Today I am excited to announce that Rafay Systems has achieved Advanced Technology Partner status in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). The Advanced tier is the highest designation APN Technology Partners can achieve and includes companies that have met specific benchmarks for successful customer engagements and technical certification.
This milestone demonstrates the Managed Kubernetes Platform’s ability to help enterprises accelerate their cloud migration to AWS, securely manage clusters across AWS regions and on-premises through a single pane of glass, and address their Kubernetes skills gap with Rafay’s team of certified Kubernetes experts.
“Achieving Advanced Technology Partner status is a critical step for Rafay and supports our mission to help enterprises accelerate their Kubernetes journey,” said Sean Wilcox, SVP, Marketing at Rafay Systems. “We look forward to working with Amazon even more closely to help our joint customers both modernize their applications in AWS and streamline Kubernetes management with the Rafay Managed Kubernetes Platform.”
Rafay Systems delivers a SaaS-first, enterprise-grade Kubernetes management platform that enables companies to deploy and operate modern applications across data centers, public cloud and edge environments. The platform, called the Managed Kubernetes Platform (MKP), has been built from the ground up for enterprise-class scalability, security, interoperability and support. MKP offers deep integration with Amazon EKS, enabling enterprises to securely manage all their EKS clusters from a single pane of glass. With MKP, enterprises can manage their Kubernetes fleet centrally while leveraging each and every powerful feature EKS has to offer.
Rafay also helps customers speed up their Kubernetes journey by partnering with their DevOps teams to deliver faster results. Rafay’s deep bench of certified Kubernetes experts are available 24×7 to assist on an ongoing basis to assist with the operationalization of modern applications in AWS or on-premises. As a result, IT & DevOps teams at companies such as Sonicwall have partnered with Rafay and Amazon to deploy Kubernetes faster, reduce security & operational risk, and control the total cost of Kubernetes operations.
Rafay is also a member of the APN Global Startup Program which enables qualifying startups to gain product design wins, visibility, exposure, leads, and commercial opportunities made possible with exclusive APN resources and dedicated Startup Partner Development Managers (PDM) with deep AWS knowledge and startup business experience, that guide startups in their growth journey with APN. The APN is a global program helping partners build a successful AWS-based business, by helping organizations build, market, and sell their offerings. The APN provides valuable business, technical, and marketing support, to help startups achieve exponential growth.
