Google’s Cloud Services Platform is now available in beta. First revealed at Google Cloud Next conference in 2018, the software-based hybrid offering is designed to build and manage services both on premise and in the cloud.
The platform is built on top of Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). CSP includes GKE On-Prem, a managed Kubernetes service providing remote lifecycle management of your on-prem clusters. GKE On-Prem runs on your existing hardware, saving you time and money.
You can write once and deploy to the cloud or on-prem, using a consistent platform that spans all your environments. Furthermore, you can benefit from CSP’s design as it allows you to integrate existing networking, storage, and identity capabilities that you already use.
According to Google, CSP is built on open APIs and lets you modernize your applications at your own pace, innovate faster, and improve operational security and governance.
