Keep your environments in sync with the same Kubernetes version, OS, runtime, and add-ons between Anthos deployed on VMware in your on-premises environment and in the cloud.

Identity and access management

Control access to your cluster using Cloud Identity or your on-premises identity provider.

Security and compliance

Anthos deployed on VMware 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

Anthos deployed on VMware 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-premises.

Workload portability, on-premises and cloud
