Google Embraces Hybrid as Path to the Future Cloud

July 26, 2018 / Scot Petersen

oogle’s enterprise cloud strategy came into focus this week at its third annual Next conference. The search giant announced products that, for the first time, make it a player in the hybrid cloud space.

Google’s cloud technology has already helped many vendors establish their own hybrid cloud services—such as Red Hat, IBM, VMware, Pivotal and others—to enable customers to run container-based cloud apps in their own data centers or in the cloud.

The new Cloud Services Platform strategy now gives Google an on-premises story of its own. CSP is a collection of Google’s cloud software led by Kubernetes, the now ubiquitous container orchestration platform. Included in CSP is the new GKE On-Prem, a distribution of the Google Kubernetes Engine that offers portability between public or private clouds.
