Containerize on-premises applications and be cloud-ready
With GKE On-Prem, you get the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) experience directly in your data center. A quick and simple install and upgrade experience that’s validated and tested by Google. GKE On-Prem also registers your cluster with Google Cloud Console in order to have a single-pane-of-glass view for managing all your clusters. The abstraction layers built into Google Kubernetes Engine and GKE On-Prem allow you to make your applications “cloud-ready” and move them to the cloud at your own pace, all while developing operational skills that are portable.
Consistent Kubernetes experience
Keep your environments in sync with the same Kubernetes version, OS, runtime, and add-ons between GKE On-Prem and Kubernetes Engine.
Secured Kubernetes clusters
Always stay up to date with the latest Kubernetes versions and security patches tested and validated by Google. Upgrade with confidence with zero downtime.
Centralized multi-cluster management
Monitor, manage, and enforce policies across all your Kubernetes Engine clusters, whether in the cloud or on-prem, from Google Cloud Console.
GKE On-Prem features
Identity and access management
Control access to your cluster using Cloud Identity or your on-premises identity provider.
Connect your on-prem cluster securely to Google Cloud Platform without the need for complicated VPNs.
Security and compliance
GKE On-Prem has a fully integrated stack of hardened components, including OS, container runtime, Kubernetes, and the cloud to which it connects.
Integrated logging and monitoring
Stateful application support
GKE On-Prem isn’t just for 12-factor apps. You can attach persistent storage to containers and even host complete databases.
Fast, consistent builds
Use Google Cloud Build to reliably deploy your containers to any Kubernetes Engine cluster, cloud, or on-prem.
Workload portability, on-premises and cloud
GKE On-Prem runs conformant Kubernetes, enabling workload portability to other Kubernetes platforms across clouds and on-premises.
GCP Console offers useful dashboards for your project's clusters and their resources. You can use these dashboards to view, inspect, manage, and delete resources in your clusters.
