Anthos Ready Platform Partners

Anthos Ready Platform Qualification

Anthos Ready Platform validation ensures our partners' hardware platforms provide the foundation for GKE on-prem. This includes testing:

  • The functions most reliant on the underlying virtualization and hardware platform such as the ability to deploy and scale a cluster.
  • The successful interaction of GKE on-prem with the platform partner's compute, network, and storage solution.
  • The ability to deploy on-premises and expose a workload through a supported load balancer on Anthos GKE on the partner platform.

Anthos Ready Platform Partners have also demonstrated a strong understanding of Anthos architectures, its features, and how customers benefit from all components of Anthos. Google commits to working with Anthos Ready Platform Partners to ensure they have the most up-to-date validation regarding Anthos and its roadmap and looking for ways to jointly improve the customer experience.
