Google Container Engine + Pivotal Container Service

4 years ago prayertitus 0
Cloud users are overwhelmingly opting for a hybrid cloud strategy.
According to RightScale’s 2017 State of the Cloud Report, 85% of enterprises now have a multi-
cloud architecture strategy. Many of these customers
are looking to container technology to help modernize
their application development and DevOps functions
across their cloud investments.

and simplification

To help organizations manage their container deployments across private and
public clouds, Google is fostering an open path to hybrid cloud. This approach builds on the momentum and popularity of Kubernetes, the open-source container orchestration system for cross-cloud portability and ease of management.
One of the companies we’ve been working closely with to deliver
on this vision of an open, hybrid cloud is
Pivotal — which we recently named our Global Technology Partner of the Year. Last year, we announced that
PCF was available on Google Cloud Platform, enabling enterprise customers to build and deploy apps that can scale, store and analyze data quickly both on-prem and in the cloud. And today we’re
excited to extend the work we’re doing with Pivotal to more businesses looking to move to the cloud.

Continuous innovation and collaboration with
cloud industry leaders

Today, we’re happy to
announce another collaboration with
Pivotal, based on the open-source project Kubo, a tool
that instantiates, deploys and manages Kubernetes
clusters with high availability on public and private
clouds. We’re working closely with VMware and Pivotal
to support Pivotal Container Service™ (PKS), a new
service that enables enterprises and service providers to
deliver production-ready Kubernetes on VMware
vSphere and Google
Cloud Platform
(GCP). PKS lets enterprises easily
use the same container orchestration technology that
Google uses for its web-scale services in their on-
premise deployments. Specifically, PKS includes:</

portability with Google Container Engine

of the key features of PKS is release-level
synchronization with Google Container Engine (GKE),
ensuring that PKS is always on the same Kubernetes
release as Container Engine. Release-level
synchronization lets developers and operators build their
applications for on-premises or public cloud targets
without having to worry about platform drift or

Access to Google Cloud Platform

PKS will also come bundled with a
new service broker that provides out-of-the-box access
to GCP services including:

These services will be available on
day one, for all PKS deployments, giving you access to
Google’s advanced cloud services for all of your
container-based applications.

Engine is slated for general availability by end of 2017.
