Stop Worrying About Kubernetes - Transform Patient Outcomes Instead

Modern biotech and pharmaceutical companies choose Rafay for Kubernetes automation

“[Rafay] allows us to focus on serving the needs of our patients and our longer term vision of finding cancer earlier and ultimately saving more lives.”

Guardant Health Increases Reliability of AI/ML Applications with Rafay

Guardant Health’s HPC solution, a supercomputer with hundreds of nodes and dozens of petabytes of storage, analyzes biological samples from clinics and laboratories using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). These analytics services have stringent internal SLAs – since doctors and patients are waiting for time-sensitive oncology test results, it’s imperative that the HPC infrastructure never experiences an outage.

Since their bioinformatics pipeline needed a modern architecture and orchestration layer, the company chose containerization and Kubernetes as critical components of its tech stack. But the open-source Kubernetes management they implemented was difficult to maintain and frequently went down.

Many other biotech and pharmaceutical companies have similar challenges. They need reliable, low-maintenance Kubernetes operations that allow for fast application deployment and portability, but not at the cost of reliability and security. Finding the right skillset to do this can be difficult.

Rafay’s next-gen Kubernetes automation platform was designed to handle these challenges, so biotech and pharma companies can focus on saving lives instead.

Challenges in Biotech and Pharma

Rafay Lets You

Challenges in Biotech and Pharma Manually provisioning and managing clusters across different environments is taxing, time consuming, and introduces errors.
Rafay Lets You Easily automate the provisioning and lifecycle of every Kubernetes cluster, on premise or in any public cloud.
Challenges in Biotech and Pharma Inconsistencies across clusters leads to snowflake configurations, reliability issues, and management nightmares.
Rafay Lets You Standardize and enforce a model for centrally managing Kubernetes environments with guardrails set by platform teams.
Challenges in Biotech and Pharma Long lead times happen when developers have to wait for operations teams to respond to their requests for resources.
Rafay Lets You Spin up environments on demand with self-service processes that follow required policies and controls.
Challenges in Biotech and Pharma Costs rise when every team, feeling the need to be separated from other teams, creates their own clusters.
Rafay Lets You Share resources efficiently across teams by enforcing controlled multi-tenant access, isolation, and even chargeback.
