Container Delivery Network

Rafay Systems

Rafay enables applications with dynamic origins to achieve consistently high performance globally.

With Rafay’s Container Delivery Network, developers can distribute, manage and run containerized microservices closer to users and devices. By deploying application logic closer to users, developers can deliver highly improved, low-latency experiences. Rafay does for containerized microservices what CDNs do for static content.

Rafay’s simplifies the deployment and on-going operations of interactive apps on a global scale, making it easy to push code to production without DevOps and SRE support. Developers can leverage the platform’s varied DevOps toolsets across a globally distributed set of compute clusters and choose from different data and configuration synchronization models. With Rafay’s platform and network, developers can deliver rich, interactive experiences without the cost and complexity of building, maintaining this infrastructure themselves.

Technical Benefits

  • Distributed Container Platform - Effortlessly scale, automate and operate container-based workloads without having to manage multiple container clusters across geographies.
  • Global Traffic Management - Easily automate traffic management and steering decisions to ensure latency-sensitive apps execute close to their users.
  • Intent-based Workload Placement - Seamlessly orchestrate and automate workload placement based on stated intent and configured policies.
  • Data Distributions and Synchronization - Simply maintain multi-purpose data pipelines via easy-to-use APIs that distribute configuration data, user profile information, policy messages.
  • Global Footprint - Effortlessly scale highly available resources close to users with Rafay’s pay-as-you-go service.


  • Dynamic Origin Delivery for Interactive, Personalized Online Experiences - Modern apps that engage with interactive, personalized and dynamic experiences need Rafay’s global network of compute clusters to rapidly deliver content from dynamic origins to users.
  • Multi-Cloud API Routing and Policing - Enterprises migrating to the public cloud encounter performance impacts as workloads rely on API or microservices gateways to execute authentication and policing functions. With Rafay, API gateway functions can be processed closer to endpoints, thus curtailing traffic “tromboning” and reducing application response times.
  • Distributed Data Ingestion and Preprocessing - Remote sensor data must be moved to a distant data center or public cloud for processing. With Rafay, developers can deploy custom logic, packaged as containers, to determine which data is useful and can be processed locally, versus sending all data to the cloud or data center.
  • SaaS Scaling - Successful, low-latency SaaS offerings are typically deployed in more than one geography and maintaining this global presence is challenging. With Rafay, SaaS apps can be effortlessly deployed globally in minutes.
