Rafay Kubernetes Operations Platform Received Highest Possible Rankings for its Architecture, Flexibility, Scalability, Manageability and Ease of Use

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rafay Systems, the leading platform provider for Kubernetes management and operations, today announced that it was recognized as a “Leader” and “Outperformer” in GigaOm’s 2023 Radar Report for Managed Kubernetes. Rafay’s leading position in the Innovator and Platform Play hemispheres highlights the company’s continued innovation and commitment to creating the most comprehensive, enterprise-grade platform to eliminate Kubernetes complexity. After an extensive review of managed Kubernetes solutions, Rafay achieved the highest scores possible for its architecture, flexibility, scalability, manageability and ease of use.

Despite its growth and adoption, Kubernetes remains difficult to manage and the operational challenges surrounding Kubernetes can overwhelm otherwise capable IT teams. This stymies an enterprise’s speed of innovation and delays the realization of business benefits modern applications deliver. Enterprises require a managed Kubernetes service to relieve the operational burden of maintaining Kubernetes and its ecosystem.

Kubernetes is a complex ecosystem and enterprise customers need managed options to simplify architecture and operations, particularly at scale,” said GigaOm analyst Justin Warren. “The Rafay Kubernetes Operations Platform is a robust and secure option for large-scale management of Kubernetes clusters. Not only does it provide excellent lifecycle management at scale and supports complex enterprise operational needs, it also offers fine-grained visibility into costs and enables support for multiple technologies alongside Kubernetes. This allows customers to migrate applications over time without having to split their attention with a bi-modal approach.”
