Google Cloud Set To Announce General Availability Of Anthos On AWS

Sharing is caring!

In its quest to boost the capabilities of its hybrid and multi-cloud Anthos platform, Google Cloud will announce the general availability of Anthos on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Google Cloud is planning to herald the development at its Next ’20: Digital Connect event. It was later postponed amid the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and there are no details on the new timing for the announcement. Google Cloud announced its plans to disclose that Anthos support for virtual machines (VMs) and Anthos on Microsoft Azure are now being tested with customers and in early preview with customers. 

Google Cloud said Anthos support for virtual machines will enable organizations to bring policy and automation for both containerized and VM-based workloads through Anthos, irrespective of where they are in their modernization journey.

Ajay Dubedi, the CEO and Founder of Cloud Analogy, remarked the progress on Anthos is a big step forward in Google Cloud to deliver on its vision for the platform. Dubedi added this hybrid cloud approach will provide enterprises the flexibility to deploy and run advanced applications as and when required as the market continues to grow for application modernization without the need for development teams to learn or adjust to the nuances of each environment. 

It was also added by the Cloud Analogy CEO that a big majority of customers are already leveraging Azure and AWS in addition to the Google Cloud Platform and this will enable these businesses to streamline their application management across those platforms.

Dubedi said VM support offers an initial stepping stone for workloads that are not yet on the modernization roadmap.

A few months back, Google Cloud launched its fully managed Anthos platform to allow customers to build and manage platforms across on-premises data centers, GCP and rival clouds. Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian said Anthos is seeing “very good momentum” among customers and partners. Kurian remarked that we are seeing a lot of customer interest in ensuring that they can build applications and decouple where they’re building the application and where it can run and it is the choice that it gives them.
