Transform Your IT and Build Apps for the Future with Cloud Anthos
Anthos, a Google cloud’s new open platform, which lets you run your applications on-premise or on public cloud, securely and flexibly. It is a modern application management platform that provides a consistent development and operations experience.
Introduction to Anthos:
Anthos, a Google cloud’s new open platform, which lets you run your applications on-premise or on public cloud, securely and flexibly. It is a modern application management platform that provides a consistent development and operations experience. Developed on open source technologies introduced by Google, including Kubernetes, Istio, and Knative, Anthos enables consistency between on-premises as well as cloud environments. It lets your application to automatically migrate VMs from on-premise servers or any other cloud services directly to containers in Google Kubernetes engine. This migration happens in a very simple way without modifying the VM or the application itself.
Benefits of using Anthos:
The advantage of using Anthos is that it lets you manage workloads, even on third-party cloud platforms like AWS and Azure.
End users can run, manage, deploy application on any cloud platform without requiring admin access or learning different infrastructures for every platform.
The IT team does not need to spend time on developing VMs and their maintenance, instead they can focus on managing and developing their application. It enables consistency between on-premise server and cloud platform services.
Anthos has proven to be beneficial to many companies by modernizing their workplace. End users are working with a cloud platform of their own choice instead of age-old on-premise server.
Anthos also lets you manage policies and security at the time of deployment, it also helps you create multi-cluster policies out of the box that set and enforce role-based access controls, resource quotas, and create namespaces.
With the help of Anthos, Cisco will develop a hybrid cloud infrastructure, helping them to quickly set up an integration between Anthos and Cisco’s data center, networking, and security technologies, including Cisco HyperFlex, Cisco ACI, Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud and Cisco SD-WAN.
Why more enterprises should move to Anthos?
With partners like Cisco, Dell, VMWare and many others, it is widely supported across the globe. Besides, Anthos is fully managed, even on-prem server users get the benefits of open source without the hassle of needing to operate it.
Anthos is the only software-based platform available today that lets you run your applications unmodified on existing on-premises hardware investments or in the public cloud.
It also offers tight security into each stage of the application lifecycle: from development, to build, and to run. If you are a security admin you can let developers develop, knowing your policies are enforced.
Anthos provides a very simple model for computing, networking, and even service management across all clouds and data centers.
Anthos increases accessibility across all environments, including the ability to perform zero-downtime upgrades and upgrade Kubernetes cluster versions.
Furthermore, it is also speeding up its application modernization. Google Kubernetes engine automatically brings serverless benefits like scale up, scale down and eventing to your applications. Google is developing a worldwide network for Anthos to innovate faster and smarter. Anthos is working closely with key partners such as Cisco, VMware, Dell EMC, HPE, Intel, and Lenovo have committed to deliver Anthos on their own hybrid cloud infrastructure.
