Cloud Run for Anthos

Leverage Kubernetes and serverless together using Cloud Run integrated with Anthos.

Bringing serverless to Anthos

As an Anthos integration, Google Cloud’s app modernization platform, Cloud Run provides custom machines types, VPC networking, and integration with existing Kubernetes‐based solutions. Cloud Run for Anthos provides a flexible serverless development platform on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). Cloud Run for Anthos is powered by Knative, an open source project that supports serverless workloads on Kubernetes. Cloud Run is also available as a fully managed serverless platform, without Kubernetes.
