, centralized OPA gatekeeper and network policy management, and aggregated audit logging. Integrated role-based access control tied to corporate identity providers ensures duty separation and bolsters security.

What do platform teams get with the Standardization Suite?

By centralizing, standardizing, and automating cloud infrastructure configurations across all public, private/datacenter, or edge deployments, Rafay enables platform engineering teams to provide cloud environments and Kubernetes infrastructure immediately, as a service to developers, ops, and SRE teams – within golden paths they define.

Cloud Migration

Adding or migrating clouds can be expensive and time consuming. Standardized processes and tooling can reduce cloud lock-in, making it faster and easier to add, migrate, or rebalance cloud investments.

Cloud Reliability

Cloud misconfigs lead to lengthy MTTR, driving the cost and duration of outages upwards. Standardization leads to greater reliability and faster incident investigation times, lowering the cost of outages.

Cognitive Load

Developers sometimes fall behind on maintenance, leading to security policy and version control issues. Automated standards let them be productive without worrying about infrastructure details.

Turnkey Lifecycle Management and Workflow Automation of Kubernetes, Everywhere

Rafay’s Public Cloud and Private Cloud suites streamline lifecycle operations across cluster fleets, like in-place upgrades, scaling and policy updates, with automated workflows, saving time and effort. With blueprints, integrated validation, and zero-trust debugging, specialist knowledge isn’t needed for common operations across clouds.
