Tech mogul Google have launched Cloud Services Platform for enterprises deploying Kubernetes container systems as well as serverless applications. With this launch, Google seeks to fortify its hybrid platform, GCP (Google Cloud Platform), for running containerized apps across different hosting environments.
Google say that enterprises across different markets have deployed container systems in cloud environments to accelerate business-critical applications. They claim that these enterprises also need hybrid solutions to combine legacy technologies with on-demand services and scale them according to client requirements.
By launching Cloud Services Platform for Kubernetes and serverless applications, Google will be ticking all the boxes when it comes to providing enterprises with a unified platform that provides high speed, security and reliability across on-prem and cloud environments. They say that this platform will provide networking to managed containerized application to communicate with each other.
Speaking about the benefit provided by the platform, Urs Hölzle, Senior Vice President for technical infrastructure at Google, commented:
You can use a consistent set of services that are independent of the application logic, so developers don’t need to be experts on security, and these security policies can work on all services, regardless of where they’re located. All of this requires no code changes inside your application.
