Rafay and Amazon Accelerate SonicWall’s Adoption of Containers and Amazon EKS
When we first talked to Sonicwall, they were already in the process of embracing the cloud and modern application architectures for their products. In addition to standardizing on Docker as their container technology, they chose Amazon as their cloud partner of choice because of their reliability, global footprint, and a deep portfolio of additional managed technology services including but not limited to databases, security, Kubernetes management and logging.
To manage the number of growing applications (and all of the complex dependencies), and perhaps showing a level of maturity beyond their years, they also wanted a single pane of glass that could give them visibility and control of the applications no matter where they resided — whether they be on Amazon, on premises or at the edge.
That’s where Rafay came in.
Rafay Systems delivers a cloud-based Managed Kubernetes Service that helps companies like SonicWall manage clusters and application operations at scale. The solution is the only one in the market with native Amazon EKS integration so developers and IT users can easily bring up and manage the full lifecycle of EKS clusters across AWS Regions. And it includes a Kubernetes distro so that customers can also manage (and move) applications and clusters on premises or at the edge. This, in combination with a deep bench of certified Kubernetes experts ensures the success of each and every Kubernetes journey.
