Google has introduced a new open platform called “Anthos” to run and manage apps from anywhere.

Based on the Cloud Services Platform that Google announced in 2018, “Anthos” lets users run applications on existing on-premise hardware investments or in the Public Cloud.

“Anthos not only allows customers to deploy Google Cloud in their own data centers but also gives them the flexibility to build, run and manage their workloads within their data center, on Google Cloud, or other cloud providers (Multi-Cloud), without making any changes,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud.

“Anthos” will also let users manage workloads running on third-party clouds like Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.

“We are excited that partners including Cisco, Dell, HP, Intel, Lenovo, and VMware are offering joint solutions with us,” Kurian told the gathering at the “Google Cloud Next” event here on Tuesday.

Google also announced, “Anthos Migrate” in beta, which auto-migrates virtual machines (VMs) from on-premises, or other clouds, directly into containers in Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) with minimal effort.

“Google Cloud’s software-based approach for managing hybrid environments provided us an innovative, differentiated solution that was able to be deployed quickly for our customers,” said Darryl West, Group CIO, HSBC. (IANS)

In a bid to build a sustainable digital model for local news, Google has entered into a three-year partnership with UK publisher Archant for Project Neon which will target up to three communities, identified as being currently underserved by local news.

The project will build new all-digital news platforms for those communities, created in a concerted effort to reverse the commercial challenges local news publishers have faced in the past decade.

“Project Neon will rethink local news from every perspective, from storytelling to layout, from business models to website design,” Matt Kelly, Chief Content Officer, Archant, said in a blog post on Thursday.

“Nobody can accurately predict how the future of local journalism will look. But with our shared vision for building strong communities, Archant and the Google News Initiative will break new ground towards the goal of a local news industry that not only survives, but thrives,” Kelly said. (IANS)
