Rafay’s deep Amazon EKS & EKS-D integration means you have one console to manage the operations of your Amazon EKS clusters and applications across AWS regions and in data centers
Centralized Multi-Cluster Management
Deploy, view, manage, and upgrade all of your Amazon EKS (& EKS-D) clusters in any AWS region using Rafay’s self-service workflows
Native GitOps Pipelines
Drive standardized EKS cluster and application deployments and updates using Git as the source of truth
Standardize with EKS Cluster Blueprints & Templates
Use Rafay to easily create and apply cluster blueprints across your fleet of EKS and EKS-D clusters across Amazon, data centers and the edge
Intent-Based Application Deployments
Intelligently deploy your AWS applications where they are needed based on policy, labels, namespaces, geography, etc.
Spot Instance Optimization
Save costs using spot instances for worker nodes. Admins can leverage built-in Rafay workflows for instance-type diversification, automated instance interruption handling, and leveraging auto-scaling groups.
Nodes and Nodegroups
Easily provision both managed and unmanaged nodegroups, and manage nodegroup scaling up and down to zero, as needed
Secure Zero-Trust Access
Manage EKS clusters without inbound access to VPCs or without setting up bastions, while keeping EKS control planes private. Rafay leverages mutually authenticated TLS channels that are spawned dynamically and are tied to enterprise identity systems

Rafay supports secure AWS credentials as well as delegated IAM capabilities for one-click provisioning/scaling/deprovisioning workflows
Easily configure add-on policies for services such as Amazon ECR, AppMesh, ALB Ingress Controller, etc., through Rafay
Full Amazon IAM Support
Rafay fully supports AWS IAM Roles for EKS cluster lifecycle management and doesn't require Amazon secrets to be managed/secured separately. The use of AWS IAM roles is strongly recommended by AWS.
Integrate & Automate
Comprehensive automation for Amazon can be quickly developed by using either our command line interface (RCTL) utility or REST APIs
Centralized Logging & Monitoring
Rafay provides built-in, detailed audit trails for administrative activities across all EKS clusters as well as intuitive, integrated monitoring, visualization and alerts for all EKS and EKS-D clusters under management
