Google Cloud offers a variety of support packages to accommodate your support needs. All Google Cloud Support packages include support for Anthos Service Mesh for customers who have purchased Anthos licenses. If you have an existing Anthos license, you already have support for Anthos Service Mesh.
For existing generally-available products, such as GKE and Anthos clusters on VMware, Google Cloud Support offers first line support as usual. For more information, see the following support pages:
