Give Customers a SaaS Experience, Whether it Runs as SaaS or On-prem

Modern software companies deliver cloud promises with Kubernetes and Rafay

“Think about this enterprise software running, and people just sign up for it, and it's there for you right on the spot … That's the beauty of the work that Rafay helped us to do over the last few months.”

Anant Verma

VP of Engineering, Alation

Alation helps their customers effectively derive value from their large volumes of data – providing capabilities like data search, discovery, metadata management, cataloging, governance, and policy management. A key goal in developing their solution is to become more cloud native and offer all the benefits of SaaS to their customers, such as a seamless onboarding experience.

To offer a more cloud native experience for their customers, they want to containerize their services and deploy them on Kubernetes in AWS. Seamlessly integrating their services with an EKS platform while managing customer data has required careful planning.

Alation is not alone in their desire to offer seamless delivery and management of their software to customers. And sometimes, application requirements force on-premise deployment of software. This could be for security reasons, or because the application requires access to customer data that is so vast it cannot be moved to another cloud. But offering the SaaS experience to customers accelerates their productivity, since they can sidestep the need to juggle data transport, software management and upgrade tasks and focus just on using the software to support their businesses.

Rafay’s next-gen Kubernetes automation platform was designed for this, so high tech and software companies can meet the specific requirements of each of their customers while providing a smooth and efficient user experience.
