“NTT DOCOMO Ventures Invests in RAFAY SYSTEMS
NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Inc. (headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO, Takayuki Inagawa) has invested in RAFAY SYSTEMS, Inc. (RAFAY), headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA and led by CEO and Cofounder, Haseeb Budhani.
Today, organizations are deploying applications in multi public cloud, private cloud and on-premise environments to meet latency, compliance and geo-fencing requirements. To accelerate this process, companies are adopting software container technology and Kubernetes orchestration software. The new technologies offer advantages for rapidly application deployment and scaling but can be complex to use and scale.”
Key highlights of Containerized Cloud Systems
- Autoscaling and downscaling: It automatically performs load balancing of traffic across matching containers.Kubernetes will automatically scale up your cluster as soon as you need it,and scale it back down to save you money when you don’t.
- Auto-Healing in Kubernetes. In Kubernetes, there are several key concepts that are related to containers’ health and auto healing: pod’s phase, probes, and restart policy. Each Kubernetes pod has a field phase, which provides a simple, high-level summary of where the pod is in its lifecycle
- Heterogenous clusters:It helps in developing a cluster with a mixture of virtual machines, on-premises servers, or bare metal in the company data centre.
- Storage support:It has the provision for persistent storage support with support for Amazon Web Services EBS, Google Cloud Platform persistent disks, and many more. Vendors like Red Hat, Dell, NetApp and EMC offer persistent storage for Kubernetes.
- High availability:It has very high availability such as multi-master and cluster federation enabling the linking of clusters together for load balancing.
