Zsah Partners with Rafay Systems to Extend Kubernetes Operations Solutions in Europe

London 22 June 2022 - zsah, the UK-based managed cloud and IT services provider, has announced a partnership with Rafay Systems, the leading platform provider for Kubernetes Operations.

This partnership will extend the availability of Rafay’s Kubernetes Operations Platform (KOP) in Europe. Rafay’s KOP is the only cloud-built solution that streamlines Kubernetes operations for companies deploying modern applications in public clouds, data centres or at the edge. Together, zsah and Rafay will help European-based enterprises accelerate their application modernisation initiatives by helping them control the complexity, resource requirements, and spiralling costs associated with do-it-yourself (DIY) Kubernetes approaches.

"With Rafay's Kubernetes Operations Platform, which offers turnkey services that help alleviate the pain and complexity of managing Kubernetes at scale, we can help companies with their on-premises, cloud, and edge modern application deployments,” said Amir Hashmi, CEO and founder of zsah. “By adding critical automation, security, visibility, and governance capabilities to Kubernetes across IT environments, we can now help enterprises quickly and easily scale their Kubernetes operations. Working with Rafay means that enterprises can control the complex resource requirements and manage increasing costs associated with DIY Kubernetes strategies more effectively to ensure the success of their application modernisation initiatives."

"The complexity of operating Kubernetes infrastructure is a significant challenge in the enterprise. However, removing [MC1] this complexity is key to successful application modernization,” said Mahesh Chaudhari, Vice President of Global Business Development and Alliances at Rafay. “We are proud to partner with zsah, which has an established reputation in providing scalable and secure managed cloud infrastructure services in EMEA and look forward to extending Rafay’s Kubernetes Operations Platform [MC2] in this region.”

Kubernetes (K8s) is the foundation of many cloud-native applications, which are core to the digital transformation impacting many sectors. Kubernetes automates numerous operations, such as deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. While K8s is key to successful infrastructure and applications modernisation efforts, it is complex and difficult to master. A DIY approach to K8s comes with the need for dedicated resources to manage the scale and complexity of the technology, that must also build enterprise-level security, governance, and compliance capabilities.

In this new partnership, zsah and Rafay will eliminate the cost and complexity associated with a DIY Kubernetes approach. Rafay integrates seamlessly with managed services and Kubernetes distribution used in public clouds, in data centers and at the edge and offers a broad set of services needed to accelerate innovation across both Kubernetes infrastructure and modern applications:

  • Multi-Cluster Management Service: Enables the lifecycle management and blueprinting support for clusters
  • GitOps Service: Enables continuous infrastructure orchestration and application deployment through multi-stage, git-triggered pipelines.
  • Zero-Trust Access Service: Enables controlled, audited access for developers, SREs, and automation systems to Kubernetes infrastructure, with just-in-time service account creation and user-level credentials management.
  • Kubernetes Policy Management Service: Enables policy management for clusters via the Open Policy Agent (OPA) framework for Kubernetes security and governance.
  • Backup & Restore Service: Enables disaster recovery and migration of the Kubernetes control plane and application data.
  • Visibility & Monitoring Service: Enables development, operations, and security/governance teams to visualize and monitor modern apps and underlying Kubernetes infrastructure through dedicated dashboards.
