What is Anthos? The outstanding strength of Google Anthos

Cloud Computing platform after a period of development requires a different, superior experience. That's when Multi-cloud becomes the next trend, the trend of supporting the governance system with the "write one, run everywhere" platforms.Anthos is also gradually becoming a bridge to bring on-premise platforms at enterprises to Google Cloud.

About Anthos

Anthos's reach is a solution hybrid and multi-cloud powered by the latest innovations in Google's distributed systems and service management software. Anthos is an application modernization and distribution platform created by Google Cloud Platform provide. Anthos combines the managed service of Google Cloud, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), GKE On-Prem, and the Anthos console to help you build and manage modern hybrid applications across environments.

What is Anthos?

Anthos is not just a product, but a platform that powers multiple services and helps with application modernization, cloud migration, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud management.

Components of Anthos . solution

Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) is the core division of Anthos and serves as the central command and control center for this new service. But Kubernetes is not the only technology here, and there are several other key components that enhance the power and performance of Anthos.

What is Anthos 2

Google Kubernetes Engine

As noted above, Google Kubernetes Engine sits at the heart of Google Anthos. Customers can manage distributed infrastructure in on-premises data, Google's cloud, and other cloud platforms using the GKE console.

GKE On-Premise

Google is also providing a software platform based on Kubernetes and compliant with GKE On-Premise. This means that users can run this infrastructure on any compatible hardware and management of the platform will be under the control of Google. Currently, GKE On-Premise acts as a virtual appliance on VMware vSphere 6.7 Update 3 while support for hypervisors such as KVM and Hyper-V is in the pipeline.

Istio Service Mesh

Istio Service Mesh to facilitate the management of the affiliate network throughout the platform. For this purpose, Istio acts as a mesh connecting components of different applications spanning GCP, data centers, and other clouds. It works through seamless integration with software-defined networks such as ACI, Cisco, VMware NSX, and Google's Andromeda. Customers working with network devices like the F5 will be able to take advantage of Istio for firewalls and load balancers.


This cloud migration technology is used by Google to support Kubernetes. It works by providing two important capabilities – converting existing virtual machines into Pods (Kubernetes applications); stream on-premise virtual and physical machines for replication in GCE instances. Velostrata is the first P2K (material to Kubernetes) migration engine built by Google, and this capability is being replicated with Anthos Migrate, which is currently in beta.

Anthos Configuration Management

Anthos users tackle Kubernetes deployments running in multiple environments. Because of Kubernetes' nature as an extensible and policy-driven platform, Google sought to simplify its configuration management with Anthos. Anthos Configuration Management aims to do that by enabling customers to apply and maintain configurations, right from deployment through to setting password and network policy configurations for one or more clusters simultaneously.


Stackdriver brings visibility to Anthos infrastructure and applications. Customers can monitor the status of clusters running in Anthos along with the health of the applications deployed in each managed cluster. It acts as a monitoring, logging, tracing and observation platform.

GCP Cloud Interconnect

No hybrid cloud platform is complete without a high-speed connection between the enterprise data center and the cloud infrastructure. Cloud Interconnect can provide speeds of up to 100Gbps while connecting the data center to the cloud.

GCP Marketplace

Google has created a curated list of ISVs and open source applications that can run on Kubernetes. Customers can deploy applications such as Cassandra and GitLab databases in Google Anthos with a single click. Finally, Google may offer a separate application portfolio maintained by IT internally.

Features of Anthos

Google Cloud Platform Ecosystem provides Anthos with outstanding multi-cloud support key features

What is Anthos 3

Enterprise-class container coordination and management services

Anthos allows you to run Kubernetes clusters anywhere, in both cloud and on-premises environments. A unified managed Kubernetes experience with simple installations and Google validated upgrades.

Automate policy and security at scale

Define, automate, and enforce policies across environments to meet your organization's unique security and compliance requirements. Anthos Config Management evaluates changes and deploys them to all Kubernetes clusters to always get the state you want.

Fully managed service mesh with built-in visibility

Anthos Service Mesh frees up operations and development teams by empowering them to manage and secure traffic between services while monitoring, troubleshooting, and improving application performance.

Modernize your security for hybrid and multi-cloud deployments

Anthos integrates security into each stage of the application lifecycle — from development to build to run — and enables in-depth security strategy with a comprehensive portfolio of security controls across all models this implementation.

Anthos' strengths

Many businesses deploy multiple cloud platforms to take full advantage of the features these platforms offer. However, managing different applications on different cloud platforms is a difficult challenge. Anthos can help your business face a number of challenges by enabling multi-cloud integration.

Anthos enables consistency across multiple clouds

Anthos uses Kubernetes and delivers policy enforcement and coordination across cloud and on-premises platforms. Your business can use the same open software across multiple environments.

 What is Anthos 4

With the mechanism "deploy on any cloud”, Anthos's reach allows you to have a holistic view of all your services running in a multi-cloud framework. The Mesh and Config Management service allows you to scale different applications running on different cloud platforms. It frees you from the constraints that cloud providers have.

Anthos offers flexibility and options

Google is committed to giving businesses more options in choosing a cloud service provider. Sometimes, organizations start developing applications in a cloud and face speed issues due to lack of powerful tools. Anthos' open technology allows you to be flexible and avoid being locked into any cloud. Anthos works seamlessly with AWS. And if you've built processes and tools for AWS, you can install Anthos directly into an existing AWS VPC.

Through the features and strengths of Anthos's reach, Google wants to take advantage of Anthos cloud as a bridge to change the story around the multi-cloud platform. Overall, the benefits of Google promoting Anthos will extend beyond the industry. The Google Cloud Platform ecosystem and open source community will also benefit from rapid Kubernetes adoption.
