OCR On-Prem documentation

Overview

OCR On-Prem enables easy integration of Google optical character recognition (OCR) technologies into your on-premises solution. The OCR On-Prem solution gives you full control over your infrastructure and protected image data in order to meet data residency and compliance requirements. This best-in-class machine learning technology gives you access to next-generation character recognition models that are more accurate, smaller in size, and require fewer computing resources to run than existing solutions.

OCR On-Prem is a Google Cloud Marketplace application and can be deployed as a container to any GKE cluster. This gives you flexibility and greater control in deployment, whether you decide to deploy on Google Cloud with GKE or on-premises with Anthos. This allows you to take advantage of the simplicity, agility, and cost-effectiveness of Google's container hosting and management across hybrid environments.
