Anthos – Build and manage modern hybrid applications

Bringing the cloud to you.

Transform your IT and build apps for today and the future

Anthos (formerly Cloud Services Platform) lets you build and manage modern hybrid
applications across environments. Powered by Kubernetes and other industry-leading
open-source technologies from Google, Anthos transforms your
architectural approach, lets you focus on innovation, and allows you to move faster than
ever without compromising security or increasing complexity. Become a strategic enabler
of your business by modernizing your new and existing applications with containers,
microservices architecture, and a service mesh delivered, and managed, by Google across
your data center and the cloud.

Gain speed with reliability

Modernize in place

Modernize your applications on-premises or in the cloud. Increase your business agility,
get your products to market faster, and maximize resource utilization with Kubernetes
services managed by Google.

Automate policy and security at scale

Automate policy and security at scale

With a service-centric view of your infrastructure, you will spend less time managing your
applications and get greater awareness, consistency, and control. Define and manage your
configuration centrally, at a higher level of the stack, and let the system handle the

Consistent experience

Consistent experience

Future-proof your investments by building on top of the platform that is designed to run
where you need it to, on-premises or in the cloud, with a consistent view and controls
across your environments.

Put simply, the Cloud Services Platform [Anthos] provides us the security we need, the portability we want, and the productivity that our developers crave.

How does Anthos help you manage hybrid environments?

Anthos puts all your IT resources into a consistent development, management, and control framework, automating away low-value and insecure tasks across your on-premises and Google Cloud infrastructure.

Within the context of GCP, the term hybrid cloud describes a setup in which common or interconnected services are deployed across multiple computing environments, one based in the public cloud, and at least one being on-premises.

A hybrid cloud strategy lets you extend the capacity and capabilities of your IT, without up-front capital expense investments by using the public cloud, as well as preserve your existing investments by adding one or more cloud deployments to your existing infrastructure. For more information, refer to Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Architecture Patterns.

Running Anthos

How does Anthos work with Apigee?

Microservices provide a simple, compelling way for organizations to accelerate moving workloads to the cloud, serving as a path towards a larger cloud strategy. Istio enables service discovery, connection, and management for microservices. But as soon as those services are needed for internal groups, partners, or developers outside of the enterprise, they quickly cross the line and become APIs.

Just as organizations need services management for microservices, they need API management for their APIs. Apigee API Management complements Istio with the robust features of Google Cloud’s Apigee API management platform, Apigee Edge, by extending API management natively into the microservices stack. Apigee Edge features include API usage, access, productization, catalog, and discovery, plus a developer portal to create a smooth experience for developers and increase API consumption.

How does logging and monitoring work with Anthos?

More than simply making it easier to migrate workloads to the cloud, Anthos improves service operations by providing administrators with a service-centric view of their infrastructure, rather than infrastructure views of services.

Stackdriver Service Monitoring works with Istio services and includes the following views:

  • Service graph: see all your microservices, how they communicate, and their dependencies
  • Service level objective (SLO) monitoring
  • Service dashboard: All your signals for a given service are in a single place

On-premises, GKE On-Prem offers:

  • Compatibility with existing on-premises logging solutions
  • Open-source Elastic search, Fluentd, and Kibana add-on for logging
  • Prometheus + Grafana for monitoring
  • Stackdriver Logging and Monitoring for system-level components to accelerate troubleshooting from Cloud Support
