Anthos clusters provide a unified way to work with Kubernetes clusters as part of Anthos, extending GKE to work in multiple environments. You have consistent, unified, and secure infrastructure, cluster, and container management, whether you're using Anthos on Google Cloud (with traditional GKE), hybrid cloud, or multiple public clouds.
This guide contains detailed sets of documentation for all available Anthos clusters environments: on Google Cloud, on-premises (both VMware and bare metal), and on AWS, as well as core GKE information that's applicable to all environments.
While Anthos clusters on-premises and on other public clouds are based on GKE, you can also add conformant non-GKE Kubernetes clusters to Anthos. With attached clusters, you can take advantage of some Anthos features on your existing systems even without a full migration to Anthos clusters. Attaching clusters lets you view them in the Google Cloud Console along with your GKE and Anthos clusters, and enable a subset of Anthos features on them.
Finally, this guide also includes the documentation for Connect, which you use to register your clusters to Google Cloud so that you can manage them together in Anthos.
