Managed Kubernetes Platform

Enterprise-Grade Kubernetes Management, Finally

A SaaS-first Kubernetes management solution with enterprise-class scalability, security and interoperability for managing apps across public clouds, data centers & edge

SaaS-First Approach

Realize all the benefits of the cloud including instant scalability, automatic updates and the lowest TCO for Kubernetes management with Rafay’s SaaS-first Managed Kubernetes Platform (MKP). Companies requiring air-gapped deployments for compliance and regulatory reasons can deploy MKP on-premises.

Zero-Trust Architecture

The MKP DOES NOT require inbound access to your Kubernetes clusters. No need to poke holes in firewalls or set up SSH access or reverse-tunnels. Zero-Trust Kubectl Access governs Kubectl activity by end-users as well as CI/CD systems with role-based access control (RBAC) and auditing of all actions.

Scalability & Fleet Management

Why manage clusters one by one? It’s time-consuming and prone to errors that result in non-standard environments. With the MKP, you can manage your fleet collectively. Create, deploy, operate, monitor, upgrade and retire 1 or 1,000+ clusters just as easily across any number of multiple, heterogeneous regions, clouds and environments.

Deep Distro Interoperability

Don’t get locked into a single Kubernetes distro across clouds. Freely use GKE in GCP, AKS in Azure, and EKS in AWS. Avoid vendor lock-in and preserve your company’s ability to deploy, manage & move containerized workloads between cloud, data center, and the edge.

Enterprise Integrations

Your Kubernetes deployments can’t be considered enterprise-class without integrating them with the Kubernetes, security and governance systems enterprises use most. Rafay includes integrations with Okta, AzureAD, Jenkins, Hashicorp Terraform & Vault, Datadog and a number of others that are just a few clicks away.

World-class Services & Support

When blogs and community resources aren’t enough, partner with Rafay’s deep bench of certified Kubernetes experts to jump-start & customize your Kubernetes journey.

Day 1 and Day 2 Kubernetes Management Capabilities in a Single Platform

Rafay delivers a production-ready Kubernetes management platform that streamlines ongoing operations as you scale

Centralized Multi-Cluster Management

Deploy, manage and upgrade your Kubernetes clusters from a single console across all of your on-premises, bare metal, cloud, and edge environments.

Automated Lifecycle Management

Users can quickly provision and start using CNCF-compliant Kubernetes clusters in any environment. Cluster updates and upgrades are seamless with no downtime.

MFA, SSO & Role-Based Access Control

The MKP easily integrates with enterprise-class SSO solutions such as Okta, Ping One and AzureAD

Zero-Trust Kubectl Access

Empower operations and development teams to easily access clusters via kubectl while complying with regulatory and governance requirements -- enforced via easy RBAC configuration. All access is audited, and DOES NOT require inbound firewall rules.

Standardize Clusters & Workflows

Create and easily apply cluster blueprints so it’s easy to standardize your Kubernetes clusters deployed across clouds, data centers and the edge.

Centralized Logging & Monitoring

Rafay provides turnkey integration with Fluentd, Prometheus, Splunk, Datadog and a number of other logging/metrics platforms for detailed cluster resource visibility and monitoring.

Low Total Cost of Ownership

Rafay is up and running in less than 1 day and requires less than 1 full-time resource to operate & manage all clusters on an ongoing basis.

CNCF-Certified Service Provider

Rafay is certified by the CNCF and our certified upstream distro, the Rafay MKS, supports the same APIs as upstream Kubernetes ensuring compatibility with other distros

Single Pane of Glass Management for all your Kubernetes Clusters

The MKP is a SaaS platform that works natively with cloud-based Kubernetes offerings, e.g. GKE for GCP, AKS for Azure, and EKS for AWS. For on-premises and edge use cases, MKP natively provides a CNCF-compliant Kubernetes distribution — Rafay MKS — to manage the complete lifecycle of Kubernetes clusters.

…With Built-in Security

The MKP’s unique zero-trust architecture DOES NOT require inbound access to your Kubernetes clusters. There is no need to poke holes in firewalls or set up SSH access or reverse-tunnels. Zero-Trust Kubectl Access governs kubectl activity by end-users as well as CI/CD systems with role-based access control (RBAC) and auditing of all actions.
