This guide contains the steps needed for a user to consume one of the “deployment option reference design’s” for the Rafay “Standard Operating Model”.

This option:

  • Is based on Amazon EKS Kubernetes clusters
  • Uses declarative specifications for all resources that can be version controlled and used to replicate/reproduce infrastructure anytime
  • Uses AWS S3 for cluster backup and restore

  • Uses “GitHub Actions” for turnkey automation and workflows
