Anthos provides you with a consistent platform for building and managing containerized applications across hybrid infrastructures and helps your developers become more productive across all environments. Anthos provides all the mechanisms that are required to bring your code into production reliably, securely, and consistently, while minimizing risk. Anthos is built on open-source technologies pioneered by Google Cloud, including Kubernetes and Istio, enabling consistency between cloud and on premises environments like PowerFlex. Anthos GKE (on GCP and on-prem), Anthos Service Mesh, and Anthos Config Management are the core building blocks of Anthos. Anthos users purchase services and resources from the GCP Marketplace and also has integrations with platform-level services such as Stackdriver, Cloud Build and Binary Authorization.
Anthos puts all your IT resources into a consistent development, management, and control framework, automating low-value tasks across your PowerFlex and GCP 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 that include public cloud and on-premises. A hybrid cloud strategy lets you extend the capacity and capabilities of your IT, without upfront capital expense investments by using the public cloud and preserving your existing investments by adding one or more cloud deployments to your existing infrastructure.
