Google is building out its Anthos platform to connect microservices and offer fully managed serverless workloads.
Anthos is a platform designed to address platform as a service needs for developers as well as hybrid cloud deployments for enterprises. Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian outlined Anthos at Google Cloud Next in April and pitched it as a digital transformation platform for enterprises.
Jennifer Lin, Product Management Director for Google Cloud, said the platform is gaining momentum among early adopters and customers in banking see Anthos as a way to standardize their Kubernetes environments. “We are modernizing them in place,” said Lin, who noted that some sectors can’t move data to the cloud due to regulations. Anthos is a way to bring Google Cloud’s scale to their internal clouds.
