GKE - Anthos on Google Cloud supports both release channels and static versions for GKE clusters. However, we recommend the use of release channels whenever possible, as they provide additional benefits such as automated updates to GKE clusters.

CC - Config Connector is certified to run in Anthos Config Management on Google Kubernetes Engine. Not all features work in other Kubernetes distributions.

CR - Cloud Run for Anthos support for Anthos clusters on AWS is in Preview. Please reach out to your Google representative for details on how to access this feature.
