Google Cloud announced the launch of its Cloud Services Platform (CSP) in beta, extending Google Cloud services and the power of Kubernetes and Istio into customer on-premises infrastructure.
CSP is a modern platform that simplifies building, running, and managing services both on-premise and in the cloud. Google Cloud first shared its vision for CSP at Google Cloud Next 2018, and has built it on open APIs to give enterprises the freedom to modernize their applications at their own pace, innovate faster, and improve operational security and governance.
For many enterprises, modernization means navigating existing on-premise investments as well as cloud infrastructure, while simultaneously adopting cloud-native tools and development practices.
CSP is built on top of Google Kubernetes Engine(GKE), the industry’s leading managed Kubernetes service with advanced security and automation. CSP includes GKE On-Prem, a managed Kubernetes service providing remote lifecycle management for on-premise clusters, keeping them updated and secure.
