Rancher RKE Operations

Streamline Rancher RKE Operations With Rafay KOP

Cloud-first enterprises utilizing Rancher RKE on premises, and managed Kubernetes services such as Amazon EKS and Microsoft AKS in the cloud, can leverage Rafay’s Kubernetes Operations Platform (KOP) to implement automation, visibility, security and governance across their on-premises and cloud based Kubernetes clusters via a single pane of glass. Rafay’s zero-trust fundamentals make it easy for platform teams to interact with any clusters anywhere, running any distribution, making it easy for them to manage multi-distro cluster fleets with a single operational tool chain.

Kubernetes Operations Features for Rancher RKE

Rafay’s multi-distro approach means you have one console to manage the operations of your Rancher RKE clusters, your managed Kubernetes clusters (e.g. Amazon EKS and Microsoft AKS), and applications across public cloud regions and in data centers

Centralized Multi-Cluster Management

Deploy, view, manage, and upgrade all of your Rancher RKE clusters in public cloud regions or in data centers using Rafay’s Terraform-based Infrastructure Provisioning feature set

Native GitOps Pipelines

Drive standardized Rancher RKE 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 Rancher RKE and cloud-based managed Kubernetes clusters across public cloud regions, data centers and the edge

Intent-Based Application Deployments

Intelligently deploy your applications where they are needed based on policy, labels, namespaces, geography, etc.

Secure Zero-Trust Access

Manage Rancher clusters without inbound access to VPCs or without setting up bastions, while keeping cluster control planes private. Rafay leverages mutually authenticated TLS channels that are spawned dynamically and are tied to enterprise identity systems

Integrate & Automate

Comprehensive automation for Rancher RKE based clusters 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 clusters (Rancher RKE + cloud managed) as well as intuitive, integrated monitoring, visualization and alerts for all clusters under management
