Google announces Cloud Services Platform, its attempt to slash the costs of hybrid

July 24, 2018 / Dale Walker

Google has announced the launch of its new Cloud Services Platform, a collection of Google services that will be seen by many as the company's first attempt to fill a gap in its hybrid cloud services portfolio. The new platform, revealed at Google Cloud's Next conference this week, brings together Google's work with containers and open source to address a growing problem of companies turning to hybrid cloud environments only to find an increased workload from the number of conflicting provider policies. Google's Cloud Services Platform will fold its Kubernetes platform, which is now an industry standard for containerisation, and its recently developed open source platform Istio, into a single service for companies wanting to avoid rising admin costs.
