Wabion is making rapid progress with the provision of Google Cloud’s hybrid and multi-cloud platform, Anthos. Wabion, a leading Google Cloud Premier Partner in German-speaking countries, is participating in Google Cloud’s Anthos Acceleration Program and already offers a sandbox environment on Anthos GKE on-prem”on dedicated bare metal hardware. This enables Wabion customers to run applications across multiple cloud and on-prem environments.
With Anthos, Google Cloud is simplifying and accelerating the development and management of applications. Anthos is built on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and enables containerized applications to be operated both on-premise and in the cloud. For example, the backend of an application can be located in the customer’s data center and the frontend in Google Cloud or another public cloud provider. Anthos’ open source technology also reduces vendor lock-in risk.
Together with several European partners, Wabion participates in Google Cloud’s Anthos Acceleration Program. The experts from Wabion already offer customers the option of automatically setting up a VMware infrastructure dedicated to the customer and performing an Anthos deployment on it. This enables companies to familiarize themselves with the development and operation of applications in a hybrid and multi-cloud setup. With the German company Kaeser Kompressoren (around 7,000 employees), Wabion has its first Anthos customer.
Christian Sciullo, Country Manager Switzerland/Austria bei Google Cloud, über Wabions Fortschritte.
“We are making good progress. In the next phase, we will tackle further automation and the connection to other cloud providers such as AWS or Azure. Our customers should be able to use the full Anthos power as quickly as possible”.
Michael Gomez, Managing Director Wabion Switzerland
Google Cloud recently announced that Anthos support for multi-cloud is generally available. New functions for managing security and policies and for automatic containerization will follow. Anthos Service Mesh ensures full visibility and security in data plane traffic between hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures.
