Intel & Google Collaborate to Simplify Hybrid & Multi-Clouds Deployment
The global tech majors, Intel and Google Cloud announce their collaboration, aiming to bolster enterprises’ ability to conceive and deploy cloud-first business models using their existing on-premise, self-managed hardware. As a part of the collaboration, the two organizations have co-developed reference architectures optimized for ‘Anthos on bare metal’ solution.
The customers who are looking forward to deploying data center and edge computing can leverage the reference architectures to rapidly deploy enterprise-class applications on their existing hardware infrastructure and efficiently handle complicated hybrid- and multi-cloud tasks.
In a stamen issued by Intel, Jason Grebe, VP & GM of Cloud and Enterprise Solutions Group, Intel, said, “With today’s rapidly evolving business climate, enterprises are constantly looking for new ways to modernize their business while leveraging their existing infrastructure.
He added, “Running Anthos on bare metal using servers based on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors will simplify the deployment of a cloud-first approach, opening a wide array of new use cases across retail, telco and manufacturing industries.”
Anthos on bare metal is poised to help customers with consistency as they move containerized applications between common architectures within different cloud environments.
It allows enterprises to run Anthos on their existing on-prem physical servers, deployed on an operating system without a hypervisor layer
Commenting on the occasion, Rayn Veerubhotla, Director, Partner Engineering at Google Cloud, said, “Anthos on bare metal provides customers with more choice and flexibility over where to deploy applications in the public cloud, on prem or at the edge. Intel’s support for Anthos on bare metal ensures that customers can quickly deploy their enterprise applications on existing hardware, simplifying their path to hybrid- and multi-cloud approaches.”
