Simplifying Kubernetes Lifecycle Management – Discover the Power of Rafay with OpenShift

We are very excited to announce that Rafay is now available in the Red Hat Ecosystem Catalog!

Rafay’s availability in the Red Hat Ecosystem Catalog means OpenShift customers can now consume Rafay’s Kubernetes add-on, multi-tenancy and access management capabilities across data centers and cloud-based clusters.

Enterprises using Red Hat OpenShift in data centers or in the cloud, or those operating a combination of OpenShift and managed Kubernetes services, e.g. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), can consume Rafay’s SaaS offering to standardize Kubernetes configuration and policies across all clusters. Rafay also helps customers centrally and easily standardize multi-tenancy models across OpenShift and EKS/AKS/GKE, along with secure access for developers across clouds and data centers. Enterprises leveraging Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) and Microsoft Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO) in the cloud can also leverage Rafay capabilities to ensure centralized management and control through a single pane of glass.

Rafay provides the following automation capabilities for enterprises employing Red Hat OpenShift alongside EKS, AKS, and/or GKE:

  • Add-on Management and Standardization: Centrally enforce and create standards for add-ons deployed across all clusters (on-premises and in the cloud) through easy-to-use cluster blueprints that are versioned, auditable, and consumable via Terraform, GitOps API, CLI and GUI-based workflows. Cluster blueprints can also detect and prevent configuration drift, making it easy for enterprises to manage 100s or 1,000s of clusters
  • Bi-modal Multi-tenancy: Support for both namespace and cluster-based tenancy models that enable platform teams to support mature and early Kubernetes users via a singular platform, enabling delivery of cluster- and namespace-as-a-service capabilities through self-service workflows. Customers can easily create ServiceNow and Backstage-based workflows for developer self-service
  • Multi-cluster Access Management and Auditing: Zero-trust access security that enables developers and site reliability engineers to access multiple clusters or namespaces without requiring VPNs, jumphosts, etc., complete with centralized role-based access control (RBAC), and comprehensive user-level auditing

Rafay KOP specifically adds the following automation capabilities for enterprises employing EKS, AKS, and/or GKE in the cloud:

  • EKS/AKS/GKE Lifecycle Management: Turnkey cluster provisioning, scaling and lifecycle management of EKS, AKS, and GKE clusters through deep integration with managed Kubernetes services from public cloud providers. With this capability set, no prior Kubernetes experience is needed in the cloud operations/SRE team to provision and operate Kubernetes clusters in the cloud, resulting in a 75% TCO reduction for enterprise-grade Kubernetes operations.
