Extend Terraform with Rafay’s Validated Terraform Provider
Rafay fully supports IaC driven through HashiCorp’s Terraform. Our official Terraform provider has been validated by Hasicorp and provides a seamless way to enhance Kubernetes services into your existing Terraform workflows.
Automate More Than Just Cluster Provisioning
Most Kubernetes solutions make it really easy to use IaC tools to provision new clusters. But that’s where they stop. Rafay has turnkey services for everything needed to run an Enterprise-grade fleet of Kubernetes clusters from provisioning and access management to cluster Blueprinting and security addons. With Rafay, every workflow you need to run your Kubernetes lifecycle can be automated and governed through the same Terraform approach you’re used to by either augmenting native Terraform or centralizing with Rafay’s Terraform Provider.
