Rafay Systems, the platform provider for Kubernetes management and operations, has joined the AWS Service Ready Program for Amazon EC2 Spot Instances. This designation recognizes that the Rafay Kubernetes Operations Platform (KOP) – which simplifies the lifecycle management and centrally manages automation and governance of Kubernetes clusters and cloud-native applications across private data centers, public clouds and edge – has demonstrated successful support for Amazon EC2 Spot Instances.
As the company puts it, joining the Amazon EC2 Spot Ready Program differentiates Rafay as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product that works with Amazon EC2 Spot Instances. The Amazon EC2 Spot Ready Program helps customers identify AWS Partner products. Additionally, partners can benefit from Amazon EC2 Spot savings for their workloads. The program also ensures that customers will have a well architected and cost-optimized solution available through their Amazon EC2 Spot Partner offering.
To support the deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Service Ready Program to help customers identify solutions that seamlessly integrate with AWS services, spend less time evaluating new tools and more time scaling their use of solutions that work on AWS.
Rafay makes it easy for cluster administrators to significantly save costs by simplifying the use of EC2 Spot Instances on Amazon EKS Clusters. By leveraging Rafay’s KOP, AWS customers can implement and codify best practices associated with the use of Spot Instances, including diversification, automated interruption handling and leveraging Auto Scaling groups to acquire capacity.
Rafay’s KOP is a purpose-built Kubernetes management and operations solution for platform teams. Its built-in automation and governance capabilities help simplify and reduce the time it takes to deliver Kubernetes services that empower enterprises to innovate faster.
