Eligible Google Cloud partners are invited to participate in the Anthos Ready Partner Initiative to qualify their solution by meeting the requirements defined for applicable categories: Storage, Network, Platform, Security & Identity, Data & Analytics, Developer Tools & IT Ops, IOT, or machine learning. We have launched the following Anthos Ready Partner solutions and will continue to add more.
Anthos Ready Storage
Anthos customers want the freedom to choose their storage provider and leverage existing investments in on-premises infrastructure. With Anthos Ready Storage, we’re excited to have strong support from partners including Dell, HPE, NetApp, Portworx, Pure Storage, and Robin.io. These partnerships will provide customers with the flexibility to work with the storage provider of their choice, while also ensuring they can benefit from industry standards like Container Storage Interface (CSI).See requirements
Anthos Ready Platform
For customers that want to leverage existing investments in their own data centers, we have Anthos Ready Platform partners who have validated Anthos on their solution stack. In addition, they have provided solution briefs, giving our mutual customers a choice of hardware based on their storage, memory, and performance needs. Anthos Ready Platform partners today include Atos, Cisco, Dell EMC, HPE, Intel, Lenovo, NetApp, and Nutanix.See requirements
Anthos Ready Networking Solutions
Anthos customers want the freedom to choose their networking provider and leverage existing investments in on-premises network infrastructure. Anthos manual load balancing mode helps to bring load balancer support to Anthos GKE deployed on-premises from partners including Citrix and F5. These partnerships provide customers with the flexibility to enable the load balancer provider of their choice.
Anthos Ready Solutions in the Google Cloud Marketplace
Visit the Google Cloud Marketplace to discover, deploy, and use Anthos Ready Kubernetes applications for security and identity, data, analytics, developer tools, and IT ops. Kubernetes applications are enterprise-ready containerized solutions with pre-built deployment templates, featuring capabilities such as portability, simplified licensing, consolidated billing. They can be deployed on Anthos, in the cloud, on-premises, or in the future on Kubernetes clusters hosted in other environments. These are not just container images, but partner-built commercial solutions.

Anthos Ready Storage
CSI is a way for vendors to expose their block and file storage systems to Contain Orchestration Systems (COs). Through this process, Google is validating the vendor’s storage systems. Anthos Ready Storage qualification ensures that our Partners' CSI drivers can provide a seamless integrated experience between Anthos GKE, and the Partners' block/file storage system. In order for a Partners' CSI driver to be considered for the program, vendors must support:
- Ability to deploy the storage CSI driver and its dependencies, using Kubernetes framework
- Core functions that customers require today including, dynamic provisioning of volumes, via the Kubernetes native Storage APIs
- The ability to manage storage for Kubernetes scaleup and scale down scenarios
- Support workload portability with persistence storage for the stateful workloads
Anthos Ready Platform
Anthos Ready Platform validation ensures our partners' hardware platforms provide the foundation for Anthos GKE. 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 Anthos GKE with the platform partner’s compute, network, and storage solution.
- The ability to deploy 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.
