If you’re looking for a hybrid cloud solution for your enterprise, Google Anthos gives you all the flexibility and scalability you need to manage workloads across a range of platforms.

What sets Anthos apart

Google Anthos, which recently won a CRN Magazine 2019 Product of the Year award, is a hybrid cloud platform providing you with a consistent platform for building and managing applications across all environments, from on-premises to your choice of cloud provider.

For enterprises just getting started with containers and Kubernetes, Anthos can be a powerful tool for managing workloads without the need for updated hardware on-premises. It also gives you a single pane of glass to monitor applications scattered across different platforms, reducing the major headaches from keeping projects on track in separate environments.

Before you get started with Anthos, though, you need to ask yourself these three questions:

cloud-with-question-mark_redapt_icon_11. What are your current challenges?

Different hybrid cloud solutions provide you with different tools.

When making a decision on a solution, you need to understand how you’re currently managing, measuring, and operationalizing your different security, performance, and change control needs across on-premises and in cloud platforms.

If your enterprise is not already using containers and tools such as Kubernetes for your development, making the investment in time and education will help you get the most out of a hybrid cloud platform.

We can help you make the transition.

Different industries have different compliance and security needs. Healthcare and banking, for example, have much more stringent rules when it comes to data privatization and management. These differences will help inform your best hybrid cloud solution.

Once you’ve answered these questions, or partnered with a company to answer them, you’re in a better position to find the right solution.

But while there are a number of tools at your disposal, including solid offerings like Dell Technologies Cloud Platform and VMware Cloud Foundation, we have found that Google Anthos is increasingly a top solution for many enterprises.
