As you may have seen, our team shared some updates on our hybrid cloud journey. As part of our mission to leverage the best of cloud ecosystems, we have been exploring Google Cloud Platform's Anthos, which is Google's cloud-centric container platform for running modern apps anywhere consistently at scale.
Now, Hitachi Vantara’s United Compute Platform (UCP) offers on-prem deployment options of Anthos on premises (a component of Google Distributed Cloud Virtual, aka GDC Virtual), which can provide greater performance potential for modernized applications while maintaining support for orchestration tools like Kubernetes and Service Mesh in hybrid multi-cloud scenarios.
